Muslim youth embraces Hinduism to marry a girl, ties knot in temple, changes his name too
CHANDIGARH: Amid the controversy over inter-faith marriages in India, a Muslim youth married a Hindu girl, adopting her religion and even changing his name.
This incident has been reported from Yamunanagar district in Haryana. In this case, the youth and a girl were in love. Both belonged to different religions--the youth was a Muslim while the girl came from a Hindu family.
On November 9, the girl had left her home. After her disappearance, the girl's kin lodged a complaint with the police and a case of abduction was registered against the youth, Akram.
The couple had meanwhile approached the court, which directed the police to provide them security, as they had tied the knot. The youth, Akram, had married the girl at a temple, with Hindu rituals. He also said that he has changed his name from Akram to Arvind apart from embracing Hinduism.
The girl's statement was recorded. She affirmed that she would stay with the youth. Hence, the couple was sent to a safe place amid police protection. The youth hails from Mandebri in Yamunangar while the girl belongs to Chhappar. The marriage was solemnized in a temple in Panchkula.
