Quoting American civil rights activist and poet Maya Angelou, the bench noted in its order: “Love recognises no barriers, it jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
The principal had sought an order against the agitation of CPM student wing Students’ Federation of India that has been on at the campus now for 50 days.
“When you get a headache, cutting off the head is not the solution,” said Hibi Eden, Congress MLA from Ernakulam and former president of the NSUI.
On February 17, the actress was abducted and sexually assaulted in a moving car near Kochi.
The driver, Shafeeq Ismail, 32, moved the HC seeking quashing of the case registered against him under non-bailable offences.
Asokan hoped the report would help Hadiya realise the “dangerous path” she had chosen by converting to Islam. The NIA is likely to submit the report on October 3.
Why must courts place conversion to Islam in the matrix of radicalisation? Critics have argued that by ordering the annulment of marriage, the court has legitimised the love jihad propaganda.
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan was accused of hatching a criminal conspiracy while he was serving as the electricity minister between May 1996 to October 1998.
Hadiya had married Jahan on December 19 last year. Her father, however approached the court alleging forceful conversion and that the marriage was an attempt to make her a part of the Islamic state. While Kerala High Court has annulled the marriage, Jahan approached the Supreme Court challenging the HC verdict.
Shafin Jahan had married a Hindu woman in December last year after she converted to Islam. The High Court annulled his marriage saying it was an insult to the independence of women in the country.
Senkumar, in an interview to a Malayalam web portal, spoke of “demographic change” and linked it to the alleged “growing Muslim population in Kerala”.
The bench further observed that the long queues are an affront to the dignity of those who have to stand to buy liquor and asked the KSBC to stop the practice of barricading the outlet and making the customer stand outside to buy liquor.
The two-and-half minute clip apparently shows prime accused Pulsar Suni trying to sexually assault the actress. The police is considering this as clinching evidence against the accused as his DNA has already been recovered from the clothes worn by the actress that day.
The Kerala government recently amended the existing liquor policy to allow three-star restaurants and above to get bar licenses. Earlier, only five-star restaurants had approval to serve liquor.
The court also pointed out that the actions of the government had been called into question on the ground that people holding high public office should not have controversial credentials
