My initial guess is those functions(f*g restricted to H and f restrict * g restrict) would differ by a compactly supported function in G.Hence their fourier transforms would vary by a entire, exponential function by paley wiener theorem. please 4give for any mistakes as i just made a guess..shall check into details and try coming up with a more precise ans :)

Reiter's book, which was mentioned by Mr. Shravan Kumar, relates a few properties of an integrable function on a locally compact abelian group and its restriction to a closed subgroup. But I could not find an answer to my question in this book. Infact the question arose after reading this book. I request for some more references or details.
