The Allahabad High Court dismissed a writ petition filed by a married couple seeking police protection, according to a report on Live Law. The high court noted the woman was a Muslim and converted to Hinduism just a month before she got married.
Justice Mahesh Chandra Tripathi said it clearly reveals that the conversion took place only for the purpose of the marriage. He referred to a 2014 judgement in which the same court had observed that conversion just for the purpose of marriage is unacceptable. The court then dismissed the writ petition, saying that it is not inclined to interfere in the matter under Article 226 of Constitution of India.
