Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah and his family.

What you have to do is repent
to Allah, may He be exalted, say the Shahaadatayn and come back to Islam,
because a person becomes a kaafir the moment he says that he will apostatise
in the future, or he decides to apostatise, or he says, “If such and such
happens, I will apostatise,” because adhering firmly to Islam is essential,
and any hesitation concerning that constitutes kufr. 

An-Nawawi (may Allah have
mercy on him) said: Deciding to become a kaafir in the future constitutes
kufr in the present. Hesitancy about whether to commit kufr or not
constitutes kufr in the present, as does making it conditional upon some
future event, such as saying, “If my wealth is destroyed or if my child
dies, I will become a Jew or a Christian.”  And approval of kufr is kufr. If
a kaafir who wants to become Muslim asks him to prompt him to say the word
of Tawheed and he does not do that, or he indicates that he should not
become Muslim, or he suggests to a Muslim that he should apostatise, then he
is a kaafir.

End quote from Rawdat at-Taalibeen,

 In al-Mawsoo‘ah al-Fiqhiyyah
(42/307) it says: The fuqaha’ are of the view that if a Muslim thinks of
becoming a kaafir, or he has doubts about the Oneness of Allah or
Prophethood or the Day of Resurrection, or he intended to stop being a
Muslim, or he is hesitant as to whether he should become a kaafir or not, or
he decides that he will become a kaafir tomorrow or in the future, he goes
out of Islam and becomes an apostate immediately, because developing doubts
contradicts the firm intention to be a Muslim. End quote. 

It is not permissible for a
man to have a relationship with a non-mahram woman, and it is not
permissible for him to marry a Hindu woman unless she becomes Muslim. 

You have seen for yourself
the consequences of this haraam relationship, which led you to speak words
of kufr. Beware and be very cautious of such relationships. Pray a great
deal for forgiveness (istighfaar) and do a lot of righteous deeds in the
hope that Allah may forgive you and accept your repentance. 

And Allah knows best.
