Calcutta High Court once again legalized marriage of minor Hindu girl by Muslim

via Hindu Samhati published on January 19, 2010

Again a minor Hindu girl and a Muslim boy of 22 years eloped. When the case has been moved in the Division Bench of Calcutta High Court comprising Hon’ble Justice Pinaki Ghosh and Justice Prasenjit Mandal, they told, according to media report, that they are not worried about the age of the girl, because the marriage was held under Muslim Law. Its proof also has been produced in the court. Hence they are satisfied. The Hon’ble Judges ordered to present the boy and the girl to the court. The Judges only want to see how they are, and they want to hear from the girl about her mental condition.

Here the boy is Seikh Aajit Ali, 22, and the girl is Moumita Chakraborty. Both are resident of two neighboring villages under Daspur P.S. of West Midnapur district. According to Idrish Ali, advocate of Aajit Ali, the age of the girl is 19. But according to the parents of the girl, their daughter is minor in age. [Ref. – Anandabazar Patrika (p.-4), 16.01.2010]
The advocate will try to save his client, here Seikh Aajit Ali, it is understandable. But strange is the stance of the Hon’ble Judges. They are satisfied that the marriage has been solemnized under Muslim Marriage Act. Hence, age of the girl is no bar.

Funny. How a Hindu girl can marry under Muslim Act? Has she has been converted to Islam? If she has been converted to Islam, how can she do this without proper consent of her legal guardian if she is a minor? In the case of her conversion to Islam before marriage, those who have converted her has committed a culpable offence by converting a minor without the consent of her parents. Why didn’t the Honorable court take cognizance of this offence? If there is no bar for converting a minor boy or girl, then a boy of 9 years or a girl of 8 years can easily be duped and converted by unscrupulous elements. Does our Constitution permit this? We are no legal experts. But, two recent verdicts of Calcutta High Court (the other was delivered on 16.12.10 in the case of Sahidul) will destroy the Hindu Society throughout India.

If these verdicts are within the ambit of our Constitution, then this Constitution is dangerously anti-Hindu. Then we should have no respect for this Constitution. Then we, the Hindus need a separate Hindu Law for us and to protect ourselves. And if the Hon’ble Judges exceeded the limit of the Constitution, then it will be suspected that they are playing in the hands of anti Hindu forces, may be Jehadi forces. After the Justice Dinakaran case and several other cases of impropriety on behalf of some Judges, the Judges are no longer holy cows, they are not above scrutiny.

All the well wishers of Hindu Society should take a serious note of these anti Hindu verdicts of Calcutta High Court.
