KM Ashokan, the man who relentlessly fought against his daughter’s marriage to a Muslim man, has now joined in BJP.
It need be recalled that case of Hadiya is that of Kerala woman whose marriage to a Muslim man generated questions on forced conversions and the so called love jihad.
At the time Ashokan had asked the Kerala High Court to annul his daughter’s marriage claiming she was brainwashed.

The Left government of Pinarayi Vijayan is gearing up to provide security to women who wish to enter the hill shrine after the Supreme Court ended its traditional ban on women between the age of 10 and 50 years.
Hadiya, born Akhila Ashokan, had converted to Islam when she was 23 and months later, married Shafin Jehan, who had returned to India after working in Oman for a few years.
The two had met through a matrimonial website affiliated to an organization.>
