SDPI Welcomes Supreme Court Judgment on Hadiya-Shafin Case
Hadiya free to live with her husband: Supreme Court
Supreme Court upholds Hadiya’s marriage, sets aside Kerala HC order
New Delhi, 8 March 2018: Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) welcomes the judgment of honorable supreme court upholding Hadiya and Shafin Jahan’s marriage by setting aside the May 2017 Kerala High Court’s draconian order annulling their marriage. SDPI National President A. Sayeed said in a press statement that this judgment upholds the rights and freedom of every individual to self-decision and privilege of their life. However, the Supreme Court’s order to continue the probe by NIA into the accusations of alleged ‘love jihad’ is still a thorn in the playing ground.
Sayeed said, the communal forces in the country have been falsely propagating the figment of ‘Love Jihad’ only to spread enmity between the communities for their political gains. They practice these models to create fear and pressure in the civil society as their tricks to curb the freedom and rights of the individuals. He said, the judiciary might be well aware of such conspiracies, but still, prolonged probe of these fabricated designs like ‘Love Jihad”, etc. will impact adversities on dignity and esteem of communities.
The Supreme Court’s judgment on Hadiya-Shefin Jahan case upholds the rights and freedom of every individual to self-decision and privilege of their life –
A Sayeed, President, SDPI
Sayeed said, a fair and transparent probe is actually needed as to why and who is behind such an evil intended propaganda. The honorable court has to give a strict and clear directions to the investigation agencies to pursue the probe in a transparent and honest line.
