if both are adults you can get married . get married under provisions of Special marriage act . both can retain their religion . disclose all facts to your parents . obtain their approval for the marriage
If both of you have attained the age of majority then you may marry in the court in accordance with the provisions of Special Marriage Act. There is no legal hindrance in this.
there is no legal issue in marriage of adults

Hi, you can marry her according to the provisions of the Special Marriage Act.
Be bold and frankly speak to your parents. Law permits the adults to marry. Be careful, they may attack you.
