Kerala love jihad: Mother drugged food, cops ignored claim, says Hadia

SC says Kerala High Court simply assumed that Hadiya was a vulnerable adult and decided to nullify her marriage

The marriage was annulled by the Kerala High Court, which said it was "sham".

A Kerala girl, at the eye of a so-called love jihad storm, on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that her mother used to drug her food when she was in the 11-month custody of her Hindu parents after the Kerala HC quashed her marriage with her Muslim husband.

The court scheduled the next hearing on March 8. The CJI said that all averments unrelated to marriage of Hadiya in her affidavit will now be expunged.

Both had argued that indoctrination and psychological influence are exceptions to consent but the bench said all these issues will be dealt with later.

The apex court had yesterday refused to defer today's hearing in the case as was requested by the father of Hadiya, who is the woman at the centre of the case. "The inaction of the police reminded me that the police would not question whatever crimes take place against me", she further said. Earlier in January, the Supreme Court had said it can not question Hadiya's choice of husband and directed the NIA to not probe her "marital status". On 27 November past year, the apex court had freed Hadiya from her parents' custody and sent her to college to pursue her studies, even as she had pleaded that she should be allowed to go with her husband.

To this Divan replied that if a charade has been played to escape the court's jurisdiction under Article 226, then the court must exercise its powers taking the larger picture into consideration.

Appearing for Shafin Jahan, senior counsel Kapil Sibal submitted that nothing remains to be heard in the matter, and therefore, judgment should be reserved.

It is why after the woman was interviewed by the judges in the open court, the bench chose to take her out of the parental custody. She also said that Jahan had no role in her conversion and that he came into her life only after she embraced Islam.

The apex court had on 23 January made it clear that the National Investigation Agency can not probe the marital status of Hadiya and Jahan.

Salem: Hadiya, the 24-year-old woman who made headlines after she converted to Islam, on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that her mother used to drug her food when she was in the custody of her parents in Kerala's Kottayam district.

She had claimed that her husband was wrongly portrayed as a terrorist by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and he has nothing to do with the Middle East-based terror group Islamic State.

"I respectfully reiterate that I am a Muslim and I want to continue to live as a Muslim.I have been under confinement without the freedom that I am entitled to". The court further said that the high court simply assumed that Hadiya is a vulnerable adult and made a decision to nullify her marriage.
