Conversion can’t deny inheritance of properties to Hindus: Bombay HC

The Bombay High Court today held that a Hindu woman or a man does not lose the right to inherit parents’ property under the Hindu Succession Act even after converting to another religion. “The right to inheritance is not a choice but it is by birth and in some cases it is acquired by marriage. Therefore, renouncing a particular religion and to get converted is a matter of choice and cannot cease relationships which are established and exist by birth,” Justice Bhatkar said.
