    Don’t say Love Jihad every now and then: Kerala HC

    The observations came during a habeas corpus hearing. One Anees from Kerala had sought an order that his wife Sruthi be released from the custody of her family.

    During her deposition, Sruthi said that she was forcibly being kept at a Yoga centre near Kochi. The people at the Yoga centre which helps re-convert Hindu women who have embraced another religion tortured me, she also alleged before the court.

    During the course of the hearing the counsel appearing for the Yoga centre said that this was a case of Love Jihad. The Bench then shot back by saying, " don't say Love Jihad every now and then and in every case."

    It may be recalled that the NIA is probing the Hadiya case which had also be termed as Love Jihad. The Supreme Court had ordered the NIA probe, but the Kerala government went up before the top court questioning the need for such an investigation.
