    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.
