Hadiya's father welcomes Supreme Court decision allowing her to continue studies

New Delhi: Kerala woman Hadiya's father welcomed the Supreme Court decision allowing her to continue her studies.

Asked about his stance on inter-caste marriages, KM Ashokan said he believed in one religion and one god but could not have a terrorist in the family.

"Hadiya does not have any idea about Syria, where she wanted to go after getting converted to Islam," Ashokan said. "I cannot have a terrorist in the family," he added.

The Supreme Court yesterday freed Hadiya, alleged to be a victim of 'love jihad', from the custody of her parents and sent her to college to pursue her studies, even as she pleaded that she should be allowed to go with her husband.
