I'm a Malaysian Chinese, still married to my current wife but my girl friend recently gave birth to a baby whom I'm the biological father. I went to the National Registration Department (JPN) to register my baby's birth certificate but they rejected and told me that I can't include my name as the father as I'm still legally married to my wife unless I'm Muslim then it's possible.  Need help... please advise.

Why do you want to include your name as the father?

Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) officer talking nonsense.

No way as your identity card (K/P) has been registered as "married" and there is no marriage certificate. Register the mother only as "single mom".

Since I'm the father...I should have my name in this child's birth certificate. To me it's the right thing to do.

When the officer key in my details, they have the records of my current wife's particulars and everything, so they told me I can't put my name as the child's father.

Is it the right thing to do? Even if you have the financial means to do?
1. A child is born out of wedlock?
2. To have 2nd wife without the blessings of the first. Even for Muslims, permission from the 1st wife is require. It is wrong of the JPN officer not to quote the other conditions attached. It gives the impression to non-Muslims that a male Muslim can abuse the Syariah Laws.

Yes a child born out of wedlock is wrong... I know that was my mistake but that's not the point right now. Bro...a lot of men out there don't even have the guts and responsibility to go thru it. I'm just saying what is right for me to do now is to raise this child and let him have a father. I do not wish the birth certificate to state fatherless.
