Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh), Sep 17: The Allahabad High Court has observed that adults have the right to choose their life partner, irrespective of the religion professed by them.

The court made this observation on Thursday while granting protection to an interfaith couple from Gorakhpur. “In such a case, not even their parents can object to their relationship,” the court further observed.

Hearing a petition jointly filed by Shifa Hasan and her Hindu partner, a division bench comprising justice Manoj Kumar Gupta and Justice Deepak Verma said, “It cannot be disputed that two adults have the right of choice of their matrimonial partner, irrespective of the religion professed by them.”

“As the present petition is a joint petition by the two individuals who claim to be in love with each other and are major, therefore, in our considered opinion, nobody, not even their parents, can object to their relationship”, the court added in a judgment delivered on Thursday.

In the joint petition, the petitioners’ contention was that they are in love with each other and are living together on their own will. However, their relationship was not being accepted by some of their family members and they were disturbing their peaceful living.

After hearing all sides at length, the court granted protection to the couple, saying that not even their parents could object to their relationship.

Accordingly, the court directed the police authorities to ensure that the petitioners were not subjected to any harassment by the father of the girl or by any other person in connection with their relationship with each other.

During the course of hearing, the petitioner, Shifa Hasan submitted before the court that she had also filed an application for conversion from Muslim to Hindu religion.

According to her, on the said application, the district magistrate had called for a report from the police station concerned.

As per the report, the boy’s father was not agreeable to the marriage though his mother was ready for the same. Both parents of Hasan were opposed to the marriage.

The court took note of the fact that both the petitioners are major, aged 19 and 24 years respectively.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
