Karnataka High Court Says Marrying Person of Choice a Fundamental Right

Upholding the right of an individual to marry the person of his or her choice, the Karnataka High Court recently directed a woman’s welfare organisation to release a software engineer who the court said was capable enough to take decision regarding her life. According to a report in The Times of India, the court said it was well settled that the right of any major individual to marry “the person of his/her choice is a fundamental right enshrined in the Constitution of India”, adding “the said liberty relating to the personal relationships of two individuals cannot be encroached by anybody irrespective of caste or religion".
