Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Efforts increase to prevent interfaith marriage in India” – below is their description.
Controversy is increasing in India over attempts to curb interfaith marriage.
In one high-profile case, a Hindu woman told Al Jazeera she had a miscarriage after police imprisoned her Muslim husband and sent her to a women’s shelter while investigating whether she was forced to convert to Islam.
Her state, Uttar Pradesh, is the latest to pass a law making it more difficult for people from different religions to marry.
Al Jazeera’s Elizabeth Puranam reports from Moradabad.
