Kerala Love Jihad case: I want to go with my husband,says Hadiya

Kerala love jihad case: Hadiya to appear before SC to present her side on alleged forced conversion to Islam

'Conversion case': Hadiya Shafin to depose before SC

The Kerala high court had annulled Hadiya's marriage after her father approached the court expressing fears that his daughter will be taken overseas for alleged terrorist activities.

On Saturday afternoon, she was moved from her home near here at Vaikom in a convoy of police vehicles to Kochi International Airport to take the evening flight to Delhi.

As Hadiya, or Akhila Ashokan, left for New Delhi to appear before the Supreme Court in the Kerala "love jihad" case, she said nobody forced her to convert.

Nahargarh Fort Death: Is it connected to Padmavati? Some unanswered questions
Earlier in the day, a local jeweller Chetan Saini was found hanging at Jaipur's famous Nahargarh fort main gate. Police told BBC Hindi that they were investigating to determine whether it was a suicide or murder.

In Delhi she will be put up at the Kerala House, where four rooms have been booked for the party from Kerala. "I want to live with my husband Sheffin Jahan", Hadiya told media as quoted by NDTV.

Shefin Jahan, on the other hand, alleged that Hadiya's parents were forcing her to reconvert to Hinduism. While Hadiya said she married him willingly - and that the wedding was arranged by her Muslim guardian Sainaba - her father has portrayed the wedding as sinister, claiming Shafin has links to the radical group PFI. Speaking at "Voice for Hadiya", a programme organised as part of Free Hadiya Movement, retired judge of Madras High Court D. Hariparanthaman, said each individual has the right to choose who they want to get married to and there should be no interference whatsoever. She is heavily indoctrinated.

The Supreme Court on Monday will also deal with the plea filed by Hadiya/Akhila's father for an in-camera hearing of the case.

Winter Session of Parliament to be held from 15 December
The decision to extend the session beyond Christmas will give at least 14 working days to the government to push its agenda. The session will end on January 5.

Meanwhile, the Kerala government on October 7 told the Supreme Court that its police conducted a thorough investigation into her conversion and subsequent marriage to Jahan and did not find material warranting the transfer of probe to the National Investigation Agency. The court is expected to ask Hadiya searching questions to determine her state of mind and plans for the future. "Her response can be taken only after she comes out of the mental kidnapping that she has gone through". When Shafin approached the Supreme Court, the apex court sided with the Kerala HC, and further ordered and NIA probe in the case.

Her wedding to a Muslim man, Shafin Jahan, created further complications in the case.

Japan is not a fan of the Xbox One X
But the very fact that I can continue to recommend the One S is a testament to Microsoft's new, generation-less gaming strategy'. However, Microsoft's offer for the $189 S console includes one free game and a 1-month Xbox Game Pass Trial.
