Voluntary marriage not love jihad, man tells SC
Monday, July 10, 2017 • Hindi Comments

A Muslim man has filed a plea to the Supreme Court, in which he challenged the annulment of his marriage to a woman who had converted to Islam and asked how voluntary change of religion by an adult woman could amount to love jihad.

Shafin Jahan from Kerala had met the woman’s family in August 2016. Jahan said that it was the woman’s decision to convert to Islam and that the marriage took place months after she agreed.

However, the woman’s family took this case to the Keral High Court, which annulled the marriage.
