The Supreme Court on Monday will hear the Kerala Love Jihad case, with Hadiya alias Akhila present before it.

The case of the 25-year-old convert has generated severe outrage across the country.

In Delhi she will be put up at the Kerala House, where four rooms have been booked for the party from Kerala. "In the society we live in, from what to study to who their children must get married to, parents want to decide on everything; though, this has been changing slowly, we have a long way to go , As Reported By Hindu".

The court in the last hearing had said that before examining the latter issue, it would like to ascertain if Hadiya had voluntarily converted to Islam and her views on her marriage.

For her father, who has been making every attempt to thwart Hadiya's freedom to choose how she lives her life, this seems to have done little to change his mind.

Today, A Raghunath, the lawyer of her father KM Asokan, told NDTV: "Any statement coming from such a mind (Hadiya's) can not be accepted".

The Kerala High Court annulled the marriage of Hadiya and Jahan in May this year this year after her parents alleged that she was forced to convert. She is heavily indoctrinated. Divan, appearing for woman's father K M Ashokan, claimed that Jahan was a radicalised man and several organisations like Popular Front of India were involved in radicalisation of society. Shafin Jahan had moved the Supreme Court against the Kerala High Court order which annulled their marriage.

Meanwhile, the Kerala government on October 7 told the Supreme Court that its police conducted a thorough investigation into her conversion and subsequent marriage to Jahan and did not find material warranting the transfer of probe to the National Investigation Agency. Hadiya's parents also accuse their daughter embracing Islam as radicalization. "Her response can be taken only after she comes out of the mental kidnapping that she has gone through".

The case is now under the consideration of the Supreme Court, which had ordered the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to look into it.
