Allahabad HC: Conversion only for sake of marriage is not valid



The Allahabad High Court has said that conversion just for the sake of marriage is not valid.

The court remarked while dismissing a plea by a newly married couple.

Justice MC Tripathi passed the order last month in a petition filed by Priyanshi Alias Samreen and her partner.

In the petition, it was stated that the couple got married in July this year, but family members of the woman were interfering in their marital life.

Dismissing the petition, the court observed, "The first petitioner has converted her religion on June 29, 2020 and just after one month, they have solemnised their marriage on July 31, 2020, which clearly reveals to this court that the said conversion has taken place only for the purpose of marriage."
