Marry a Hindu Lady
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:Do not marry mushrik woman, unless they believe.
In light of the above clear commandment of Allah Subhanah in the Quran, it is not permitted and it is haraam for a believing man to marry a mushrik (Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Parsi, etc.) woman, unless they profess belief in Allah as their Lord and Creator; believe in all His Messengers, all His Revealed Books, the Angels, the Divine Decree, the Hereafter, and declare the testification of Islam: Laa Ilaaha illallaah, Mohamed ar Rasool Allah.
If the girl you wish to marry declares her belief in the Oneness of Allah, and believes that Mohamed (saws) is the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, of her own free will; then it would be legal for you to marry her.
But if the girl refuses to declare belief in Allah and His Last Messenger (saws), the marriage would be deemed null and void in the sight of Islamic Law.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
