Allahabad HC directs Meerut SSP to give protection to Muslim woman married to Hindu man


Allahabad, May 27 (ILNS) The Allahabad High Court has directed the Senior Superintendent of Police, Meerut to safeguard the life of a woman Yati alias Kahkasha and her husband, who were threatened with death by Yati’s father.

A Single-Judge Bench of Justice JJ Munir passed this order, while hearing a petition filed by Yati alias Kahkasha and her husband.

The woman said she is 19-years-old and has married a Hindu man, according to her free will. The petitioner said she got married according to Hindu rites on April 16, 2021 at the Arya Samaj Mandir, Maliyana, Meerut and applied for registration of their marriage before the Registrar of Marriages, Meerut on the same day.

The woman said she adopted the Hindu religion and Hindu name Yati in place of her native name Kahkasha, after marriage.

However, their marriage has not been registered till date. The petition stated that the father of Yati is greatly annoyed with the marriage and has threatened the petitioners with death.

“The petitioners have moved the local police, requesting them to save their life. It is further averred that the marriage between parties has met with disapproval of fourth respondent on account of the difference in their religion and the petitioners are required to be protected,” said the plea.

“Until further orders of the Court, the Senior Superintendent of Police, Meerut is ordered to extend and provide necessary protection to the life and limb of the petitioners and ensure that no harm comes to them at the hands of respondents, or any member of the first Petitioner’s family or her native community”, the Court ordered.

The Court further provided that the Senior Superintendent of Police, Meerut shall also ensure that the local Police do not interfere in the peaceful married life of the petitioners acting at the instance of the respondents, though it shall be their duty to see that no physical harm comes to the petitioners.

“The respondents is ordered not to enter the petitioners’ house, either himself or through his friends, agents, associates, or approach the petitioners through any electronic means of communication, or to cause the petitioners any bodily harm or injury, in any manner whatsoever”, the Court said and fixed the next hearing on June 23.
