Allahabad HC dismissed the plea of married couple saying ‘conversion of religion for sake of marriage is not acceptable’
30th October, 2020
On Friday (30 October 2020) The Allahabad High Court has dismissed a writ petition seeking police protection filed by a married couple. The high court noted the woman was a Muslim and converted to Hinduism just a month before she got married.
Justice Mahesh Chandra Tripathi stated that it clearly reveals that the conversion took place only for the purpose of the marriage. Justice Tripathi referred to a 2014 judgment in which the same court had observed that conversion just for the purpose of marriage is unacceptable. The court then dismissed the writ petition, saying that it is not inclined to interfere in the matter under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.
