The Supreme Court asked the Kerala Police to render assistance to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in submitting its report in the case of a Muslim man whose marriage to a Hindu woman was annulled by the Kerala High Court citing it as ‘love jihad.’ An objection was raised by the counsel of Shafin Jahan that he was opposing the plea of the NIA to peruse the investigative record of the case. The court, though taking serious note of the objection, has allowed Jahan to file his response to the NIA application.

“We want the whole picture. Why should anybody doubting the NIA. Are you doubting the NIA,” the bench asked.

The NIA had moved the top court requesting for directions to the Kerala Police to get access to the investigative records in the case.

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. There were allegations that Jahan was a stooge and that the woman was hired by terrorist group Islamic State’s mission in Syria.

    Shame on you IE for publishing such hateful criminal comments. Read them one actually incites people to annihilate a particular community completely. Is this free speech? Or is the right to so called free speech is reserved for a particular "tolerant " set of people? IE is a party to this hate crime by publishing such comments. I appeal NIA to lodge an FIR against IE.

      So IS of Syria appointed him as a recruiting agent and he married a Hindu woman in order to send herto Syria? Brahmin a s s o l e s are very good at twisting any situation. It would be in the best interest of Humanity to annihilate brahmins. That is what probably happening in Kunnur. There can be no evil worse than a brahmin. It is clear SC is facilitating brahmins. SC name should be changed to Something else where many people come and go for a night.

        The narrative by Express Web Desk is problematic. How could the man marry a HINDU woman in December last year after she converted to Islam? If the man married the girl after she converted to Islam, then he married a MUSLIM woman.

            Who the fk is SC to pass such ing orders? Is SC full of SCoundrels? This shows how the SC is used by political scoundrels and religions scoundrels to harass a couple. And those SCoundrels are appointed after they pass a "nightly exam" with a Mumbai model in a 7 star Mauritius hotel. Unless the judges had been supplied with girls for their posting and their own "nightly" records are with agencies, they won't pass such orders.

                Mind you SC is not Mohammad's court. SC is a part of civilized human society not a repeat not a part of savage,barbaric community. In humans can not question civilized humans.

                    What a shame, now you may not play 'love jihad' become Muslim and start dropping jihadis. Why not migrate to Pakistan, a land of Sunni jihadis ?
