Hadiya, a 25-year-old homeopathic doctor had converted to Islam last year after her marriage with Shafin Jahan. On her father’s claim, the Kerala High Court had accepted that Shafin Jahan has links with terror-outfits. Her father had also alleged that she was forcefully converted by her friends.
Hadiya was put in the ‘protective custody’ of her parents after the Kerala High Court annulled her marriage with Shafin Jahan on charges of ‘love jihad’.
She can be heard pleading with activist Rahul Eashwar in a video that he had shot on August 17.
“You need to get me out. I will be killed anytime, tomorrow or the day after, I am sure. I know my father is getting angry. When I walk, he is hitting and kicking me,” Akhila Ashokan or Hadiya can be heard saying in the second video that was released on Thursday.
The Supreme Court had ordered a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to find out if there is a pattern of ‘love jihad’ in the case. The apex court had earlier this year also questioned how a High Court can annul the marriage between two consenting adults.
In the first video that Rahul had released, Hadiya had said: “Is this how I should live? Is this my life?” She reportedly has not been allowed to step out of her house ever since the high court gave her custody to her parents. There are police officers stationed outside her house too.
