Christian man cannot marry 2nd time, as it comes bigamy. So the 2nd wife cannot claim legal financial benefits.
Dr J C Vashista (Expert) 13 November 2022
Marriage in Islam is contract and not solemnized.
Wife is stated to be professing Hinduism whereas stated to have been married with a christian married person. Further the marriage is stated to have been solemnized by Muslim clergy. Moreover, she (wife) is stated to have given birth to child/ children under the marriage arrangement and seeking maintenance for herself as well as child /children ................ and what not .............??????????

Attention Expert kavksatyanarayana as per the other expert marriage in Islam is a contract. How you are defining is a marriage and call it an act of polygamy. A reply is awaited as this is a serious matter.
kavksatyanarayana (Expert) 13 November 2022
The female is Hindu and the Christian man converted to Islam's wife is alive and did not take divorce, he cannot marry 2nd wife and hence it becomes polygamy.

In Indian marriage between different faiths is possible only under Special Marriage Act.

Marriage is void. However children' maintenance can still be demanded.
