The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday ruled that mandatory publication of notices for inter-faith marriages will be optional in order to protect the liberty and privacy of the couples. Justice Vivek Choudhary observed that the publication of notices would “invade the fundamental rights of liberty and privacy” and also affect a couple’s decision to marry due to interference from state and non-state actors. In an order that is likely to bring relief to inter-faith couples, the court said it will be optional for couples to make a request in writing to a marriage officer to publish or not publish a notice regarding the union.
