Reacting to the Supreme Court's verdict on the controversial Kerala love Jihad case, father of Hadiya said he welcomes the decision to produce his daughter before the court on November 27. He said he will produce his daughter before the Supreme Court on November 27.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA), which was tasked by the top court to probe whether there was a wider pattern of alleged "love jihad" in the case, told the court today that there "is a well-oiled machinery involving radicalisation and love jihad cases in Kerala".
The case is about 24-year-old homeopathic doctor Hadiya Shafin, born Akhila Ashokan, who married Shafin Jahan without her family's consent last December. The court eventually annulled Hadiya's marriage and ordered her to return to her parents's home under police guard.
Recently, while hearing a matter, the Kerala High Court observed: "All inter-religious marriages can not be termed love jihad".
1000 miles per hour Bloodhound SSC makes first public test run
For the initial record attempt, the Bloodhound will use a single monopropellant rocket which can produce around 40kN of thrust. Tests at those speeds will give more critical feedback about the design, including how the wheels perform.
She said that the case paints an entire minority community as "aggressors and manipulators", referring to allegations of "Love Jihad". I will be killed anytime, tomorrow or the day after, I am sure. Consent is manipulated by indoctrination and radicalisation. I have told that to her.
"There is nothing in law that stops someone from falling in love and marrying a criminal". The new chief justice even asked if there was any scope in law for the Supreme Court to move beyond the proceedings in the High Court and order an NIA probe, which was mentioned neither in the petition moved by Hadiya's husband Jahan nor in the High Court order. I know my father is getting angry.
Senior advocate Shyam Divan, who is appearing on behalf of Haditya's father Asokan, reiterated the call for constitutional obligation. "They have students, preachers, psychologists etc and they radicalize impressionable minds.The question is do courts respond to such radicalization or do they remain silent?" Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the husband, opposed the plea.
"Unfortunately, the next hearing will only be held on 27 November, which will prolong Hadiya Jahan's five-month-long unlawful confinement at her parents' house for another month".
