NEWS: Allahabad HC Says Nobody is Entitled to Interfere in the Peaceful Life of two Adults

By Legal Wires 2 Minutes Read

Justice Saral Srivastava reiterated that nobody is entitled to interfere with the peaceful lives of two adults who were living together.

“The Court has repeatedly held that where the two individuals having attained the age of majority, are living together, nobody is entitled to interfere in their peaceful life.”

In this case, a Hindu woman had converted to Islam prior to her marriage to a Muslim man. The couple approached the High Court stating that they were being harassed by family members.

The Court opined that no one can interfere with the lives of two adult individuals who have decided to live together, while directing that police protection be granted, if necessary, to a couple that had married across religions.

The High Court granted relief to the couple by relying upon the dictum of Supreme Court in Bhagwan Dass v. State (NCT of Delhi), wherein the top court made strong observations against honor killings, terming that it is “time to stamp out these barbaric, feudal practices which are a slur on our nation.”

Therefore the Court directed the police to provide necessary protection to the couple and directed the husband to create a fixed deposit of ₹3 lakhs in favour of his wife by the next date of hearing on February 2, 2021.
