Hadiya Refutes her Father’s Recent Allegations that She is being held in “Illegal Detention”

The Supreme Court issued a historic decision regarding the autonomy of adult women as a result of the Kerala woman’s conversion to Islam and subsequent marriage to a Muslim man.

Hadiya, the Kerala woman whose marriage to a Muslim man and conversion to Islam led to a historic Supreme Court decision regarding the autonomy of adult women, has refuted her father’s recent claim that she is being held against her will by her husband.

The homeopathic physician reportedly announced in a video on Saturday that she had divorced Shafin Jahan, her first husband, and gotten married again, according to the Indian Express. Everyone has the right to get married and end a relationship, according to the Constitution. In society, it is a typical occurrence. In my situation, I don’t understand why society is becoming agitated. I’m an adult with the ability to make decisions. I ended the marriage (with Jahan) when I was unable to carry it out. I’ve since wed someone else of my choosing. I live as a Muslim and am happy. As per the report, she stated, “My parents are also aware about the remarriage.”

The video was made public the day after Hadiya’s homeopathy clinic was closed and her father, K.M. Ashokan, filed a habeas corpus petition in the Kerala high court, claiming he was unable to get in touch with her over the phone.

But Hadiya stated on Saturday that she was unaware of her father’s motivation for moving the high court. She said there was no need to make her new partner’s details public, but she withheld them. Indian Express reports that she relocated from Mallapuram to Thiruvananthapuram.

She said, “My father has created troubles that make it difficult for me to live,” as reported by Hindustan Times. My life has become challenging due to cyberattacks that I have experienced. For all these years, the forces of Sangh Parivar have used my father as a tool. That he is letting himself be used in that way is regrettable.

Hadiya refuted rumors that she had turned off her phone, saying that she was “in constant touch with her parents.” I don’t think it needs to be brought up again because I’ve remarried. I’m a responsible adult who can make my own decisions,” she declared.

Hadiya, a native of Kottayam who was drawn to Islam as a student in Tamil Nadu, came from a Hindu family. She married Jahan after converting to that faith. In 2016, her father filed a habeas corpus plea contesting the union. In order to keep her “prevented from being a further victim of love jihad,” the high court declared the marriage null and void and mandated that she be placed in the protective custody of her Hindu parents or another institution. The conspiracy theory, which holds that there is a plot to marry Hindu women into Islam, was perhaps used for the first time by a constitutional court in this ruling.

In March 2018, the Supreme Court permitted her to live with her husband Jahan and reinstated their marriage. The Supreme Court gave the National Investigation Agency (NIA) permission to look into the incident and determine whether she was coerced into becoming an Islamist. Later, after discovering no evidence to back up this claim, the agency closed the case.
