Elizabeth Hurley has been branded a criminal in India for marrying in a traditional Hindu ceremony. After the much-publicized nuptials in India, angry locals insist she has broken the law.
Vishnu Khandewal, from Jodhpur, claims under 295a of the Indian Penal Code – which deals with “deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings” – it is against the law to marry in a Hindu ceremony if you are not a Hindu.
She has hurt the religious sentiments of the community by marrying in Hindu style, which is a criminal offence.
His allegations will reportedly be heard in a Jodhpur court on March 21. Liz’s representatives have not commented on the matter.
Indian locals dubbed Hurley the “oldest bride they had ever seen”. Hindu girls usually marry in their late teens or early twenties, almost half the age of 41-year-old Liz.
