India's top court upholds freedom of choice in 'love jihad' case

Hadiya Jahan, who is in her 20s, was born into a Hindu family, but converted to Islam and married a Muslim man.

The Supreme Court on Thursday scrapped the Kerala High Court's order and restored Hadiya's marriage with Shafin Jahan.

Indeed, even the Supreme Court has said that while Hadiya's marriage is valid, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) can pursue to "its logical conclusion" its probe into the "love jihad" angle. In a judgment rendered on 25 May a year ago, a Division Bench of Kerala High Court had called her marriage a "sham", and had annulled it, directi... The apex court freed her from her father's custody and ordered her institution to allow her to continue her education in November past year. The probe into the cases of Love Jihad by a well oiled network in Kerala would however continue, the Bench said. "She can complete studies, live with whosoever she wants".

The SC said that Hadiya can't be in anyone's custody and she is free to follow her pursuits.

Hadiya filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that she is a Muslim and wanted to remain as a Muslim.

The Supreme Court in India has ruled that an Indian woman who has been embroiled in an inter-religious marriage row may now live with her husband.

Five months later in May 2017, the court nullified Hadiya's marriage and sent her back to the custody of her parents.

During the hearing, the SC bench reiterated that the court can not intervene in the case of a marriage between two consenting adults.

The Court had earlier stated that it would pronounce the operative part of its judgment in the case at 2 pm today and that the detailed order would be made public later.
