The Rajasthan High Court has raised questions about a 22-year-old woman's conversion to Islam and her interfaith marriage before sending her to a government home for a week. It is a virtual re-run of the Hadiya case in Kerala that sparked a nationwide controversy. What's more the high court has put the state government on notice, asking why there is no law or procedure in Rajasthan that governs religious conversions, observing that people can't change their religions based on an affidavit. Do courts even have a role to play in such cases? Why should an adult woman not have the freedom to choose who she marries, or whether or not to convert? We debate on The Buck Stops Here.
