- Chander Mohan
Chander Mohan, is the former Deputy Chief Minister of Haryana State in India. He was dismissed from the State Cabinet for his prolonged absence from the office. Mohan is a former student of Lawrence School Sanawar. He resurfaced, after marrying Anuradha Bali alias Fiza (Urdu: فضا ) and converting to Islam with her and adopting the name Chand Mohammad (Urdu: چاند محمد ). The conversion was merely to facilitate a legal second marriage, as Hindus/Sikhs are not allowed multiple marriages in India. Some Muslim clerics protested the misuse of the tenets of Islam for "a marriage of convenience".
For this act of bigamy, he was disowned by his father, Bhajan Lal, who was the former Chief Minister of Haryana State.
On 29 January 2009, Mohan left Ms. Bali, claiming that he still loved his first wife and his children and wanted to reunite with them. He is believed to have moved to the Haryana city of Gurgaon at that time.
Ms. Bali is a former Assistant Advocate General of Haryana who left her employment to marry Mohan in December 2008.
However, he converted back to Hinduism after a while. Chander Mohan was readmitted to the Bishnoi community at a brief ceremony held at the Bishnoi Mandir in Hisar on 28 July 2009 in presence of religious leaders.
