Love Jihad: Hadiya told to appear in SC on Nov 27

Love Jihad: Hadiya told to appear in SC on Nov 27”

In the Kerala love jihad case, a consent of a woman is the most important aspect that should be considered, the Supreme Court said on Monday after hearing the case.

The case pertains to Hadiya/Akhila-a Hindu woman who converted to Islam and married Shafin Jahan.

Mahatma Gandhi's great-grandson Tushar Gandhi had moved the Supreme Court, opposing a plea which seeks reopening of the Mahatma's assassination case. The Article relates to special rights and privileges of the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir. Chief Justice of India Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud will be hearing the case. It also empowers the state's legislature to frame any law without attracting a challenge on grounds of violating the Right to Equality of people from other states or any other right under the Indian Constitution.

Meanwhile, the NIA has submitted an investigative report to the apex court on the emerging trend of religious conversion among young Hindu girls to Islam, reports TOI. "The question is whether a High Court, on an Article 226 petition, can annul the marriage", CJI Misra had said.

The girl's father approached the Kerala High Court which annulled the marriage, calling it a case of "love jihad", and directed that Hadiya returns to her parents. It was alleged that the 25-year-old woman was recruited by Islamic State's mission in Syria and Jahan was only a stooge.

The Supreme Court will be addressing three prominent cases - the petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the politically contentious Article 35A, whether linking of Aadhaar to various schemes should be made mandatory and the Kerala Love Jihad issue - on Monday, October 30.

"The petitioner is from a simple god-fearing and patriotic family".
