The Indian Supreme Court on Wednesday urged a Muslim man to be a “loyal husband” and “a great lover” after he tied-the-knot with a Hindu girl.
According to NDTV, the country’s top court has taken up the controversial inter-faith marriage case from Chattisgarh.
The bench, headed by Justice Arun Mishra, said,”We are only concerned about her future. We are not against inter-religious or inter-caste marriage.”
The man admitted he had 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.
The counsel for the woman’s father insisted that it was a racket to trap girls. The apex court has asked the man to file an affidavit and show bona fide.
The court queried the man on 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 averse to inter-faith and inter-caste marriages. “We only want the future of the girl should be secured.” The counsel for the woman’s father said that the woman does not need any protection.
