India Supreme Court restores ‘love jihad’ marriage

NEW DELHI: India’s Supreme Court yesterday ruled that a woman who converted to Islam should be allowed to live with her Muslim husband in a case that sparked debate about inter-religious relationships and women’s rights. Judges overturned a lower court’s ruling that the December 2016 marriage between Akhila Ashokan and Shafin Jahan was illegal. Ashokan’s Hindu father won a court order last May to nullify the marriage and return the 25-year-old woman to her parents’ home, alleging that she had been forced to wed and convert.
That ruling by the high court in southern Kerala state outraged women’s rights campaigners. Jahan challenged the order, and the Supreme Court said: “In this case, we feel that the high court shouldn’t have annulled the marriage.
