"My name is Revathi. I want to hold on to that name - forever. I want to drop the name Siti Fatimah," said M Revathi, 29, sporting a pottu (Hindu symbol) on her forehead.
Born Siti Fatimah Abdul Karim to Muslim convert parents, she was called Revathi Masoosai by the grandmother who raised her. She married to V Suresh in 2004 according to Hindu rites and has a 18-month-old daughter.
In January this year, Revathi was detained at the Malacca Syariah High Court when she attended a hearing over her application to have her official religious status be recognised as a Hindu.
She was detained at the court and subsequently held at the Ulu Yam religious rehabilitation camp in Selangor for six months until she was freed early this month.
In March, the Islamic authorities seized her daughter from her husband and handed the child to Revathi's Muslim mother.
The following is a collection of malaysiakini reports detailing Revathi's struggle to be recognised as a Hindu.
