New Delhi: A controversial case of an inter-faith marriage from Chhattisgarh was taken up for hearing in Supreme Court this morning, reported IANS.

A Muslim man who had married a Hindu woman, admitted that he had converted to Hinduism in order to be accepted by the woman’s family. But the woman’s family called the entire affair a sham.

 

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

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

The lawyer representing the woman’s father maintained that the entire thing 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.

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