bigamy under the shelter of false “conversion” continue unabated Related News Ever heard of a Hindu religious leader or politician protesting against the practice of married men within their community deceitfully becoming “Muslims” to be able to wed again Those raising the bogey of “love jihad” should put their own house in order before raising a hue and cry at Cupid-stricken unmarried girls and boys who dare go for inter-religious marriages that are absolutely valid under the country’s Constitution and law On February 27 1978 Jitender Mathur married Meena Kumari and over the next decade she bore him three children Then in January 1988 Jitender secretly married one Sunita Narula To facilitate the second marriage both he and Sunita quietly “converted” to Islam under the mistaken belief wholly unwarranted under true Islamic law that this would give him a licence to indulge in bigamy and escape the anti-bigamy provisions of the Indian Penal Code Within four months Jitender “reconverted” to Hinduism and returned to his first wife Sunita later bore him a child and had to turn to the court to secure subsistence for her newborn In a second case in November 1988 Pradeep Kumar married Geeta Rani Three years later he eloped with Deepa Both he and Deepa “converted” to Islam and instantaneously became husband and wife through nikah In a third case one GC Ghosh married Sushmita in May 1984 Eight years later he decided to marry Vanita Gupta To avoid prosecution for bigamy he too announced conversion to Islam These are not fairy tales or hearsay but legally proven facts recorded in Sarla Mudgal vs Union of India decided by the Supreme Court in May 1995 All three women involved in these cases had approached various lower courts for relief Meena and Geeta had discovered the facts after their husbands’ second marriages and wanted them to be declared null and void Sushmita on the other hand had learned of her husband’s intentions beforehand and sought a court order restraining him from marrying again Unsatisfied by the judicial verdicts up to the high court level all three along with a social welfare organisation appealed for justice to the apex court The SC decided that Jitender’s marriage to Sunita and Pradeep’s to Deepa were illegal and constituted an offence punishable under the provisions of the IPC On Sushmita’s plea the court’s verdict was that despite his pretend “conversion” to Islam her husband could not marry again without legally dissolving his marriage to her and that if he did the second marriage would be void and penal The ruling conformed to Islamic teachings Embracing Islam for the sake of marriage is the worst form of munafiqat (hypocrisy) and violates the Prophet’s edict that “intention is decisive for judging the validity of every action” Ghosh then mustered the support of some Muslim religious bodies by assuring them that his conversion was “genuine” and truly for the love of Islam With them he approached the SC for a revision of its Sarla Mudgal ruling on the ground that it adversely affected the citizen’s fundamental right to freedom of religion The court only reaffirmed in Lily Thomas vs Union of India that the Sarla Mudgal judgment held and that all cases of bigamy through the conversion route would entail penal consequences Meena Geeta and Sushmita were not the first to be treated badly by their husbands The Hindu Marriage Act prohibited bigamy in 1955 which Hindu religious law did not and made the IPC provision on anti-bigamy applicable to Hindus Ever since married men covered by the act have been fraudulently “converting” to Islam under a mistaken belief that this would rescue them from the penalties prescribed by law The SC rulings in Sarla Mudgal and Lily Thomas have not stopped the horrendous practice of married men committing fraud Cases of bigamy under the shelter of false “conversion” continue unabated The law laid down by the court continues to be shamelessly violated even by lawyers and state dignitaries The 2008 case of a deputy chief minister of Haryana Chander Mohan duping his Hindu wife to marry his assistant advocate general Anuradha Bali — with both “converting” to Islam and becoming “Chand Mohammad” and “Fiza” — is still in the public consciousness In this case while Chand Mohammad soon returned to being Chander Mohan and to his first wife Anuradha alias Fiza apparently committed suicide While the practice of married men wedding again under the camouflage of conversion is punishable under Indian law conversion is legally quite unnecessary for unmarried boys and girls of different faiths wishing to inter-marry We do have a law for civil marriage under which two persons following different religions can become husband and wife without hindrance Conversion must be discouraged in cases when a person converts not voluntarily but to satisfy religious-minded and tradition-bound parents The writer is a former chair of the

significant takeaway from the recent assembly elections Democratic elections serve an unmistakable purpose: to allow voters to reflect on the performance of their government and decide whether to welcome it back or toss it by the wayside In the recent state electionsvoters utilised the ballot box to both ends In Delhi and Rajasthanvoters dismissed incumbent governmentswhile in Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradeshthey embraced them In all four statesthe BJP emerged as the largest beneficiary What lessons do these disparate elections impart For startersthe metaphor of these state elections as a semi-final for the 2014 general election is inaccurate The four states are not a representative sample of India at large If BJP partisans had been given a choice of where to hold elections this winterthey would have strained to come up with a more ideal set: four states in the Hindi heartland in which there is a two-way contest between the BJP and the bruised and battered Congress party (Delhiof courseproving a belated and unexpected exception) This twist of fate was a boon for the BJP Imagine the commentary today if elections had instead been held in West BengalTamil NaduAndhra Pradesh and Kerala Stillthe BJPs strong showing gives it unquestionable momentum heading into next years main event After allstate election cycles provide the context in which national elections take place In every state nine in total that held assembly elections immediately prior to national elections in both 2004 and 2009the party that won the largest share of seats in the state elections also won the largest share in the national elections With 72 parliamentary seats on the line in these four statesthis is nothing to sneeze at The precise contribution of Narendra Modi to the BJPs cause will receive scrutiny in the days to come Post-poll surveys from the CSDS indicate that local factorsnot Modidominated Neverthelessthe Gujarat leader will receiveand understandably acceptthe credit for these victories In all four statesModi was the voters most popular choice for prime minister by a significant margin And when voters were explicitly asked to choose between Modi and Rahul Gandhi for the top joban even larger share of voters chose the former Suffice to say that these elections represent a critical juncture for the PM aspirant Finallyafter several false startsModi can associate himself with a set of clear victories in states other than his own Indeedthe partys defeat in their lone southern bastion of Karnataka in Maywith Modi engaged as lead campaignerhad caused some consternation in BJP circles The latest victories will allow Modi to consolidate his power within the BJP Trueboth Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Raman Singh now join Modi in the pantheon of three-time election winners; collectively the three men have run their states for a total of 30 years StillModi remains in a class of his owngiven that both Hindi heartland leaders are victims of the vagaries of the electoral calendar At this late datethere is little manoeuvring room for rivals to take Modi down a rung Such machinations will have to wait until after national pollsif and when the BJP struggles to cobble together a coalition And what of the Congress These elections serve to underscore the issue of the partys leadershipan affliction plaguing both its central and state units With the exception
