The Delhi HC directed Delhi Police to provide protection to woman converted to Islam. The petitioner seeks direction against the Jamia Nagar SHO, Delhi govt, UP govt and the DGP of Uttar Pradesh after her family complained threat by state officials media, persons and vigilante groups.
The woman said she wants to marry her Muslim friend but her family wants to marry her off to another Hindu man. The Delhi High Court issued notice to the Delhi Government, the Commissioner of Police, and the concerned SHO. She wanted protection from her parents as she feared she maybe killed by them.
It is further clarified that the fact of the petitioner having converted to Islam would not be a relevant factor while ensuring that there is no interference in the liberty of the petitioners unless there is any allegation by petitioner no.1 regarding forcible conversion.
The Delhi High Court has said, in crimes which seriously endangers the well being of society, it is not safe to leave the crime doer only because he and victim have settled the dispute amicably, while dismissing petition seeking quashing of FIR by a Muslim man who married a Hindu woman allegedly hiding his real identity.
