Supreme Court Sets Aside Kerala HC Decision, Restores Hadiya's Marriage

Hadiya Shefin with Shefin Jahan

In an affidavit filed before the top court, Hadiya said that she had married Jahan on her own will and sought the court's permission to "live as his wife".

The Supreme Court on Thursday restored the marriage of Hadiya setting aside the Kerala High Court which had annulled the validity of her marriage.

The Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said, "Whether this marriage is a disguise (to commit crime) is a separate issue".

For the first time ever, an global airline can use Saudi airspace to fly to Israel. Israel, Saudi Arabia and India are parties to the convention.

The order also referred to Hadiya personally appearing before the Supreme Court on November 27 and admitting to her marriage with Shafin Jahan, who had challenged the High Court order that nullified the marriage. "We can't stand in the (their) way", said Justice D Y Chandrachud as senior counsel Shyam Divan justified the Kerala High Court annulling Hadiya's marriage.

Hadiya filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that she is a Muslim and wanted to remain as a Muslim. The NIA has also told the court that the two individuals have already left the country and "look-out circulars" have been issued to bring them back. "I will try to convince the court about it once again", he said. Jahan on September 20 approached the apex court seeking recall of its order directing the NIA to investigate the controversial case of conversion and marriage of Hadiya.

Mr. Asokan's affidavit had mentioned that Ms. Shirin and her husband Mr. Fasal had interacted with Ms. Hadiya in 2015 and even tried to send her to Yemen.

The Supreme Court of India finally made a decision on the infamous, seemingly-endless Hadiya case!

Granting "absolute liberty" to the 25-year-old, the top court, however, said that the ongoing probe by National Investigation Agency (NIA) into the case will continue, Bar And Bench reported.

Her family alleged she was brainwashed as part of an anti-Hindu conspiracy, prompting a lower court to annul the marriage. It ruled that Hadiya can complete studies and "freely follow her pursuits".
