The religious conversion just for the purpose of marriage is unacceptable, the Allahabad High Court said on Saturday while dismissing a writ petition filed by an inter-faith couple seeking police protection. Justice Mahesh Chandra Tripathi said it clearly reveals that the conversion took place only for the purpose of the marriage. Justice Tripathi referred to a 2014 judgement in which the same court had observed that conversion just for the purpose of marriage is unacceptable. The court then dismissed the writ petition, saying that it is not inclined to interfere in the matter under Article 226 of Constitution of India
