Supreme Court to hear ‘Kerala love jihad case’ today
The much hyped case of Kerala ‘Love Jihad’ in which girl Hadiya converted from Hinduism to Islam and also married a Muslim Shafin Jahan will be heard today in the Supreme Court.
It need be recalled that it was on Wednesday that the Apex Court had refused to adjourn Thursday’s hearing in the case.
Hadiya’s father had requested Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra to defer the hearing scheduled to be on February 22 but it was not allowed by the court.
It was in November last year that Shafin Jahan, who is now husband of Hadiya, filed a complaint with the police alleging that attempts are being made to reconvert his wife to Hinduism.
He said that this is being done ahead of her appearance in the Supreme Court.
Earlier, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had filed a sealed report in the Supreme Court in connection with the case.
Hadiya is now with her parents, who have alleged that her marriage to a Muslim man is a case of so-called ‘love jihad’.>
