In Uttar Pradesh, two incidents have emerged wherein Muslim girls have embraced Hindu Dharma and married their Hindu boyfriends. In both cases, the Muslim girl’s family was opposed to their relationship with Hindu men and was adamant about marrying off their daughters to Muslim men. The first matter pertains to Sitapur and the second to the Bahraich district of Uttar Pradesh.
Reportedly, Rubia, a Bisesar resident in Rampur Mathura police station precinct in Sitapur has been in a relationship with Pradeep Yadav. Pradeep Yadav is a resident of Meudi Sevaliya of the Thana Gaon police station precinct. Upon learning that Rubia’s family is opposed to her union with Pradeep, several Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) members arrived at her village along with the police and got the duo married according to the Hindu rituals at a temple. Rubia changed her name to Rajni. Acharya Deepak Mishra, the VHP’s Dharmacharya leader, blessed the newly married couple with an idyllic married life. On the other hand, the girl’s family has severed all ties with her.
Vipul Pratap Singh, Department President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Awadh Province, stated that the couple loves each other and wanted to tie the knot. However, the girl’s family was pressuring her to have nikah with another man. Both of them were married according to Hindu rituals with the assistance of the police.
