The petition has been filed by Advocate Aldanish Rein. He is aggrieved by the fact that with the passing of the impugned order, the Allahabad High Court has not only left the couple at the mercy of their offending families hate monger religious associations but has also laid a wrong precedent that inter-religious marriages cannot be solemnized at the instance of conversion of religion by either of the partner. Relying upon the Supreme Court’s verdict in Lily Thomas v. Union of India, in which it was observed that if the person feigns to have adopted another religion just for some worldly gain or benefit, it would be religious bigotry, the Allahabad High Court had last month denied police to a married couple. ‘Religious Conversion Just For The Purpose Of Marriage Is Unacceptable’: Allahabad High Court Dismisses Plea Of Married Couple Stating that the High Court has proceeded on an “incorrect interpretation” of this judgment, the Petitioner has submitted, “The Constitution of India provides for right to freedom of religion and the same includes that a person has the right to choose and profess any religion or no religion at all. It also includes the right to convert into any religion as many times as one wants to with no tabs. Choice of religion is a personal choice of a person. If the Court does not allow a person to freely choose his religion, it amounts to a violation of his or her fundamental right as guaranteed under the Constitution of India.” He has submitted that the Judgment does not mean that conversion for the sake of marriage is a worldly gain or benefit; rather it only means that such conversions shall not be for the purposes of exploitation and only exploitation is connoted as “worldly gain or benefit”. “When two adults of different religion, fall in love with each other and decides to get married to each other against the wishes of their parents / society / religious leaders etc. it cannot be termed as an exploitation if they wish to convert to the religion of their partner and get married. The law and the courts could only interfere if there is a direct exploitation being caused to any third person…,” the plea states. Significantly, both the Petitioner and his sister (presently the Joint Treasurer of SCBA) are Muslims by religion and have married their respective Hindu Spouse under the Special Marriage Act, 1954. He has submitted that he has witnessed the “cumbersome process” and “unreasonable provisions” of the Special Marriage Act, which makes it very difficult for a runaway couple to abide by the said provisions— resulting in religious marriages after conversion to the faith of either of the partner. He has stated that practically, the Special Marriage Act is only meant for couples where both the families are in agreement of such marriages or at least are not out there to harm the couple. This is because the Act mandates a notice period and invites objections to such notice, making it difficult for runaway couples. Citing the process given under Sections 5, 6, 7 and 11 of the Act, the Petitioner submitted, “So the runaway couple cannot just apply with any marriage officer, either of them have to be a resident of the same jurisdiction for atleast 30 days prior to applying and in order to prove the same, they would have to show some proof, such as a rent agreement etc. which is difficult for a runaway couple. It is not just open to the family members to object but to any member of the society, and the objector has been given 30 days to object and the G couple has to wait for these thirty days. The Couple also has to arrange for three witnesses in the hostile world that they are already in.” The Petitioner has relied on the observations made Justice DY Chandrachud in Hadiya’s case, reiterated thus: “The law prescribes conditions for a valid marriage. It provides remedies when relationships run aground. Neither the State nor the law can dictate a choice of partners or limit the free ability of every person to decide on these matters. They form the essence of personal liberty under the Constitution.” He has therefore urged the Court to invoke Article 142 of the Constitution of India to set aside the impugned order of the Allahabad High Court, and provide immediate police protection to the concerned couple. It is further sought that all the matters pending in various High Courts challenging provisions of the Special Marriage Act 1954 should be transferred to the Supreme Court and adjudicated so as to bring uniformity in the Act for the entire Country. In the alternate it is prayed that a committee be formed to be presided over by a retired Supreme Court Judge to ascertain and recommend appropriate amendments in the Special Marriage Act, 1954 for its effective implementation.Next Storylast_img read more

Newly-minted conference champions set up ultimate goal

first_imgMEGHAN CONLIN/Herald photoThe painful memory of last year’s loss in the WCHA finals still lingers for the Wisconsin women’s hockey team. After battling back from two goals down late in the third period, the miracle was not to be completed, as Minnesota struck first in the extra frame.This year, however, things look a little bit different for the Badgers. It is No. 3-ranked Wisconsin (25-4-1, 20-3-1 WCHA), not Minnesota, who has dominated the standings this season, and it is UW that has clinched its first-ever conference title.While most assumed it would take a sweep for the Badgers to wrap up the WCHA this past weekend, Wisconsin got some help from an unexpected source late Saturday as North Dakota upset Duluth 2-0, giving the Badgers the title.”Well, it was a little bit of surprise that it happened the way it did,” UW head coach Mark Johnson said. “I was very happy with the way we competed and played to win the game against Minnesota, but the unexpected came after the game when we heard about Duluth and I don’t think anyone anticipated Duluth losing. But it was a pleasant surprise that luck worked out for us and things fell into place.”With the title in hand and just four regular season games remaining, the Badgers will look to tie up any remaining loose ends as they head into the postseason. While one would be hard-pressed to find areas of weakness on this highly-talented team, the Badgers have split their last two series while experiencing some inconsistency on the power play.”We’ve been getting a lot of chances, but it’s about execution and we haven’t been executing,” assistant captain Sara Bauer said. “We’re going to try approaching certainthings from a different angle and see if we can generate some goals that way.”Johnson also expressed concern for his squad’s special teams.”At certain times of the game, the power play is very important. I think Friday night, we had three power plays in the first period, and if we score on one of those, it can make a big difference,” Johnson said. “As many coaches will say around this time of year, special teams are very important, and obviously our power play has to be working for us to be successful.”We’ll continue to work on it and tweak it and hopefully get some timely goals.”While the power play has been inconsistent at times, the same cannot be said about the superb goaltending the Badgers have received all season long. The tag team of Christine Dufour and Meghan Horras has changed to a three-headed monster with the recent contributions of redshirt freshman Jessie Vetter.Vetter got the nod against Minnesota Saturday and received WCHA Rookie of the Week honors for her efforts. Vetter, making her first start against a ranked opponent, stopped all but one of the Gophers’ 25 shots en route to the WCHA title.”Well, they’ll all be in the mix, but we’re in position right now with four regular season games left that hopefully they’ll all get an opportunity to play in one of those four games,” Johnson said. “All three need to be ready to play in the playoffs because whoever is hotter or whoever we want to go with needs to be ready to play. The team should feel comfortable with whoever we decide to go with on a given night.”Conventional wisdom would say to rest up before these essentially meaningless games, but players and coaches alike know that they cannot afford to change the routine that has made them so successful thus far. As the Badgers face off against WCHA counterpart Minnesota State this weekend, they are expected to show the same level of intensity that has been exhibited all season long.”We need to make sure we’re coming out with good intensity every night, because soon we’re going to get in situations where one game is your only chance,” Bauer said. “We remember what happened last year, and we need to bring our highest level of intensity every night.”last_img read more
