Happy that I got freedom: Hadiya thanks SC for restoring her marriage

Hadiya and husband Shefin Jahan in Kozhikode on Monday

The Supreme Court on March 8 restored Hadiya's marriage with Shafin Jahan stating that she was free to live with her husband. Hadiya revealed that several Muslim organisations she approached initially for helping her convert to Islam turned a blind eye to her request.

Kerala High Court had last May annulled Hadiya's marriage on a petition from her father Asokan, who claimed she had been radicalised and brainwashed into conversion and marriage so that she could be sent overseas to join a terrorist outfit. The SC had observed that a marriage can not be nullified on the basis of habeas corpus. So more than anyone else, I know my parents.My parents also need some time to come to terms with all that has happened.

"I will never blame my parents for mistreating me", she said. I have embraced Islam as a route for marriage.

Hadiya added that she would like to speak to her parents again, but would give them time to come to terms with reality. She started the interaction saying, "I am an ordinary girl from a very normal middle-class family, and hence, my answers and queries will be as normal as I am". He said they were planning to meet their relatives soon and a detailed press conference would be held in Kozhikode before Ms. Hadiya leaves for Coimbatore. "Had my parents stood by me when I became a Muslim, I would not have faced this situation".

Aadhaar linking: SC extends deadline indefinitely
In December, the court extended the last date for completion of the process to link Aadhaar with services to March 31. The order makes it clear that one does not have to link it until the Supreme Court passes its verdict in the case.

Hadiya is pursuing her mandatory house surgeon internship at the Sivaraj Homeopathic Medical College and Research Institute in Tamil Nadu's Salem district for completing her Bachelor in Homoepathy Medicine and Surgery (BHMS) course.

The apex court had in August a year ago asked the National Investigation Agency to probe the case of conversion and marriage of Hadiya, as the agency claimed a "pattern" was emerging in Kerala.

"I lost two years of my life since my parents moved the habeas corpus plea in the high court challenging my marriage".

The high court had in May previous year annulled the marriage terming it as an instance of "love jihad", following which Jahan had approached the apex court.
