In a rare case where the social phenomenon called love jihad appears to have been reversed, a formerly Muslim man, who had duly married a Hindu woman by adopting Hinduism, told the Supreme Court earlier this week that his ‘conversion’ was not a hoax. This Muslim man has said to the court that he would remain a Hindu for a lifetime and that he had no intention of adopting Muslim religion again.

The 35-year-old man from Chhattisgarh filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that he loved Hinduism. He has adopted Hinduism on his own free will. He has done all this under the rules laid down by the law.

The apex court had asked this person to prove his righteousness so that it could be proved that there was no fraud in his act of embracing Hinduism, the faith of his wife.

The court had said in the previous hearing that it only wanted to protect the youth and the interests of the girl and wanted to be sure that the groom’s intention was honest. It laid emphasis on the future of the girl.

Love jihad it isn’t if future of bride is secure?

In the affidavit, the former Muslim man said that in 2014, he met the young woman (now his wife) in Raipur college. There they developed friendship, which gradually turned into love. After knowing each other for a long time, they decided to get married in the year 2018.

On 25 February 2018, both went to the Arya Samaj Mandir where a “purification” ritual was held “and I embraced Hinduism”, he said. After converting, the same day, “we both got married in the temple according to Hindu customs. Saptapadi and seven rounds etc. were also held,” he said.

This man has stated in the affidavit that he had been following Hinduism since the day of his conversion. He has said that he has not adopted the religion of Islam again, nor has any intention of doing so in the future. He wants to live with his wife for a lifetime. He also said that he is committed to being with his wife. He and his family are able to meet the needs of his wife.

The girl’s father had challenged the order of the Chhattisgarh High Court, which had allowed the husband to live with the wife. The father says that the young man converted to Hinduism and married, but later returned to Islam. Earlier on 27 August last year, on the will of the girl, the Supreme Court had allowed her to stay with her parents.

While the girl was staying with her parents, the police reached her house one day and took the young woman away with them. The matter reached the high court. In the last hearing, the Supreme Court had said that they were not against inter-caste and inter-religious marriages because such relationships were good for society. The court said that it was a “very good” thing that this would eventually break the caste wall.
