The colonial state’s meddling in the marriage between the Brahmin Luxmeebae and her Christian convert husband, Narayen Ramchundur, unleashed potent political emotions across mid-19th century Britain and India. Their dispute provoked riots in India, but its legal resolution was celebrated in Britain for bringing "Liberty of Conscience" to India.
