Hadiya, 25, has been asked to appear in the top court on Monday for an interaction with the judges - to explain if she married Shafi Jehan a year ago of her own free will.
Their marriage was annulled in May by the Kerala High Court after her father, KM Ashokan, said that his daughter was among a series of vulnerable young Hindu women who are being recruited by terror groups through love and marriage. There is a pattern of "love jihad" in Kerala, the country's top investigating agency told the Supreme Court in August before being granted permission to deconstruct Hadiya's marriage.
A few weeks ago, delegates from the National Commission of Women visited Hadiya in her father's house, where she was legally ordered to live after her marriage was annulled. The team said that she appeared safe and healthy. Their house call followed a video shared by an activist, Rahul Easwar, in which she accused her father of physically abusing her.
Hadiya's husband, Shafin Jehan, was interrogated last week for six hours by the National Investigation Agency or NIA. He has challenged the annulment of his marriage as well as the counter-terror agency's scrutiny of it. Shafi Jehan, who met Hadiya through an ad she placed on an Islamist matrimonial website is affiliated to the Popluar Front of India, a Kerala outfit accused of terror links by the NIA.
His lawyers have pointed out that the Kerala High Court has said all inter-faith marriages need not be seen as "love jihad."
