HC gives protection to couple in inter-religion marriage

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High court on Thursday restrained police from taking any action against a Muslim girl who claimed to have married a Hindu boy against parents’ wish and embraced Hinduism.

Issuing notice to Delhi police, Justice V K Jain directed it to file a response by February 25.

The court was hearing a petition filed by 19-year-old Shabnam (name changed) as well as her husband, seeking direction to police not to harass them following an FIR registered with Dwaraka police by the girl’s father.

According to the petitioners, both of them are major and got married in an Arya Samaj Mandir in Jamuna Bazar on December 22 against the wish of their parents.

The girl’s parents lodged an FIR and the police have been harassing not only the couple but also the husband’s brother who supported the marriage, the petition said.
