It happened because I embraced Islam: Hadiya

Shafin Jahan-Hadia

Calicut (Kerala)

Two days after the Supreme Court upheld her marriage with Shafin Jahan, Hadiya, earlier Akhila Ashokan today said that all this happened because she embraced Islam.

“The Constitution gives all the freedom to choose their religion, which is a fundamental right of every citizen and all this happened because I embraced Islam,” said Hadiya while interacting with the media persons here.

Hadiya and her husband arrived here from Salem where she is studying.

“With the Supreme Court upholding our marriage, we feel we have got freedom,” Hadiya said here. The apex court on March 8, set aside an order of the Kerala High Court that annulled their marriage.

Hadiya, 24, earlier Akhila Ashokan, embraced Islam and married Shafin Jahan, a Muslim. Hadiya’s father alleged that she was forcibly converted by groups with links to terrorist outfits.

“It was only the PFI that supported us all through our troubled times and what’s more surprising is that two Muslim organisations whom we approached refused to help us,” added Hadiya who will be in Kerala for three more days before returning to Salem in Tamil Nadu where she is studying.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud on Thursday said: “Hadiya alias Akhila Asokan is at liberty to pursue her future endeavours according to law.”

However, the court also said the National Investigation Agency (NIA) would continue its probe into the criminal dimension of the case, if any.
