Arya Samaj Societies is misusing its belief, its marriage certificate has no legality: HC

Lucknow: The Arya Samaj Societies is misusing its belief in organizing marriages without even considering the genuineness of documents, the Allahabad High Court ruled while hearing a habeas corpus petition.

The court also said that the issued by the Arya Samaj Societies is not a legal document and the marriage should be registered with the government authority to get legal validity.

While dealing with a habeas corpus petition, Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamshery said, "The court has been flooded with the marriage certificates issued by different Arya Samaj Societies which have been seriously questioned during different proceedings before this court as well as by other high courts."

"The said institution has misused their beliefs in organizing the marriages without even considering the genuineness of documents," the court further observed.

In the present case, a habeas corpus petition was filed by one Bhola Singh alleging that corpus (petitioner number 2) is the wife of the petitioner and in order to prove that they were legally married, counsel for petitioners had placed reliance upon a certificate issued by Arya Samaj Mandir, Ghaziabad.

"Since the marriage has not been registered, therefore, only on the basis of the said certificate it cannot be deemed that the parties have married," the court observed.

"In the present case, the corpus is a major and an FIR has been lodged against the petitioner by father of petitioner No. 2 corpus and investigation is undergoing, therefore, there is no case of illegal detention," the court observed and dismissed the petition on August 31.
