In order to have a Christian wedding at a Church, most Christian Churches would expect the couple to be both Christian and some even attend Church to show commitment to the faith. However, when it comes to Sikhs, it seems the media and outsiders feel it justified to criticise Sikhs for only allowing Sikhs to partake in the Sikh religious marriage ceremony in the Gurdwara.

In recent years, the incidences of interfaith marriages (i.e.

Sikh and non-Sikh) have been increasing in Gurdwaras across the world despite the Panthic Sikh Rehat Maryada clearly stating that “a Sikh should marry only a Sikh.” Rehitnamas further say: 2.

Coming out in defence of a young couple, the Supreme Court on Wednesday provided police protection to a Muslim girl and a Sikh boy in Jammu and Kashmir, who received threats after they got married.

A vacation bench of Justices Prafulla Pant and Amitava Roy also directed the J&K police not to arrest the boy who is facing charges of kidnap, registered at the behest of the girl’s parents.

The J&K police has said the case could trigger communal unrest in Jammu, where the couple lived before marriage.The girl converted to Sikhism under the customary law before tying the knot.Seeking SC’s intervention, both Dilar Singh and Sanampreet Kaur said the local police was duty-bound to maintain law and order.Their advocate Mandeep Reen said the police cannot proceed against Dilar on communal considerations or else they would be violating the State’s responsibility to remain neutral in matters of religion.“They are duty-bound to maintain law and order and cannot take the plea of communal disturbances to deny the fundamental rights of the petitioners under Article 21 of the Constitution of India,” the petitioners stated in their plea.The girl, who belonged to the Muslim community, had married the Dilar, who works for a private cable service provider, on April 2.
