Woman can be buried with hus­band:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

Bangladesh’s high­est court has ruled that a woman who took her life four years ago is a Mus­lim and can be buried along­side her hus­band, end­ing a high-pro­file le­gal bat­tle over in­ter­faith mar­riage.

The court ruled last week that Hosne Ara Lazu did con­vert to Is­lam af­ter mar­ry­ing Hu­mayun Farid Lazu in 2013, de­spite her fam­ily’s in­sis­tence that she re­turned to Hin­duism be­fore her death.

The fam­i­lies op­posed the union be­tween a Mus­lim and a Hindu and pres­sured them to call off the match. The girl’s fa­ther went so far as to file al­le­ga­tions with po­lice of kid­nap­ping against the young man. (AFP)
