Read this news… Net Nikah solemnised
Really interesting… marriage was solemnised online through Web-Camera and marriage was valid under Mulim Laws, as all the required conditions provided under Muslim Law were fulfilled like presence of witness, etc.
But it will be difficult under Hindu laws, as per sec 7 of Hindu Marriage Act, the marriage is to be performed as per the customary rites and ceremonies of either party. Which normally includes “SAPTDPADI” i.e. taking of seven steps by the bridegroom and the bride jointly before the sacred fire….
… Hindus need amendment of law for marrying online 😉
