Hadiya wants an end to controversies, apologises to parents

Hadiya wants an end to controversies, apologises to parents

Her joy comes after the top court had restored Hadiya-Shafin Jahan marriage, which was annulled by Kerala High Court a year ago.

The Kerala High Court in May, last year, annulled the marriage on a complaint by her father terming it as an instance of "love jihad".

Hadiya, now a student of homoeopathy in Salem, said the apex court order has given her two types of freedom, to live according to Islam and marry a person of her choice. "They are using them (parents) for political benefits", she added.

It was PFI women's wing president Sainaba who facilitated Hadiya's conversion and found her a groom.

"My parents are very dear to me".

Should Oregon State advance, it will play on Sunday against the victor of No. 3 seed Tennessee and No. 14 seed Liberty. PT Friday in the first round, and with a win would face either No. 7 Green Bay or No. 10 Minnesota on Sunday in Eugene.

Kerala-based Hadiya, an alleged victim of love jihad, today said she was grateful to the Supreme Court for allowing her to reunite with her husband. "When I came out after six months, it was a new world". "My responsibility to parents begins with my birth, and as a true Islam follower, I would take care of them". "Even psychiatrists came to to give lessons on Hindu Sanathana Dharma". "I don't think my parents would want to harm me but they were under the influence of some anti-national forces", she was quoted as saying by Times of India. Hadiya revealed that several Muslim organisations she approached initially for helping her convert to Islam turned a blind eye to her request. "Had my parents stood by me when I became a Muslim, I would not have faced this situation". "What is wrong in choosing the name Hadiya?" she asked. She said that after the Supreme Court verdict last week, she hadn't contacted her parents.

Hadiya, 25, and Shafin, who arrived in Kerala on Friday night on a three-day trip, met PFI head P. Aboobacker at the outfit's Kozhikode office and made a brief appearance before the media.

"I am happy that I got freedom now".

The Supreme Court on March 8 restored Hadiya's marriage with Shafin Jahan stating that she was free to live with her husband and "pursue her endeavours".
