New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday observed that there is no way the state can prohibit an inter-faith couple from marrying while dealing with the petition of two inter-faith foreign nationals seeking registration of their marriage under Indian law.

Justice Yashwant Verma was hearing a plea moved by the couple to solemnize and register their marriage under the Special Marriage Act, 1954, as they wanted to keep their faith.

The woman is a Canadian citizen and Hindu by religion and the man is an American citizen and Christian.

Advocate Rishabh Kapur, representing the couple, submitted that it is only under the Special Marriage Act that a foreign interfaith couple can seek solemnization and registration of their marriage to uphold their faith, expressing apprehension that other domestic laws prohibit their marriage, Justice Verma said. Verbatim commented: “There is no way the state can prohibit an interfaith couple from marrying.”

Further indicating the response of the parties including the state in this regard, the court fixed December 15 as the next date of hearing.
