The Uttarakhand high court ordered the district magistrate, to inquire in the matter of a Muslim woman’s conversion to Hinduism and marrying a Hindu man, as their application for conversion is not processed and if processed the court demanded the details of the same.

The matter came in when the girl along with her husband filed a petition to sought protection from her brothers who might harm them physically according to both the petitioners.
The court provided police protection to the couple.
