What Hindu Girls Thinks before Marrying a Muslim?

luckyblogger says: February 19, 2018 at 8:42 am

I have a friend who is a sikh by birth and was in relationship with a Muslim guy. the girl is so caring while the boy is like if she marries its cool if not fine.

The girl seems to hate Sikh traditions weddings which was very surprising for me

Later she married him we did not know if she converted

However, we saw her avoiding all pujas and also she was talking against Hindu customs a lot.

Now they are both educated couple living abroad.
The thing is her family and his family are not accepting even though we think she converted

to guys family, “Girl looks old and too fat, our son could have married much prettier gal” and the girls family of course” we trusted our daughter to study and this is what she did”.

They are happy but the girl has denied staying with his family as she is open minded, wears and eats what she likes and his family is a typical Muslim family.

Its sad that now she has no where to go to india. She cant visit her family as its a shame for them and her husband as its too old fashioned for her.

I want to know do Hindu girls think about family of the guy before falling in love or at least before marrying? –LB

Chinese Buddhist with Indonesian Muslim in Malaysia

Richard says: February 16, 2018 at 10:38 am
Dear humano,

Hope I’m not too late for asking this from you based on what you had gone through and shared with us.

I’m currently having the same situation with which you had. I’m a Malaysian Chinese Buddhist while my dearest is a Indonesian Muslim. We fall in love with each other deeply. Both of us respects each other’s religion and we would like to settle down in Malaysia. Problem is I’m unable to convert to Muslim due to issue with my own family.

We feels each of us are irreplaceable and we would like to find out what options are available for us, in order for us to be able to living in Malaysia.

Thank you.
-Richard

Dear admin,

Thanks for the advises given, I’ve been reading much of your replied to others who seek for advises and really appreciate what you’ve been done so far.

There’s something to share with you and anyone who would like to know about this, which I found it is very curious and I would like to find out. 2 days ago I come across to a person who is a Indonesian Muslim girl where she had the same experience about 4 years ago, with her lover which is a Malaysian chinese (Buddhist).

According to her own experience, because both of them are from different country and religion, they were being told that they are allow to convert to each other’s religion from JPN (Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara). Which means it is either the Chinese Buddhist guy convert to Muslim or the Indonesian Muslim girl convert to Buddhist. However, sadly for them they didn’t proceed to marry at the end due to their family strongly against it on different culture.

But from my side, I can see some light and hope. Provided I need to discuss about this deeply with her and her family and my family as well about this. Myself have no issue with her to continue practicing Islam eventhough she had converted to Buddhist later (if she is ok with it). I don’t even mind our future children to be Muslim too. I respect her and her religion. However in order for us to get marry and settle down in Malaysia, as of now this is the only way I could find.

Any comment and thoughts from admin or anyone who experienced the same would be much appreciated. Thank you. -Richard

Religion and Marriage

antony says: February 15, 2018 at 3:32 am

I am 49 years old and based on my experience in life i am posting this comment.

All religions are man made. If there is God he/she is common to all. So do not think about religion. Peoples will create problems based on religion.

For survival you or he have/has to work and earn money. Better you can marry him.

Do not ask pastor/priest, they will confuse you. If you ask money to them they will fly away.

If your mind is saying ok then no problem. Do not take decision to satisfy others. This is not a sin.

Many marriages are happening in churches and temples. Some of them are divorced. why? Their mind in not united.

Any how you should be very careful about your life. If any problem arises nobody will help you.

For man/woman survival religion and caste are not required. Some body is earning money through religion and caste.

Only good heart id required for peaceful life. You don not understand now what i am saying.

We Need to Present to Our Parents

Ashwal says: February 14, 2018 at 2:54 am

Dear Shanu and Ambily Shanu,

I felt of you after reading your story.
Am in the similar case as you both had. We are from Kerala. We are still in relation since 8 years. Now its the time for Action. She is working in Bangalore and am settled in UAE. Now the issue is we need to get married and after our marriage, we need to present this issue to our parents as you had done. But for conducting the marriage under special marriage act from Bangalore. But we heard that for Special Marriage Act, a letter will be sent to our parents or the Register marriage office in our native. Now we are searching for a solution to get married without informing out parents and inform them once after the registration is done. If we don’t do this her family might House Arrest her and will try all the way to separate us. We need to live together somehow… Same as in your case both of us doesn’t want to get converted. Can you suggest us some way to conduct the Marriage?

I am a Muslim and She is Hindu. No, my parents will accept only if she gets converted with the permission of her parents and which is not going to happen. Anyways I cannot dump the girl. We want to live together.-Ashwal

Hindu Lawyer: I Love a Muslim Girl

Human being says: January 27, 2018 at 6:22 am

How about all of us just follow humanity which I believe is the core of every religion and let the Special Marriage Act do the talking? I love a muslim girl and Im going to marry her, not in mandir not in masjid but in court of law. If any of thw family member cant accept this simple truth thats their loss.Regarding hell and heaven how many of you have seen it with your eyes? So you are ready to regret all your life for something you have not seen actually? And society and neighbours and those uncles and aunties and dadas and dadis? 20 years down the line they will die! Open up your eyes people, love itself is a religion. Believe in it and you need nothing else. Religion never was the problem to any marriage, I am a lawyer, have not seen a divorce due to “cultural” differences ever. -HB

Hindu: I want to convert to Islam

Krina says: January 21, 2018 at 11:52 pm

i am hindu girl. i want to convert to islam because i love muslim guy last 8 years. how to convert muslim? My parents are willing to accept me become Muslim because they have accepted my love. -Krina

Admin says:

It is good that you got inspiration from God to reach to Him. This is good news. It is critical that you make fully informed decision for your ever lasting and happy married life.

In Islam there is no compulsion. It is important that you make the decision to convert to Islam with your own wish and not with pressure from someone. Further, make sure you are not taking this step with some hidden selfish objective other than true faith in Allah.

Please answer some of these questions first to evaluate your objective to convert:
• Is your sole objective to convert to Islam–the boy you are in love with?
• If you were in love with a Sikh or Christian, still you would convert to Islam?
• After conversion, for what ever reason, if your boy friend decides not to marry you, are you still willing to remain a Muslim?
• Have you read the Koran (do you know these)?
• Have you lived the life of a Muslim for at least a few months?
• Are you ready to give up your current religion 100% and be a true Muslim 100%?
• Do you believe murtis of Lord Krishna and Rama are nothing but an idol and should be dispose off in garbage?
• Lets assume you get a talaak from this planned marriage, are you willing still to remain 100% Muslim? Even after talaak, are you willing to marry only a Muslim next time and not to a person of any other faith (as required in Islam)? After the talaak, where will you go and live with (we hope not your Hindu parents)?
• Are you sure that you will never ever think of converting out of Islam? You have to know that conversion to Islam is a one-way street. Muhammad said who ever convert out of Islam should be killed (Bukhari 9.84.57). For this reason, Muslims takes conversion out of Islam very seriously (called apostacy and with serious consequences).
• Have you talk to your boy friends’ Muslim parents about your wish to be their son or daughter in law? We highly recommend you to go and spend a few Week with them to know each other fully before committing to this marriage. To your original question, “how to convert”, their imam will convert you before their Islamic Nikaah wedding.
• Along with conversion, there are many living practices of Muslims. Are you willing to enjoy that life style? Some of them include eating cow (beef), never to worship any idol, namaz five times a day, wear burka for women (no jeans), polygamy (multiple marriages for a man), no sports, alcohol, dancing, or listening to Bollywood music for women, and many more (read these). Are you ready to live a different life? Have you stated practicing this now life now?

Please get back and we will discuss more here. Our Muslim advisors (referene) will correct us here if we made any mistake and we will update it here.

We want you to be happy in your planned married life and hope this information will lead you to that objective. We wish you nothing but the best in life. Good luck! -Admin

Jain-Hindu Marriage: Parents are Trying to Divorce Us!

Akash says: January 22, 2018 at 12:12 pm

I see a lot of people are suffering from this jain rigidity like me. Well m already married to a jain girl and she is at her parents home. After marriage I told her to inform her parents about us but because of ‘pajyushan’ she didnt agreed. Meanwhile, I got an opportunity to study in UK and I told her not to tell her parents by herself. But because she was being forced to see other guys she told her parents about our marriage by herself. Now her parents are trying to get us divorced.

I came to India during my vacations and tried to convince them as my girl wanted, but they are not agreeing. So now its time to go back to continue my course. I am screwed between career n personal life as my dad is retired doctor and alot has been already invested on my studies. M a double MBA and have a good background. But just because of their ego my in-laws are not accepting our marriage. Any suggestions what should I do? -Prakash

Questions regarding Interfaith Marriages

Students of Faculty of Social Work, The M.S. University of Baroda, India raised these questions to Dr. Dilip Amin (admin) for the presentation (Part I and Part II) on January 10, 2018. Share your views below.

1. Is it confusing or irresponsible to tell a young child that they can make up their own mind about which of their parents’ religion they should follow?
No, it should not. Just teach that this is what mom’s belief and this is what is pappa’s belief about God. Let the interfaith child make his or her own decision about faith as an adult.

2. The older you are, the more likely you are to marry outside of the faith. Is it true?
No. However, young adult around 20s may make more impractical decisions relating to life partner compared to someone 25+.

3. How important is religion? Is happiness interrelated to religion one marries in?
This depends on an individual. If one is very religious, then that person should not bother marrying out of faith. Marriage itself is complex and difficult to maintain with happiness. Interfaith issues will add more problems to already complex married life. However, if spouses are open minded and adaptable, successful interfaith marriage is possible.

4. Are interfaith marriages on the rise due to the decreased practice of religion?
Yes. Liberty, freedom and financial independence give youths strength to make decisions against norms.

5. It is quite probable that couple will experience a loss of family and friends. How to deal with this sort of situation?
Yes, this is very likely. This has to be discussed and partly experience before getting married. It is a good idea to meet two sets of parents frequently before marriage. If two sets of parents cannot sit in one room more than one hour, big trouble is immanent.

6. One serious challenge for interfaith couple is that of conversion. How far this is acceptable and why should s/he be changed if you love them?
You have already answered by saying, “why should s/he be changed if you love them?” “Conversion for marriage” practice is wrong and should end (and now!).

7. Is it the sign of societal progress or cultural degeneration?
Both. Like it or not, interfaith marriages will increase.

8. Is couple in same faith marriage more happy because they have less time quarrelling on whom to pray before when in time of crisis?
Very true that within faith couples have less of “faith-related” issues. However, within faith marriages have different set of issues (read my article “Meera Verses Margaret.”) In Indian culture, within faith marriages have more issues relating to in-laws. In interfaith marriages, the in-laws “give up” after a year or so, so rest may go okay.

9. Are divorce rates higher in interfaith marriage because it lacks family support?
Yes, however, now, even within faith marriage divorce rates are increasing. Best is to critically evaluate the intended spouse and family before getting married, interfaith or within faith. Make the decision to marry with mind and not heart.

10. Although many faiths cants agree on anything, they all surprisingly agree that the idea of an interfaith marriage is a bad idea. Is interfaith marriage good way to end communal wars?
Yes, provided no conversion is involved and there is true “sharing” and “respecting” of two faiths. The conversion practice for marriage will increase communal wars.

11. The couples under interfaith marriage have many types of social problems. What is the solution?
a. Pluralism (verses exclusivism).
b. Best is to understand each other’s faiths and find common ground before the marriage. Also keep the church, imam and pandit away from your married life. Make decisions that are rational and well thought out, and certainly not under pressure from religious institutions.
c. Be financially independent (and not count on parents for money). This will give the couple strength to do that is right and just.

12. How they decide that what type of marriage and rituals to be followed and how the decision is made?
This is a very difficult question for the couple to deal with. Unfortunately the most religious fanatic wins!

13. What are some of the probable solutions to deal with problem in interfaith marriage?
Education (read my book!)
No BBS (no religious exclusivism)
Discuss issues up front before marriage. Make decision like you would do for a business deal, don’t make decisions out of emotion or under pressure.

14. Was it the own decision to go for interfaith marriage?
Of course, the couple decides and against wishes of parents, imam/priest/pandits.

15. Does family and friends support them in good and bad times after marriage?
No, don’t count on any one. This is your decision and be ready face the consequences. It is a good idea to get buy-in from two sets of parents before the engagement. Involve parents sooner than later.

16. Are the children from such marriage affected by either sides of family behaviour?
Always.

17. Does such kind of marriage affect the workplace also?
Unhappy marriage will reduce one’s productivity at work, irrespective if that is within or interfaith marriage.

18. How such marriage helps one to grow as individual?
Interfaith couples, where there is no conversion, are open minded for faiths and are progressive thinkers. Important is to have a happy married life to grow as an individual, irrespective if that is within or interfaith marriage.

19. Would you recommend interfaith marriage to friends and family members?
I am not for or against interfaith marriage; as far as the decision is made with full knowledge. There should be minimal faith related surprises in life after the interfaith marriage.

20. Which are the things that affect the most in interfaith marriage?
Of course, the faith!
Family and friends
Culture
Food habits
Holidays and festivals
Issues goes on even after one’s death (which rite to perform?)

21. How important the religion is and how they celebrate the festive with family?
Ideally, there are two sets of festivals and food to enjoy. In reality, holidays bring anxiety to the interfaith married couple. Many times it is difficult to find a middle ground. If two sets of parents are pressuring the couple, best options is to move out of town and live 100 km away from any parent.

22. What kind of people generally oppose/against the interfaith marriage?
Most people will oppose except your college friends and rare few relatives. Your parents/pandits/imam/priest/religious institution will bring plenty of pain and suffering for you. Do not expect interfaith married life as a rose-garden, even roses have thorns!

23. What kind of compromise one has to made in an interfaith marriage?
Compromises has to be made in all respects, including teachings from your scriptures and religious leaders. One has to be prepared to rewrite your religion (take the best from both faiths and leave the rest for others). However the later is easy to say but difficult to put in practice.

24. What are the precautionary measures one has to keep in mind before interfaith marriage?
The list is endless but most important is—make sure your intended spouse and his/her parents are progressive thinkers and adaptive. Run away from the relationship if there is any expectation of religious conversion or any type of religious labeling (BBS) on the interfaith children.

Jamie says: January 3, 2018 at 2:55 pm
Hi Amita,

I come from a very strong Christian Malayalee family and my boyfriend of almost 2 years, from a strong Hindu, Gujarati family. We are both incredibly serious about each other, and both our families are accepting of our relationship, as long as we are able to make compromises and understand each other- neither myself nor my boyfriend believe in divorce as a viable option so we have a lot of work to do.

I have always considered my faith to be very strong, however after college I had some issues with the exclusivity of my faith, even before meeting my current boyfriend. I couldn’t (and still can’t) understand how my religion teaches that Jesus is the only way. What about my close friends who are amazing, giving, GOOD people who were raised Hindu? If I had been raised in a Hindu family myself, I would also be a very devout Hindu, I’m sure. I don’t believe that Gandhi went to hell. I am also under a similar impression that most faith stories have the same principles and morals, and I cannot see any problem with the belief that there is one God (as all monotheistic religions including Hinduism preach) that we as human beings have multiple names for.

There is still a lot to discuss in our relationship, including the fact that I eat everything, and my boyfriend is strongly vegetarian who would want me to eventually give up eating meat. He comes to church with me (I rarely miss a week) on occasion, and though he doesn’t go to the temple himself often, I would go with him anytime. He went to Christian grade school growing up which helps in his Biblical knowledge, and similarly I am teaching myself about what he believes, including researching the Gita. We both have strong respect for each others’ religions and each want to learn how best to incorporate both into the lives of our children, if we should work out.

Something that is a big hindrance to me is the concept of rebirth. I grew up with the concept of hell vs. heaven, while Hinduism, as my boyfriend interprets to me, teaches of having many lives each existing as basically multiple attempts at achieving perfection. Amita, how do you tackle the afterlife? –Jamie

Hindu Brahmin with Pakistani in Istanbul

Indra says: December 31, 2017 at 12:06 pm

I’m a Hindu Brahmin man of age 35. Currently living in Istanbul, Turkey. I am in a similar boat as the OP. In fact, this is a Dharam Sankat.

I met this Pakistani girl from Punjab province 1 year ago. We felt instantly attracted to each other and have been inseparable ever since. I do have a strong affection for her but I always wanted her to find another man who shares her Islamic religious beliefs. She said though she doesn’t want anyone else except me. I spoke to her mother and she is feeling very excited for her daughter to marry a Brahmin someday. According to her, Brahmins treat women very nicely so has already given her blessings. Her Pakistani father used to be an abusive person but has always spoken nicely to me on phone. I’m not going to travel to Pakistan to find out more about her family though. Far too risky. Her family has no expectation for me to convert to Islam. I have deep respect for Islam, and Muslim cultures. But, I’m also very strongly attached to my own religion. So, if they put any proposal for conversion, I will refuse instantly. Bottomline, my religious beliefs are really of no concern to them.

Thing is I haven’t mentioned her to my family at all because they’re deeply orthodox Hindu Brahmins. I am a Janeudhari and still chant the Gayatri Mantra daily. So, the girl’s family knows everything about me. But, my family knows nothing about the girl.

We’ve come too far. On one hand, I don’t want to break the heart of this girl, and her mother who has high hopes of me. But I’m myself not sure even now. How are we supposed to raise our kids? If she were an Indian Muslim, somehow I could have reconciled my family with her. But, she happens to be Pakistani. If my family hears about this relationship, they’re going to completely freak out.

I know I should have thought of all this before entering into this relationship. I’m still wanting this girl to lose interest in me but she won’t.

On the plus side, she is very nice to me, and will definitely make a good wife. I know we’re all human beings and religions are man-made. The same God created all of us. Should I just convert her to Hinduism in Arya Samaj (at least, nominally) so that my family and society can accept her better?

How does Indian government view Indian men bringing Pakistani brides home? Do they issue visas without any hassles? Will this girl be able to live in India with me peacefully without harassment?

Indian Muslim with a Malaysian Christian Girl

I’m an Indian Muslim man. And I’m in love with a Malaysian Christian girl. We are pretty serious about us as of now. In case our relationship is to progress onto marriage, are there any rules or laws which might block a marriage between Malaysian Christian girl and foreign Muslim man?

Keep the Religious Institutions Out and Let the Love Ride

Keep the Religious Institutions Out and Let the Love Ride INDIA ABROAD Letter, Dec 22, 2017

Satish Master in his letter (India Abroad; Dec. 8, 2017) expressed that phenomenon called love is more important and nothing else. However, I agree with the first part but would say one could gain the same “love” without submitting to irrational expectations from religious institutions.

In Jagdish Patel’s case (India Abroad; Oct. 13, 2017), the Mormon church will want conversion of his Hindu daughter for the marriage and keep Hindu parents from their own daughter’s church wedding.

Likewise here, Master failed to mention that along with attending Catholic marital counseling, the Hindu son had to sign a pre-nuptial agreement stating “my future spouse has promised to live out the Catholic faith as a practicing member of the Catholic church and raise our children in the faith of the Catholic church and I do not have opposition to this.” Why Master has no concern about giving up his Hindu heritage when other options were available? Alternatively, if the couple had intention of raising children as Hindu, why did the couple lie to the Catholic institution and signed one sided pre-nuptial?

From a Hindu, a Christian church will want baptism, Muslim imam will want Shahadah/Sunat and Jewish rabbi will want a bris or bar mitzvah for the interfaith marriage or promise to raise children in the respective Abrahamic faith only. It is time to take controls away from religious institutions and stop fake-conversions.

Interfaith married couples should have liberty to share two faiths in one marriage; that is not normally acceptable by Abrahamic institutions. Further, the couple should learn to respect each other’s faith and with equality.

It is high time to end the religious labeling practices and let the interfaith couple decide their own religious fate.
–Dilip Amin , the author of book–Interfaith Marriage: Share and Respect with Equality


Let’s Count the Benefits of Interreligious Marriages INDIA ABROAD Letter, Dec 8, 2017

What Vanamali Thotapalli (IA, Nov. 10) missed is a simple phenomenon called love. In this case, a parental love —father’s love for his daughter and a girl loving a boy. Jagdish Patel as a loving parent honors his daughter’s wish, who must have been blindly in love with her Mormon boyfriend/fiancé. Besides, Thotapalli did not have to resort to a stereotyped racial bias, further claiming his religion being superior. Our older son married a white, non-practicing Catholic who respected her mother’s will to have her marry in the church in which she grew up. So our son and his fiancée had to go through the Catholic marital counseling classes. Our son did not mind. On the contrary he enjoyed as the priest focused on the concept that woman should love and obey her husband.

Our second son married a non-practicing Mormon and they got married in a Buddhist abbey. We have three grandchildren between the two sons and neither skin color nor religion has ever been an issue in our family. We love and take care of our grandchildren and most importantly, we gained two daughters, making our daughter jealous.

If You are in LOVE, Just GO for it!

Sona says: December 11, 2017 at 1:32 am

Dude, are you serious? If you (Hindu girl) want to marry (to a Muslim) then go ahead and do it, why are you taking permission? The main question here is, are you truly in love with him? Will he pay back with same love you desire of him? It is your life, your choice, you are bound to nobody.

Your mom, dad will get convinced within time, you can not do it within one week, give them time to adjust.

Me and my boyfriend is dating for two years, and all my friend circle as well as my mom, dad knows it 😀

Remember, your life, your choice, your life does not belongs to anyone else, good luck. -Shona

Sona says: December 14, 2017 at 8:10 am
LMAO,thanks a ton for making me famous 😀

No no my status is completely different from these people. Both of our mom dad aware of our relation. I have never faced a problem.

I am a human, i am in love with another human, period.

Actually both of us have interfaith blood, i am quarter Muslim from my grandpa, my grandma came to India from Sweden after divorce with my dad. And my boyfriend is half Hindu from his mom.

We are so close i call aunty mom for fun 😀

My grandpa was Swedish Indian. My to be in law family is settled in Sweden. We will have typical Western style marriage and will live there.

Our guardians know about our relationship from very beginning, so we do not have to worry 😀

I wish all the best for the people here.

By the way that’s a lovely dp, sorry for downloading it without permission 😀 –Sona

He is Muslim Boy

Rekha says: November 30, 2017 at 2:10 am

hello

I have been reading interfaith experiences in internet lately. this is good to know someone of our own is helping people in this kind of situation. so i really appreciate and applaud your effort.

i hope i will not bother you asking your suggestion and guidance about my situation. i have been in love with a boy more than 5 years, which dates back to our late school time, basically we have been in same educational institution, my the feelings for him developed from that time. he is muslim boy. but his religious identity was never a problem for me. the feelings is completely one sided, he does not know anything about it.

But currently it has become a lot tense, you know the surrounding that is going on. but i believe the gap between us or the problems, whatever you term it, is rooted in financial condition. he is from lower middle class family and i am from businessman family background. so you can see the obvious difference. despite being popular among girls i observed he never opened up with girls before, and i staunchly believe it is only because his financial condition. and it is scaring me.

i have discussed this with my friends who is in far more intimate relationship rather than just being in love, but quite unfortunately i could not even tell him about the feelings i have for him for years, my friends i discussed with also agree it is the financial condition that will hunt us most, not the religious difference.

the primary reason i never told him that i love him is i can end up being the cause of harm for him, either it can be from my family or the other social people who has tendency in poking their nose in people’s personal matters or politicizing everything if they get to know it.

being quite honest, what i have observed from my friends and other case, the rich peoples are never in trouble, it really does not matter if it is interfaith or interracial.it only becomes problem for the poor people who can not fight back, become victim of these heinous actions of political goons.

my feelings for him is strong enough i can tell i will not accept another man in my life. heck i did not go to a better college outside of my home city just to be in same college with him, despite having little to no interest in teacher’s bakbak i was one of the most regular student in college. it is just gives me a different comfort being around him or having him in my eyesight. so i am asking you to guide me in this matter, how do you think i can convince my parents that i have no problem with his family or economical condition without letting them react aggressively or causing any harm to him. -Rekha

Demanding Someone to Convert for Marriage is Wrong

Amit says: November 29, 2017 at 8:07 pm

I am hindu and my wife is from a muslim religion. We live in Australia. She follows western culture.

My assistant in office is a very highly educated girl who has done masters is also a muslim girl who respects me as her own family. This girl in my office is currently dating a hindu boy. If a person lives in a western nation, studies, works and befriends people of other faiths, it increases the chance for that person to get into relationship with someone out of their faith.

If demanding someone to marry only if that person converts, it would be like demanding a certain fee before marriage happens. This means there is no true love. There is no guarantee that after conversion that person will have complete faith in the new religion.

To have a lasting married life, i believe women need to accept whatever culture their man follows otherwise issues arise when naming their children or attending any functions outside her culture. If this change cannot happen, then don’t get into the relationship. A women will forever live with in their man’s house and will have to maintain good relationship with his family and friends.

My wife blended well with my hindu culture is because there are no strict rules to follow. We did legal marriage and then celebrated our marriage in a big way with our friends and relatives. –Amit

Amit says: December 4, 2017 at 6:56 pm
Hi Admin
My wife is from sunni muslim. She now follows western culture. On her facebook profile, she posts photos of herself when at temples, when at any drinking parties or resorts in swim wears or when with family members etc.All her relatives and friends comment and like the pictures.
Admin,my answer to your question if my sister ever falls in love with a muslim boy and has to eat beef and so on. If this happens, i would ask her to hold onto the marriage for say an year and stay at our own place, start practicing islam, wear scarf, do daily prayers, go and eat beef and then see how it goes.
If she manages it for an year then fine. She can move on with that boy and be faithful with him for always. This way we would avoid her from moving to a very strict religion and regretting after losing the freedom she enjoys now.
Answer to Mac’s question that i contradicted myself. Mac,if you were born in a hindu family you would have been talking something else. What i mean is that we should not forcefully convert any person. If a woman ever wants to marry outside her faith then she should accept her partner’s culture at her own will and there should not be any force on her. I had never forced my wife to follow any religion. It was her own choice.
Regarding Hindu religion, yes you are correct that it is not a religion. It wasn’t created or invented by any human. It is a set of guidelines (not commands or demands) about how to live a life to achieve moksha. What’s moksha and karma? Please search online. I have noticed on this site some non hindu’s commenting on idol worship. When praying, people uses idols to pass the message to the creator. Reason being humans can’t pray with an empty space in their mind unless they can picture god in any form. Say if i am a god and you create an idol of me for prayers, I would definitely understand the reason behind it.
Mac, if everyone starts to develop that hatred within oneself for other religions or cultures, world will never be a happy place. -Amit

Amit says: December 10, 2017 at 6:33 pm

Hi Admin, my parents and great great grandparents are from Fiji. The generation before them were from India. I had got onto your site after some friend had posted the link on facebook.

I didn’t know that churches in india are more intolerant towards hinduism. I know jesus never taught others to be intolerant. I have attended christian school, 40 years old and never been to india but still value the teachings of Hinduism. My great grandmother was a muslim but everything went on my great grandfathers way.

I would prefer to follow a religion that teaches peace and love towards fellow human beings without any discrimination or force conversion when choosing a partner for marriage.

I have a belief that a women should not be given a demand to convert then only marriage would take place. It should be within her will when choosing her religion.

From my experience it is usually safe for a couple in life if they practice one religion but if the woman prefers to follow something else, her man should accept her choice.

Marriage life is like a boat with a couple in it on it’s journey. If the wife’s leg is hanging outside it (she practices different religion), there are other women out there who may want to snatch her out and take her position.
It happened to me here few times. There have been some hindu female friends who had separated from their partners and tried to lure me into a relationship. The reason was that they had thought that my wife practices islam and they would make a nice fit within my religion and keep me and my kids happy.

There was somewhere on your site i had noticed statics on people from arab and christian faiths marrying outside their religion.

If you make a tour in this region, the figures would be much similar. From my experience in my region, more hindu girls are now more marrying within their same religion. With due respect to my islamic friends, the terror attacks and few arrested extremists, have changed the mindset of the non-muslim girls. wasn’t the case 20 years back. Also the girls prefer freedom and they choose their partner carefully so that they don’t lose that freedom. –Amit

Amit says: December 13, 2017 at 1:57 pm

Thanks Rekha. Something i’d like to share. My wife is ex-muslim. She now practices Hinduism. Her family is not wealthy and my mother in-law is always in hijab. Prior to marriage, my wife used to wear hijab at occasions.
I am from wealthy back ground with business and few property around here. We have two kids. When i visit her family, they respect me so much. During Eid, we always go to her parents. They arrange a special seat for me and serve me meals. If i was poor, the story would have been different. You know what, my wife’s favorite meal is spicy pork curry with chilled beer and she consumes that in presence of her parents when at restaurants. All the time she orders pork for herself. I have asked her not to do that in front of her parents but she just doesn’t listen. –Amit

A Muslim Converted to Baha’i

Areeba Shaikh says: November 27, 2017 at 3:08 am

I greet you with respect. My name is Areeba. The place I am today is due to my family. My family pushed to me into sin and they are becoming respected in society and has broken every kind of relationship with me.
I have supported a righteous man in this sinister town. He is not a Muslim in a Muslim country. He belongs to the “Baha’i” religion. I am staying with him for the past one year. He did not talk to me about my religion till date. I like this.
I wanted to change religion. I wanted to be like his but did not feel dare.
Two months ago, In dance program in Lahore I met Pakistan’s former model Shakira Nandini, who is living in Europe today, when Shakira heard her narrative. My courage increased. I have accepted the Baha’i religion last week in Lahore and I am proud of this process.

Interreligious Marriage: Do not Impose One’s Religious Beliefs on Partner

Inter religious Marriage: Do not Impose One’s Religious Beliefs on Partner

In the Western world, adults have the opportunity to date individuals from other faiths during their college years. Therefore it should come as no surprise that in North America about a third of the young generation of Dharmics (Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs) marry Abrahamics (Christians, Jews and Muslims). This trend is expected to rise in the years ahead.

There is often a large gap between the expectations of parents and children about the child’s choice of a life partner, at least initially. Thus, when an Abrahamic life partner is selected, Dharmic young adults will frequently make decisions without prior advice, guidance, or consultation with their parents and vice versa.

It is safe to say that most youths are not sufficiently knowledgeable about others’ faiths and how they differ from their own faith. Further, parents are often ill-equipped to guide their new adults in this critical transition, resulting in irrational
arguments between generations.

In the predominantly first-generation immigrant Hindu and Muslim communities, some parents with unmarried children may look smugly at others whose child has an interfaith spouse without realizing that it could happen in their own home.

We need to recognize that interfaith marriages are a matter of chance, regardless of the religious training given in childhood. Parents of interfaith married couples also need to learn to live with a new reality.

Parents who have children in interfaith marriages are reluctant to publicly share their experience, resulting in a loss of critical knowledge for the benefit of each community. It is hoped that wealth of knowledge collected at InterfaithShaadi.org about complexities in interfaith marriages will be of value to many communities.

Not all interfaith spouses try to impose their religious beliefs/practices on their counterpart in marriage, but it is critical to find out the facts sooner rather than later. It is also important to recognize that despite all the potential marital pitfalls, a successful and fulfilling inter-religious marriage is possible. One effective way to achieve this is by not imposing one’s religious beliefs on the other partner. –Admin, InterfaithShaadi.org

My Parents Want Hindu Wedding too!

Aditya says: November 11, 2017 at 11:04 am

Hello,

Let’s consider my name as Aditya and from South India. I am in a relationship with a Pentecost Christian girl for the last 5 years. I am Hindu from birth and she is converted to Christian when she was 12 years. Generally, she doesn’t accept Hindu traditions and so before agreeing my love proposal, she clearly said that we should get marry through Christian culture. And I too accepted for that before 5 years by thinking that I can change her. I am a person who gives respect to all the religion and their cultures. I have no issues with going to church for her. (But I am a Hindu and follow Hinduism and goes to churches for her wish).

Now, we have decided to get married and all the problems started. In my home, they have accepted to get married through Christian cultures. But at the same time, my parents also requesting to get married in Hindu culture too. (Of course, my wish too). But my girl and her parents are not at all accepting to get married in Hindu culture and they are saying that the marriage should happen only with Pentecost Christianity method. In my home, they want to satisfy them by accepting the marriage to be held first with Christian culture and further requesting to do the marriage again with Hindu tradition for our satisfaction. But my girl and her parents are so stubborn and saying that the marriage should happen only with Pentecost Christian method. I have been trying to teach her about humanity and God is one. But she is not at all understanding and saying the same thing that Jesus is the only God.

I failed in teaching her the truth of my personal belief that ‘God is one’ and you can call him as Jesus or Krishna or Allah or whatever you want. So, due to this we are fighting each other most of the times and don’t know what to do and how to proceed further with the marriage. Apart from this, the family background, status, caste and all are nearly equal for both the families and the only issue is the religion. I am really scary whether I can live a happy life with a person who is fighting with me for a simple matter religion and moreover, here in my family they may expect her to participate in the Hindu festivals and which she will not. At the same time, I couldn’t leave her as I don’t want to be in a situation like I have cheated a girl and I still love her. So, I am really confused.
Please share your thoughts and advise. -Aditya

Malay Muslim wants to Convert to Christianity

Mia says: November 9, 2017 at 7:55 pm

What if a muslim in Malaysia goes to another country (i.e Singapore) and get a citizenship there in Singapore first, then convert to a christian in Singapore? Then return to Malaysia as a Christian?
I am wondering if :
1. It is possible to convert to a christian in Singapore upon obtaining citizenship there?
2. Same as 1 but without Citizenship?
3. Return to Malaysia as a Christian?
4. Get married to a Christian in Malaysia and being able to Register the Marriage?
5. What is your status (religion) in Malaysia, if you are already a christian in another Country by law?
6. Dual citizenship is not allowed in Malaysia, if you choose to be a Singapore citizen and then wanted to come back to Malaysia again as?

P/s : I am in an interfaith relationship as well in Malaysia. I was born muslim. My mother was a christian before she converted to Muslim to marry my father. But She was blinded by love and would do what ever it takes to be married to my father even when deep inside, she loves her (Christian) religion so much too. I was raised by my grandmother who is a Christian and I fell in Love. I see no wrong and difference in both religion as both guided us to be a better person and to believe in the one and only god that created us. Im sorry if Im wrong but i believe that god is one but people got their own ways of reaching to God. Thats all. Therefore I dont mind converting as I know that I would still be a believer of god just in different ways.

They said when there is a will, there is a way. Been together for 7 years and I know that I have found the one. But it is impossible to convert to Christian in Malaysia. And I would not forced the love of my life to convert just for the sake of marriage. However, I do want to fight for our relationship yet still be at our home country. Fleeing to another country would be simple but there is no better place than home where all your other loves one at. You wouldn’t want to be far from your family and friends. They are equally important too. Therefore, Im trying to find the best means for us to be together. I dont believe that I should let go of the person who loves me and whom I love very much and wants to spent the entire life with just because the system says so. I believe that we are all equal and all religions are beautiful and there is no need to discriminate one another. I just dont get why we can’t be together just because we have different faith and culture. I will not give up on us, but I am near to a dead end and desperately need help. I look forward to your respond. Thank you very much. -Mia

Hindu: My Wife is Muslim in Fiji

Shaneil says: November 9, 2017 at 6:43 pm
Hi Sana,

My wife is from a muslim background here in Fiji. We couldn’t do wedding in religious way due to restrictions in islam. We only did legal marriage and a reception. Both our parents were present during our reception party. It has been 14 years and she just enjoys my culture to every bit of it. We have two kids. Here we cant discriminate anyone according to their race, religion, culture etc but it does happens with some who are very very strict to their religion.

Religion is enforced on us by our parents. We are not born hindu or muslim. If you were born in a hindu family, you would be practicing hinduism. Our birth place and religion we practice is due to our Karma. (Rewards from past actions). Have you noticed that there are little children in remote villages in India or Iraq suffering due to malnutrition. And there’s children in USA eating twice their limit and living a luxury life. Should we blame god for the kids that are suffering? No, God is not testing anybody. It is because of the law of Karma at work.
Regarding your marriage with your lover, you have spent 12 long years in a live in relationship and it proves that both of you are faithful to each other. The marriage is between you and your partner and not your parents. You will have to spend your entire life with your husband and not with your parents. Your parents will grow old and die but your husband will be with you always. Nobody has ever witnessed God coming down and enforcing rules on people on whom to marry or not to marry.
If you accept to settle with him, then do not practice two faiths as it will create conflict when you have children.
If you truly love him, accept him, his culture and be faithful to him forever. Unless he wants to follow yours which i might doubt from him. Your partner is also a creation of the same almighty god who has created you and marrying him is not breaking his rules. Only difference is he was born in different culture. After all you have lived with him for 12 years and just need to sign off papers and call him your husband. Best Wishes. -Shaneil

Hindu: My Wife is from a Muslim Family

Ray says: November 8, 2017 at 8:07 pm

Hi Sana, i am a hindu and my wife is from a muslim family. At first my wife’s parents were uneasy but when they met me, they liked me. Lucky us.
My wife didn’t know much about hinduism and neither she followed much of islam. Later on in our 11 years of married life, she did research on hinduism online and on videos and learnt a lot about the culture. She got to understand that God is one but with different powers and not many as some people perceive that hindu’s worship many gods. She now lives a western life.Wear all sort of clothes and she celebrates diwali in much big way than my relatives.

Regarding yourself, 12 years with him is too much. You have already broken the rules of islam. Leaving him and marrying someone else wont guarantee a happy life because your new partner will find it hard to accept your past. But, If you feel that you will not be able to adapt to your lover’s culture, better leave him and move on. If you have kids, what name will you give them? If you feel that you would be ok to learn and adapt his religion and culture, so be it. Go on. Go and settle with him. Later in life once you live a happy life, both your parents will cool down.You are not the only one in this situation. They are many who have broken the rules at home and settled with the person they love. But the rule of the thumb is that you have to follow same culture else it wont work. -Ray

Ray says: November 14, 2017 at 3:54 pm

Hi Admin, Sorry, i write too much. we had both islam and hindu wedding. My father inlaw had passed way when we were still dating. My mother inlaw said that her husband had promised her daughter that he would marry her to a boy of her choice regardless of the faith because every human is a creation of god. She didn’t want her daughter to elope with me and later on people look down at their family. She was binded by her husbands promise and requested me to attend a very short nikah ritual. Damn i was so nervous to my stomach during the nikah. I accepted it (Islam) and did it. My entire family and friends were there sitting around me. During my nikah, i noticed hindu and muslim unity. Later on in life when i researched about islam, i realized it was not right what i did. I didn’t fake the nikah but only did what i was asked. I should have just done legal and a reception party but still it would have been against my mother inlaws will. I would suggest to anyone just to do legal and throw in a big party.

Admin, i just read the link you attached in your reply asking if she is a true Muslim.
My wife no longer practices islam. Once a person starts to live a western life, its hard for them to follow strict culture. Wearing two piece clothes on the beach at the resorts and drinking till she gives up, my wife knows she cant look back at islam. She knows more then any ordinary hindu about hinudism after watching religious show on TV Channels such as Colors, Zee TV and Sony etc broadcasted from India.Recently she burnt midnight oil watching Sankat Mochan Hahabali Hanuman and mastered every bit of it. -Ray

After Marriage She (Christian) Changed

Narsi says: November 7, 2017 at 1:12 pm

Hi, I’m married to a Christian girl and I’m Hindu, whom I’m with in love from past 4yrs. Before Marriage she used to practice all hindu cultures like coming to temples and putting sindur. We got married in unacceptance by both parents and married at Arya samaj. But once we married she started refusing even me to practice hindu practices.. I’m totally confused I’m frustrated now. -Narsi

Narsi says: January 15, 2018 at 1:03 pm (Edit)
Thank you so much for your response.

Yes we married at “Arya samaj”, later after 1 month we gone for court marriage by her force. Im not having any issues with her religion, i will respect what she beliefs and what she follows because i love her how she was. i don’t want her to be my slave. Il give her freedom and space for her beliefs and religion and individuality.
The problem what i facing is “i am losing my individuality 🙁 ” some times i feel like im no more 🙁
Basically im not much religious person (before marriage also i will not go to temples often), but i have some my beliefs and i do have some wish that my wife must be like so and so( Putting sindur, i want to go to some temples with her and so other like an normal Hindu husband wish ). And finally i losing Love and affection on her. Im doing my role as my husband perfectly expecting giving her love (im acting 🙁 ). I dint know till where it takes… But one thing she loves me a lot but not my beliefs, my thoughts and religion that the only thing i unable to digest. I still think that she is still her Daughter rather than my Wife.

Coming to society and relatives – Whenever we visits church i will be as Christian only and also with her relatives because no one should show finger to my wife because of me. I also expect the same from her, but im not getting it return. Often we visit to my home where my parents live for any festivals, she will not participate in any Rituals and customs(even she not keeps Bindu on her forehead). I feel like my parents are thinking that i take the wrong decision in my marriage. Im avoiding the relatives functions also. Im feeling guilty on my self 🙁

When ever i try to explain her the things, she always starts criticizing the Hindu cultures and Gods, even i can also do on Bible but i dont want (Thats not me) so the reason i stopped talking to her in this Religious aspects.

Please suggest me what to do !!!!!!!!!!!!

Hindu: My Muslim Friend Left Me

Asha says: November 2, 2017 at 8:10 am

Hi, my boyfriend who is Muslim has recently left me because he believes that he can’t have me. I am a hindu, I don’t follow the religion. so therefore I’m not a religious person. Me and my ex wanted to get married but our parents weren’t accepting us. We have been together for 2 years and even though he has left me, I continue to fight for him. I know to marry a Muslim I would have to convert and I was happy to do so. Though converting just to marry someone isn’t right, I had the intentions of learning Islam properly after I had converted and we were married.

We were going to run away, get married and not tell our parents but he has given up. He still loves me and he still wants to be with me but he just wants our parents to accept, which I don’t see happening. He hardly talks to me, he tells me to move on and to forget about him but I can’t because I love him so much. He tells me if it is written then it will happen and if its meant to be Allah will make it easier for us to be together.

I don’t know what to do, whether I leave him alone to think. He wants to get married soon and I’m scared he will never come back to me though I never did anything wrong to him. I feel as if he’s going to forget me and marry someone else. He tells me not to message him, that he is trying to get away from me so now he has blocked me and he wont even meet me in person to talk about this. we have only been texting and I feel so heart broken.

someone please give me some advice. Thank you. –Asha

A Muslim cannot Say Happy Diwali

If you are in a Hindu-Muslim love relationship, you should know this. Is this Islamic teaching?

Can a Muslim say Happy Diwali to a Hindu friend? No. A Muslim is suppose to reply “to you”, meaning it is only for you, not me.
Can a Muslim eat Diwali sweets given by a Hindu? No.
It is haram to say Happy Diwali. If you say so, then you are endorsing that there was a Lord Ram (that is apostasy).
If Hindu say Eid Mubarak, let them say. It is good.
Allah is God, not Ram
(there is one God and that is mine!).

FATWA against Muslim women for worshiping Ram on Diwali:

Varanasi: In yet another controversial move, Uttar Pradesh’s Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a fatwa against a group of Muslim women who were seen participating in Ram Aarti on Diwali in Varanasi.

The Islamic seminary has denounced and expelled the women, citing violation of principles of the Shariat, that is the Islamic law, as they had worshiped a deity other than Allah.
If a Muslim worships any god except Allah they don’t remain Muslims,” Mohd. Shafiq Khan, Ulema, Darul Uloom told ANI, adding that Islam dismisses such people.
He further said, In Islam, we worship only one diety, one God. Be it men, or women, they will remain Muslims only as long as they continue to worship one diety. They cease to become Muslims if they violate this norm and worship another God, be it Ram or Krishna, or someone else.”

Fatwa bans Muslims from posting pictures on social media, calls it unIslamic
Incidentally, Mufti Rais Ashraf, President of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) spoke about the issue of Muslim actors praying to a God other than Allah, for the sake of acting. He said that they should not do the ‘pooja’ even while acting as a “Muslim cannot worship anyone other than Allah”.

Meanwhile, he ostracised women have hit back at their detractors, clarifying that they were merely acting in the spirit of composite culture.

This isn’t the first time that the Darul Uloom Deoband has waded into a controversy over their ‘fatwas’. Recently, they had issued a fatwa banning Muslims from posting pictures on social media sites. Prior to that, the Islamic seminary had also banned Muslim women from going to beauty parlours for personal grooming.

Rabia says: November 1, 2017 at 8:17 am
It’s ridiculous to say that you cannot say “happy Diwali” to a Hindu friend as a Muslim. I’m sorry but that’s absolute BS. And it’s even more BS to say that it’s haraam to post photos on social media – I have seen some Salafis with Facebook profiles so clearly even they – in their conservative selves – don’t agree with it. So you can only imagine what I as a liberal Muslim think about such allegations. –Rabia

mac says: November 11, 2017 at 3:56 pm
It means Muslim world has realised their corruption and are returning back to the real strict true Islam (not to say Happy Diwali), which some casual muslims might hate due to their personal deeds in life. hahahah 😀 –mac

On the Run for Love: Buddhist-Muslim Marriage

Stanzin Saldon and Murtaza Agha are trying to bridge a Buddhist-Muslim divide
Source: The New York Times (also appeared in India Abroad Oct, 2017)

In front of a tin-roofed house with the Himalaya Mountains rising behind it, about 300 wedding guests waited on a big green lawn, eager for the arrival of the bride and groom.

As the couple appeared, the guests formed a happy scrum around them, whisking them through the doorway and into the house. The rooms smelled of the coming feast: tandoori chicken, salty tea, fresh rolls and succulent goat meat cooked in yogurt and spices.

But the bride’s entire family was conspicuously missing from the party.

The bride, Stanzin Saldon, is from a Buddhist family, and the groom, Murtaza Agha, is a Muslim. Both grew up in Ladakh, a remote region of Jammu and Kashmir State in India. So what happens around here when a Buddhist woman falls for a Muslim man? Chaos.

The young couple’s romance has spawned protests, shut down businesses, caused fistfights and pitted Muslim and Buddhist leaders against each other. The police have been forced to intervene, and so have the courts.

For several days the two even had to go on the run. They drove around the nearby Kashmir Valley, which is crawling with militants and soldiers, worried sick about being caught together.

But Saldon, flush with fresh love, would do it all over again. “We found peace in a conflict
region,” she said earnestly. The Ladakh region is widely considered one of India’s most charming spots. The main town, Leh, feels like a glass museum case of traditional Buddhist culture delicately perched on a shelf high in the Himalayas. Each year, thousands of Indian and foreign tourists come here to stroll around the old Buddhist monasteries, take pictures of the saffron- robed monks and eat yak cheese pizza.

In the west lies the mainly Muslim town of Kargil, where green-domed mosques rise behind stores with Arabic names. Taking Kargil and Leh together, this region’s population is around a quarter million, split roughly in half between Buddhists and Muslims, along with a few Hindus.

In Leh, Buddhist women grumble that there aren’t enough Buddhist men around because so many have become monks.

The Buddhist-Muslim divide seems to be getting sharper in this part of the world. Neighboring Bangladesh is struggling to absorb hundreds of thousands of Muslim Rohingyas, an ethnic group from Myanmar, who recently fled atrocities by Myanmar’s military and Buddhist majority.

But to Saldon, 30, and Agha, 32, none of this mattered.

Theirs is a Ladakh love affair, through and through. They met on a college trekking trip to the Himalayas. They kept in touch. Agha, a government engineer, and Saldon, a social worker, both
lived in the city of Jammu, south of Ladakh, and they couldn’t stop calling each other for coffee and lunch. Saldon said she could feel herself falling in love with the soft-spoken and gentle-mannered Agha. But she kept it a secret.

After she was nearly killed in a rickshaw accident, though, she recalled, “It was Murtaza’s face
that floated before my eyes. I decided life was too short and I should confess my love.”

Agha, who grew up in Kargil, couldn’t have been happier. But when he told his
family he wanted to marry a Buddhist girl from Leh, his father’s response was: impossible.

“Why marry a Leh girl?” his family kept asking. There were so many more Muslim
options.

In July 2016, with help from one of Agha’s uncles, the couple held a very small private wedding under a clear blue sky by one of Kargil’s sparkling mountain streams.

Then they went back to their jobs, the world oblivious to their relationship. They maintained
separate homes, planning to one day unite.

But soon their family members found out. While . Agfa’s people took it in stride, Saldon’s went berserk. They pulled her out of Jammu and locked her in the family home in Leh. Her father spat in her face, and later called on shamans to perform ceremonies to try to make her forget about Agha, she said.

Saldon said she lost 20 pounds. She was heartsick to be away from Agha and terrified of her father, who kept screaming at her.

“I was totally cut off from the outside world,” she said. “I feared death as my father shouted,
‘Why did you not die no sooner than you were born?’’’ One morning she sneaked out. She knew her family would chase her, so she went to court and won a restraining order demanding that they leave her alone. But the problem was bigger than her family now, and things in Leh were about to get sticky.

The Buddhist community association was so outraged by the relationship, and the fact that Saldon had fled, that it sent young men stomping through Leh’s main bazaar, demanding that all the shopkeepers help bring her back.

Buddhist toughs threatened taxi drivers and merchants from Kargil, telling them they weren’t
allowed to work in Leh. A few men got into fistfights — all over a couple most of them didn’t even know.

The Buddhist association tried to drag in the state government, sending a letter in September
that read, “We have repeatedly asked the Muslim community leaders to sensitize their communities to stay away from such wicked and depraved acts which otherwise will lead to communal unrest.”

The head of a Muslim organization in Kargil shot off a counter letter asking Buddhists to calm down. The state government declined to get involved, except for sending more police officers to the market.

Leh’s Buddhists remain bitter. “The Muslims are trying to finish us off,” said Gushe Konchok Namgyal, a head lama, as he slurped a bowl of lentils and rice in a 500-year-old monastery.

Not only is it crucial that Buddhists marry Buddhists, he said, but Buddhist women should have a dozen children to match the Muslims or the Buddhists will “face extinction.”

Harsh Malhotra, chief coordinator for the Love Commandos, a voluntary Indian organization that helps couples fight off arranged marriages and deal with harassment from their families, said this case was getting attention across the country. But he wasn’t surprised. “Just as the Ganges flows freely, so, too, lovers of any caste, creed and sect,” he said.

This Ladakhi version of Romeo and Juliet was easy to politicize, he said, because the couple came from middle-class backgrounds and were perfect fodder for “those who consider themselves to be the self-appointed guardians of culture and society.”

Leh has since calmed down. But the episode has put a little extra steam in the quest by some
of Leh’s Buddhists to get more autonomy for the Ladakh region. As for the couple, they seem
to have weathered this unscathed. She is hoping her parents will come around someday soon and welcome her and her husband with a hug.

At their long-delayed wedding reception in September, Ms. Saldon was beaming as Mr. Agha’s relatives draped a garland of Indian rupees around her neck.

She now lives with Agha in an apartment in Jammu, which is mostly Hindu and, for this young couple, considered neutral territory. And just as the Buddhist leaders feared, she has converted to Islam.

On the Run for Love: Let a Rose be a Rose
INDIA ABROAD (NOV 5, 2017)

The article “On the Run for Love” leaves out many fundamental facts behind years of religious conflicts. The article is saying Muslim people took it in stride, while Buddhists are going berserk. Why?

As per Koran 2:221, a Muslim cannot marry a Dharmic. There is no imam in this world who will perform an Islamic Nikaah wedding of a Muslim to a Hindu or Buddhist; they must convert. I have consulted some 900 cases like Seldon-Agha at InterfaithShaadi.org and summarized it in my recently published book “Interfaith Marriage: Share and Respect with Equality.” If Saldon did not convert to Islam, will not the Muslim community go more than berserk? Will the Muslim community still be in stride if Agha’s sister did exactly like what Seldon did?

My survey shows that 45 percent of Muslims marry outside their faith in America. I believe in most cases the non-Muslims have to convert or agree to raise children only in Islamic faith. Interfaith marriages result in net gain for Islam while for all others it is a silent holocaust.

I understand if Muslims wish to follow Koranic guidance. If so then, Muslim youths should also follow Koran 24:30. They are supposed to lower their gaze when they see a person of opposite sex. To ask for religious conversion for marriage after years of romantic relationship is an ugly form of proselytization.

Are Buddhists and Muslims willing to bridge the division? Superiority complex will increase the gap while equality and sharing two faiths in one marriage will help bridge the division. Are Buddhists willing to include Muslims in their rituals? Are Muslims ready to accept a “Buddhist” as a bride or groom without (fake) conversion? It is high time that this religious conversion for marriage practice should end. Let’s learn to accept people the way they are. Let a rose be a rose and a carnation be a carnation. –Dilip Amin InterfaithShaadi.org

Ecumenical and Inter-Religious Marriages

ECUMENICAL AND INTER-RELIGIOUS MARRIAGE

On the off chance that you and your significant other are of various religions and would prefer not to change over or wed just in regular citizen, realize that there are choices. Details are presented in this article.

At the point when two individuals become hopelessly enamored, they don’t generally match with a few goals of life, legislative issues or religion. Notwithstanding, in light of the fact that the want to celebrate and to join before a festival their affection is more grounded, many choose to wed, despite the fact that they don’t expect to change over the religion of the other or just to sign a paper in the public accountant, for instance.

For this, there are a few choices, for example, ecumenical marriage or between religious marriage. We reveal to you what contrasts there are in the two and why these functions can be an option for the individuals who would prefer not to change over or wed only for the regular citizen.

Ecumenical marriage

Ecumenical marriage or “marriage with clique uniqueness” happens when the lady of the hour and prepare is from various Christian houses of worship. This kind of function in Portugal is responsible for the National Council of Christian Churches, shaped by the Evangelical Lutheran Confession Church in Portugal, the United Presbyterian Church of Portugal, the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church, the Anglican Episcopal Church of Portugal, the Methodist Church, Reformed Christian Church, and the Sirian Catholic Orthodox Church of Portugal.

It ought to likewise be recollected that as per the convention of ecumenical marriage, if the groom or lady of the hour tries playing out the function as per the statutes of these foundations, they should wed inside the congregation.

Interfaith marriage

The interfaith service, thusly, does not need to be held in the congregation and can be praised in the place that the couple favors. On the off chance that you are a Buddhist and your life partner is Jewish, for instance, you can do it on a homestead, on the shoreline, in the field, in a more casual and personal condition.

In the event that you pick this sort of marriage, it is constantly vital to regard the two religions and request that the ceremonialist set up a suitable discourse as indicated by the statements of faith of each.

In the two cases, we leave a suggestion: ramble to stay away from any sort of misleading or disarray about various religions and know each other completely, as this will likewise be critical for both of you. Will you wed by these sorts of relational unions? How do you want to celebrate?

Interfaith Wedding Ceremony

It might happen that they don’t have a similar religion, a predicament emerges either on the grounds that they have constantly longed for a function in the light of a religion, or in light of the fact that they would prefer not to frustrate any side of the family. Every religion has its principles about the function, and there may even be a “no” in the laws of religion where it won’t be conceivable to put the speculation of a between religious service.

In the Christian catholic religion the between religious service itself does not exist. They may, be that as it may, settle on a Catholic wedding festivity with the interest of another cleric of another religion. In the event that a husband is a Christian catholic and the festival of the function is performed by a Christian cleric, yet with the support of a minister of another religion, the last consequence of the marriage will be a Christian Catholic marriage.

On the off chance that your religions are more tolerant, you will just need to discover a minister of every religion who consents to hold a joint service. This circumstance might be hard to oversee; however in the event that conceivable, it might be the most reasonable for both. On the off chance that your religion does not allow joint services, the perfect would be either to choose a common function, or for a service of just a single religion, making a request to be honored by the other religion in a less formal function.
