Following or having faith in any religion is ones personal choice and recognized as a fundamental right of a citizen . If a person is a genuinely following a religion that is enough to show her as a follower of that particular faith. In this situation legal status of wife is that she is hindu n mere conversion into hindu does not absolve her rights as a muslim married women . The renunciation of Islam by a married muslim woman or her conversion to a faith other than Islam shall not by itself operate to dissolve her marriage
