Religious Conversion Just For Sake Of Marriage Is Unacceptable: Allahabad HC

- Advertisement -

Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court has said in an important decision that it is not valid to convert only for marriage.

The court dismissed the petition of two lovers of different religions, allowing them to appear before the magistrate concerned and record their statement.

The petition sought to prohibit family members from interfering in their peaceful marital life.

The court has refused to intervene in the case.

This order has been given by Justice MC Tripathi on the petition of Priyanshi alias Samreen and others. The court said that the girl accepted Hinduism on June 29, 2020 and got married a month later on July 31, 2020.

It is clear from the record that conversion has been done to get married.

The court cited the verdict of the Nur Jahan Begum case, in which it said that changing religion for marriage is not acceptable.

In this case, the Hindu girl changed her religion and married a Muslim boy.

The question was “Whether conversion of religion of a Hindu girl at the instance of a Muslim boy, without any knowledge of Islam or faith and belief in Islam and merely for the purpose of Marriage (Nikah) is valid?”

The court cited the Hadiths of the Quran, saying that it is not acceptable to change religion without knowing about Islam and without faith. It is against Islam.

The court added that if the conversion is not “inspired by religion feeling” and is done “with the object of creating a ground for some claim of right…the conversion shall not be bonafide”.

Citing this decision, the court has refused to grant relief to the petitioner who married a Muslim as a Hindu.
