Kerala 'Love Jihad' Case: Supreme Court orders Hadiya to be produced in court on November 27

In the case of Kerala's well-known 'Love Jihad' case, the Supreme Court today ordered the girl to be produced before it for an interaction on November 27. The court observed that the consent of the girl for the marriage is paramount as she is an adult by law and no law in India prohibits a person from loving a criminal.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and DY Chandradhud, asked senior advocate Shyam Dhivan, representing the father of the woman, to ensure that she is present that day for interaction with the bench, which is likely to ascertain her mental stage and whether she had given free consent to the marriage.

Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh told the Court that the NIA has found in the investigation that a systematic machinery is involved to target the young Hindu girls and train them hardcore for jihad.

Divan, appearing for girl's father K.M. Ashokan, claimed the alleged husband of his daughter is a radicalised man and several organisations like Popular Front of India (PFI) are involved in the radicalistation of the society.

Senior advocate, kapil Sibal, appearing for her husband Shafin Jahan, opposed the NIA's submission and that of the woman's father.  

The woman, a Hindu, had converted to Islam and later married Shafin Jahan. It was alleged that the woman was recruited by Islamic State's mission in Syria and Jahan was only a stooge. [PTI inputs]
