The people of India believe more in inter-caste marriage, but when it comes to marriage in other religions, most Indians deny it. Two out of three Indians do not want to marry in other religions. This has come out openly in the Pew survey. Shocking revelations in the Pew Research Center have said that two out of every three people in India are opposed to inter-religious marriage. According to a survey by the Pew Research Center, two out of three Indians are opposed to people marrying outside their religion.
Willing to stop women from inter-religious marriage
According to the survey, 67 percent of the respondents said that it is very important for them that inter-religious marriages of women from their community should be stopped. In the survey, 65 percent said this about the men of their community. However, there was a lot of difference between different communities in the survey and each community expressed its views in its own way. According to the survey, 67 percent Hindus, 80 percent Muslims, 59 percent Sikhs and 66 percent Jains said that women should be prevented from marrying outside their community.
different attitudes for men
On the other hand, when it came to men marrying girls of other religions, 65 per cent Hindus, 76 per cent Muslims, 58 per cent Sikhs and 59 per cent Jains said they should be prevented from marrying outside the community. However, the reaction of Christians and Buddhists was different from that of other communities. Among Christians, 37 per cent said that women should be prevented from marrying outside the community, compared to 35 per cent for men. Among Buddhists, this figure was 46 percent and 44 percent for women and men, respectively.
Fewer people opposed to interracial marriage
Almost all married people (99%) said that their spouse followed their religion. This includes Hindus (99%), Muslims (98%), Christians (95%), Sikhs and Buddhists (97%). That is, 99 percent of marriages have taken place in their own religion. According to the survey, opposition to inter-caste marriage was marginally less than that of inter-religious marriage. 62% of men and 64% of women of all religions said it was important to prevent people from marrying outside their caste.
