Kerala love jihad victim Akhila Ashokan or Hadiya pleads for help in a new video that was released on Thursday.
She was heard pleading with activist Rahul Eashwar in a video that he had shot on August 17 where she says:
“You need to get me out. I will be killed anytime, tomorrow or the day after, I am sure. I know my father is getting angry. When I walk, he is hitting and kicking me. If my head or any other part of my body hits somewhere and I die.”
Hadiya was put in the protective custody of her parents after the Kerala High Court annulled her marriage with Shafin Jahan on charges of ‘love jihad’.
Hadiya’s father had claimed that her husband has links with terror-outfits. He had also alleged that she was forcefully converted by her friends.
The 25-year-old homeopathic doctor had converted to Islam and changed her name to Hadiya last year after her marriage with Shafin Jahan. However, based on her father’s claim, the Kerala High Court had accepted that Shafin Jahan has links with terror-outfits and so annulled her marriage with him.
Rahul had released another video of her earlier as well where Hadiya had said: “Is this how I should live? Is this my life?”
Hadiya was reportedly not been allowed to step out of her house ever since the high court gave her custody to her parents. It is reported that there are police officers stationed outside her house too. The Supreme Court had ordered a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to find out if there is a pattern of ‘love jihad’ in the case.
Here is the new video that was released on Thursday.
