    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 196/191=D/1429)

     

    The Hindu women wear manglasutra as part of their religion; therefore it is not right for Muslim women to wear it:

    قال النبي صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم: من تشبہ بقوم فھو منھم (أبوداؤد 559، کتاب اللباس)

    وقال القاري: من شبہ نفسہ بالکفار مثلاً في اللباس وغیرہ أو بالفساق أو بالفجار أو بأھل التصوف الصلحاء الأبرار فھو منھم أي في الإثم والخیر (مرقاۃ 8:155، کتاب اللباس، الفصل الثاني)

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
