Hadiya case an instance of 'psychological kidnapping': NIA

Twenty four-year-old Hadiya married a Muslim Shefin Jehan last December. Her father however moved court saying she was ‘indoctrinated’ in a case of ‘love jihad

If there are really 89 such cases in Kerala, suggesting a pattern of indoctrination and radicalisation as suggested by the NIA, investigators must bring out the truth.

The apex court observed that the consent of the girl is prime in this regard, adding that she is a major.

The Aadhaar case relates to the mandatory linking of the biometric ID to government welfare schemes, while in the Kerala Love Jihad case, the top court opened sealed envelopes handed over by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

In May, the Kerala High Court had annulled the marriage of Hadiya and ordered her to return to her parents in the Kottayam district. The bench observed that the court can not take a decision based on public opinion and ordered state government to continue with providing security to the girl. "She should not be confined in this manner, only a criminal can be", Supreme Court lawyer Karuna Nundy told Al Jazeera. According to some media reports, Hadiya has stated that she fears being killed.

In the controversial Kerala love Jihad case, Hadiya's father welcomed the Supreme Court order to produce hadiya before the court on November 27th.

The bench said this as Divan laboured to persuade the court that Hadiya's marriage to Jahan was part of larger game being played by the Popular Front through its student and youth wings.




She said that the case paints an entire minority community as "aggressors and manipulators", referring to allegations of "Love Jihad". She is under police vigil, the sources said.

The CJI asked: "Is there any law by which a girl can never fall in love with a criminal?"

A three-judge bench presided over by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the court will go by language of law and not impulse or pulse of society.

However, Easwar said that the full video has not been released because it contains excerpts involving communal issues. It is alleged that the woman was recruited by Islamic State's mission in Syria and Jahan was only a stooge. I know my father is getting angry.

Divan went on to submit that "Kerala has a huge contingent of people who have joined ISIS", a contention that evoked sharp objections from senior advocate Kapil Sibal, who is appearing for Hadiya's husband.
