Maharashtra sets up panel to monitor inter-faith marriages

Vivid News 24: The Maharashtra government has established a committee to collect data on couples who marry outside their caste or religion as well as any alienated maternal families of the women.

State Women and Child Development Minister Mangal Prabhat Lodha would serve as the chair of the “Intercaste/Interfaith marriage-family coordination committee (state level),” according to the Government Resolution (GR) released on Tuesday by the department.

According to the statement, the committee will keep an eye on district-level programs for women who may be separated from their families due to such weddings so that assistance can be given as needed.

According to the GR, the committee will provide a forum for women and their families to seek counseling and find solutions to problems. The panel, which will include 13 members from the public and private sectors, will analyze state and federal policies addressing assistance programs and relevant regulations.

The committee will regularly meet with district officials to gather data on recognized and unregistered interfaith and Intercaste unions, as well as unions that occurred after elopements and unions that occurred in places of religion.

Mr. Lodha requested last month that a special squad be formed by the State Women’s Commission to track down women who got married without the consent of their families and are now separated from them. The murder of Shraddha Walker served as the inspiration for this choice.

In Delhi in May of this year, Shraddha Walker was allegedly murdered by her live-in partner Aaftab Poonawala. Poonawala is accused of strangling Shraddha and chopping her body into 35 pieces, which he allegedly kept in a 300-liter refrigerator at his home in Mehrauli, south Delhi, for about three weeks before disposing of them over the course of several days.

Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, recently stated that his government will investigate laws on religious freedom, known as “love jihad” legislation, passed by other states but had not yet made a decision to establish a similar law in the western state.

Right-wing extremists frequently refer to Muslim men’s alleged scheme to seduce Hindu women into marrying into their religion as “love jihad” to support their claims.
