"MPS Ramani. Pls check ur knowledge. Any person who is Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs can perform Arya Samaj Marriage. Any person who is not Muslims, Christians, Parsis or Jews can also perform Arya Samaj Marriage.
Is the above quotation from any law? If so please let me know the Act and the Section.
The Arya Samaj Marriage Validation Act, 1937 has only 2 Sections and I reproduce below Section 2 of the Act.
Marriage between Arya Samajis not to be invalid:- Notwithstanding any provision of Hindu Law, usage or custom to the contrary no marriage contracted whether before or after the commencement of this Act between two persons being at the time of marriage Arya Samajis shall be invalid or shall be deemed ever to have been invalid by reason only of the fact that the parties at any time belonged to different castes or different sub castes of Hindus or that either or both of the parties at any time before the marriage belonged to a religion other than Hinduism
It is clear that in order the marriage to be valid it is necessary that the parties should first be Arya Samajis.
Please do not make personal statements. If you have any law, section or judgment to contradict the above give it here. Performing Arya Samaj marriage and validity of the marriage are two different things.
