Women's panel to submit Hadiya report in SC

Supreme Court asks if Kerala High Court exceeded its reach in alleged 'Love Jihad case'

A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra posed the question during hearing of a petition filed by Shafin Jahan (27), the man who married Akhila, a Hindu girl, after she converted to Islam and became Hadia.

The bench also wondered whether the 24-year-old woman could be placed in her father's custody.

The court said, it will analyse Kerala's HC decision whether a court can annul an inter-religion marriage if it has been performed with the consent of the two partners and the Hindu woman had converted to Islam before tying the knot with the Muslim man. "This order sends awful signals all over the world", he said. Ashokan alleged it was a fraudulent conversion. That is the fundamental principle of law on which the argument should be based.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday questioned a verdict that led to the annulment or cancellation of a young Kerala woman's marriage to a Muslim.

When SC was told that the father of the girl was also against the marriage, CJI said father can not decide whether the girl is mature or not.

Jahan had on September 20 approached the apex court seeking recall of its order directing the NIA to investigate the controversial case of conversion and marriage of a Hindu woman with him.

Apple investigating claims that iPhone 8 splits during charging
We suppose we'll have to wait for Apple's official figures to confirm how well (or not well) the new iPhones are doing. Some users claimed that since updating to the latest iOS update , their gadgets' battery life has been even worse.

However SC clarified that SC has the power to widen the scope of any case based on facts. Jahan has in turn pleaded with the Supreme Court to cancel the NIA probe.

Dave even asked the court: "two of the seniormost leaders in the BJP are married to members from minority community. Will your lordships order NIA enquiry against them".

Raising his voice, Dave said the apex court had exceeded jurisdiction and must recall order.

The apex court's remarks came while hearing a plea by Shafin Jahan, challenging the High Court order that nullified his marriage with Hadiya.

The ASG said though the NIA was not a party to the proceedings, it was made a party at the instance of the former CJI JS Khehar as the court wanted NIA to find out whether there was any pattern emerging in the love jihad case.

The top court had on August 16 directed the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to probe the incident under the supervision of retired apex court judge, Justice R V Raveendran.
