Be A "Loyal Husband": Supreme Court To Muslim Man Who Married Hindu Woman

New Delhi: Supreme Court this morning heard a controversial case of an interfaith marriage from Chhattisgarh.

A Hindu woman had married a Muslim man. The man admitted that he converted to Hinduism in order to be accepted by the woman's family. The woman's family has disputed the man's conversion to Hinduism, calling it a sham.

A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said, "We are only concerned only about her future. We are not against inter-religious or inter-caste marriage."

The apex court observed that the man should be a "loyal husband" and a "great lover".

The lawyer for the woman's father insisted that it was a racket to trap girls. The SC has asked the man to file an affidavit and show bona fide.

The court asked the man whether he had changed his name after the marriage in an Arya Samaj temple and taken proper legal steps to change his name.

The court observed that it is not against inter-faith and inter-caste marriages. "We only want the future of the girl should be secured." The lawyer for the woman's father said that the woman does not need any protection.

The top court sought a reply from the state government and allowed the intervention application of the girl.
