Month after becoming Muslim, Court provides protection to woman allegedly threatened by Hindu family

Srinagar: More than a month after a woman from Jammu and Kashmir converted to Islam, the J&K High Court has ordered the administration to provide protection to her as she is ‘being threatened by her family for converting to another religion’.

The woman identified as Fatima, a resident of J&K’s Kishtwar district, became a Muslim in June this year after renouncing Hinduism.

She claimed to Clarion India she was not being allowed to freely profess and propagate her faith. Fatima embraced Islam by her own will on June 14, 2020, adopting a Muslim name, Fatima, but “her life has been made miserable by her relatives.”
