Youths Saw Man As `Danger To Hindu Religion’
The Supreme Court has awarded life imprisonment to two youths for killing a Muslim man after he married two Hindu girls, who later converted to Islam.
A bench of Justices F M I Kalifulla and U U Lalit convicted the accused after relying on the prosecution’s theory that conversion was behind the killing and the accused had threatened to kill Sultan Meeran, a resi dent of Coimbatore, after he married a Hindu girl who converted to Islam.
The accused -Kamal and his friend -had warned Sultan that he would be killed if he converted other girls as his act was creating “danger for Hindu religion“.
