Sir this is Naik, my wife files 498 A R/w 34, sec 3 & 4 of Dpc 1961 act, and filed maintenance case against me.
My doubt is : she was regularly followed the Christianity religion, even though my marriage was held as per Hindu religion, my family following Hindu religions After my marriage, she never follows the Hindu religion at my home when was lives with me.
Now junior court given order to pay 8000 rupee as interior maintenance to her and my daughter(she is now with her mother).
I have some hand written documents of prepared praying to Christian God and important point noted down from Bible by my wife is there as proof. But i don't have any baptized certificate of my wife as to prove as Christianity.
As per Hindu marriage maintenance and adoption act Sec18(3)of act 78 of 1956 , with above documentary evidence, can i use as per this act to decline the maintenance tobmy wife.
Please suggest me sir with some of example case.
