It was a much awaited decision but it finally came on Thursday.
The Supreme Court allowed Muslim convert Hadiya to live with her husband Shafin Jahan thereby setting aside a Kerala High Court order.
It need be mentioned that the top court said Hadiya was free to pursue her future endeavours in accordance with the law.
The decision came about as a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said the Kerala High Court should not have annulled the marriage.
The matter came to the fore when Shafin Jahan, who claimed to be the husband of Hadiya, had challenged a Kerala High Court order annulling his marriage with her and sending the woman to her parents’ custody.
