It is unacceptable to convert just to get married: Allahabad High Court

Rajesh Kumar Pandey, Prayagraj:
 It is unacceptable to change religion just for marriage, the Allahabad High Court has said. The High Court had said this while rejecting the application of the couple who got married in a heresy. Kapal had filed an application in the high court seeking directions from the girl's father and the police not to interfere in their marriage.

Dismissing the writ petition of Priyanshi alias Samarin and her husband, the High Court said, "The court has found that the first petitioner (young lady) converted to Islam on June 29, 2020 and got married on July 31. This shows that the conversion was for marriage purposes only. Happened. " In the petition, Kapal submitted that he got married in July this year. But the girl's family is interfering in their marriage.

Dismissing the couple's plea, the High Court said they could not show leniency by intervening under Article 226 (Writ Jurisdiction) of the Indian Constitution. Earlier in 2014, Justice Maheshchandra Tripathi relied on the same court's verdict in Nurjahan Begum's case. In the case of Noor Jahan Begum too, the High Court had ruled that conversion only for marriage was not acceptable. The court handed down the verdict on September 23.

Noorjahan Begum also filed several writ petitions in the case seeking protection of the newlyweds. The girl had converted from Hinduism to Islam and got married.
