Kerala Love Jihad case: SC to examine High Court can nullify Hadiya’s marriage
Written by Pallavi Parmar

On Tuesday Supreme Court stated on Kerala Love Jihad case that father cannot dictate the personal life of 24-year-old while hearing the plea of Shafin Jahan from Kerala. Also, the apex court said that it would examine the question as the Kerala High Court can’t nullify the marriage of Muslim man with Hindu woman or the people who convert to Islam by exercising its power under the writ jurisdiction before trying nuptial knot. As per the reports, a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra will hear the fresh plea of Jahan who is seeking to recall its earlier order that NIA asked to probe.

The Kerala High Court nullified the marriage terming as Love Jihad following which approached the apex court. Shafin Jahan has claimed in his pledge that Kerala Human rights commission has received many complaints concerning the detention of woman at her father’s house. He also claimed that woman has made it clear that she accepted Islam on her own will, but later after the May 24 order of the High court, she detained against her will and also violated the rights.

Last December Shafin Jahan married to Hindu woman had now moved to the apex court and High court to nullify his marriage. He also said that it was an insult to the independence of women in the country. And the High Court has described the case as the example of love Jihad.
