Madhya Pradesh HC: Special Marriage Act won't legalise a union prohibited under personal law

IndiaTimes Thursday, 30 May 2024
Madhya Pradesh HC has ruled that marriage between a Muslim man and a Hindu woman is an "irregular (Fasid)" marriage according to Muslim personal law and it remains so even if the marriage is performed under Special Marriage Act. "Marriage under Special Marriage Act would not legalise the marriage, which is otherwise prohibited under Muslim personal law," stated Justice G S Ahluwalia.

MP High Court: 'Hindu-Muslim Marriage Invalid Under Muslim Law Despite Special Marriage Act'

In a significant ruling, the Madhya Pradesh High Court declared that a marriage between a Hindu woman and a Muslim man is invalid under Muslim personal law, even if registered under the Special Marriage Act.

The couple, represented by counsel Dinesh Kumar Upadhayay, aimed to secure their union officially but faced legal hurdles due to conflicting personal laws.

Rahul Gandhi Takes On BJP In Gujarat, Vows To Defeat Modi In Gujarat ‘Like I.N.D.I.A Did In Ayodhya’

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said by trouncing the BJP in Ayodhya, the INDIA bloc has defeated the Ram temple movement once led by L K Advani, and expressed confidence that the saffron party will meet the same fate in Gujarat in the next election. He said the Congress has been challenged and threatened by the BJP, but it will defeat the saffron party and Narendra Modi in Gujarat just the way it was defeated in Ayodhya. Gandhi was addressing party workers days after the Congress and BJP clashed outside the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) office when saffron party workers went there to protest against his (Gandhi's) remarks on Hindus. #RahulGandhi #BJP #Gujarat #Modi #INDIA #Ayodhya #PoliticalRally #ElectionCampaign #Congress #Opposition #IndianPolitics #VowsToDefeat #ElectionBattle #RahulVsModi #GujaratElections
