Conversion to Islam solely for marriage not valid: A’bad HC

In a significant judgement, the Allahabad high court has ruled that the religious conversion of girls “without their faith and belief in Islam” and “solely for the purpose of marriage” to Muslim boys could not be held valid.

Justice Surya Prakash Kesarwani passed the order while dismissing a batch of petitions filed by five couples, hailing from different districts of Uttar Pradesh, who had sought “protection as married couple”.
In each case, the boys were Muslim while the girls were Hindus who got converted to Islam for solemnising “nikah”.
