From ancient times till the arrival of the Mughals, marriages in India used to take place during the day. But only after Muslim invaders attacked India, Hindus were forced to break many of their ancient traditions.
Many atrocities were committed on Indians after Muslim invaders encroached upon India. These invaders used to reach there at the time of marriage of Hindus and used to loot. During Akbar's reign, when atrocities were at their peak, Mughal soldiers would forcefully pick up Hindu girls and hand them over to their masters.
For the first time in known Indian history, two Brahmin sisters named Sundari and Mundri were married at night, who were married by Gurjar Dulla Bhatti to Brahmin youths under his patronage. And that day was the festival of Lohri.
At that time Dulla Bhatti had taken up arms against tyranny. Dulla Bhatti rescued many such girls from the Mughals and got them married to Hindu boys.
After that Hindus were forced to marry in the dark of night to avoid the terror of Muslim invaders. But even while getting married in the night, it is kept in mind that even if the dance-singing, feast, jaimala, etc. may take place in the night, but the rounds with Vedic mantras should be done only after the breaking of dawn in the morning.
The tradition which started from Punjab was ended in Punjab itself.After the rule of Maharaja Ranjit Singh from Phillaur to Kabul, his general Harisingh Nalwa had announced to openly marry during the day according to the Sanatan Vedic tradition and give them protection.Under the patronage of Harisingh Nalwa, Hindus started marriages in broad daylight with bandwagoners.
Since then the practice of marriage in Punjab again started during the day. Most of the marriages in Punjab still take place during the day.
Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Andhra, Karnataka, Kerala, Assam, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, and other states are also slowly rolling back to their roots. Hence marriages take place during the day in these regions.
Harisingh Nalwa made Hindus return home to Muslims, imposed Jizya tax on Muslims, re-established the traditions of Hindu religion, that is why he is called the incarnation of "Pushyamitra Shunga".
All marriages are performed in the best Muhurta, Brahmamuhurta. Dhruvatara is presented as a symbol of stability, which is best visible in Brahmamuhurta itself.But the witness is believed to be the symbol of the Sun, Agni. That is why there is a method of going around the fire.
Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the founder of Arya Samaj, has also completely denied night marriage in his book Satyarth Prakash. According to Pandit Acharya also, marriages in the Hindu Gayatri family are performed in the day itself.
Even today, we the people of India, especially the people of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Bihar, while it has been 400 years since the Mughals left here, but even today we are running it as a tradition.
