Islam is often called the "religion of peace".Many people (both Muslim and Non-Muslim) misunderstand, intentionally or not, what the term "religion of peace" comes from.

Why can a Muslim girl not marry a Hindu boy if they both are happy to follow their own religion?

Answer AAccording to Islamic tradition, a Muslim girl can only marry a Muslim man. However, secular laws do take precedence over religious traditions and even religious laws. In India, the Special Marriages Act of 1954 specifically allows for inter-faith marriages, so that a Muslim girl can marry a Hindu boy. Western countries do not even need a Special Marriages Act - if a couple are married according to law, then that marriage is valid. Answer BIslam religion is not just ritual worships or faith principles. Islam religion is way of life. If Islam rules and God commands require that a Muslim girl marry only a Muslim man, then it is a must to follow this rule as far as you are Muslim. Otherwise, no one is obliged on having a faith that he/she is not satisfied with. Marriage per religion will not be licit if it is against Islamic rules even if it is legal per civil laws. Marriage per Islam religion is not just sex and not just to be happy with your partner. Marriage in Islam is the build up of a family and raising up of children on Islam faith (at least until reaching puberty). One should be wise enough to seek happiness in both lives with priority to second life which is the eternal life. The Muslim girl if married with a non Muslim man (who does not believe in her religion) could never be sure that he will allow her to practice her ritual worships smoothly or allow her to raise her children on Islam.
