Let us know that Salamat Ansari and Priyanka Kharbar, who live in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh, went against their family’s wishes and got married in August last year. Priyanka accepted Islam before marriage and changed her name to Alia.
Priyanka’s family lodged an FIR accusing Salamat of “kidnapping” and “seducing her for marriage”. The POCSO Act was also included in the FIR. The family claimed that their daughter was a minor when married.
Salamat filed a petition requesting the cancellation of the FIR lodged against him. On November 11, the Allahabad High Court, while hearing Salamat’s petition, ruled.
Dismissing the arguments of the UP government and the woman’s family, the High Court said in the 14-page order, “Living with someone of your choice, no matter what religion they believe in, every person’s life and personal liberty Is a fundamental part of authority. “
