Hadiya is safe and healthy, says Women’s Commission chief

The National Women’s Commission has said that they have found 25-year-old Hadiya is safe and healthy at her residence in Kottayam district.

The Rights Commission’s assertion was contrary to allegations of rights activists across the state that Hadiya was being subjected to harassment at her house by her parents.

After visiting Hadiya’s home in Kottayam’s Vaikkom on Monday, Commission’s acting Chairperson Rekha Sharma said that Hadiya was safe at her home.

“She is safe, there is no harassment. She said that she is willing to appear in court”, Rekha said.

Although the chairperson said that she did not discuss about the particulars of the legal case with Hadiya, Rekha remarked that what happens in Kerala was not ‘love jihad’, but forced religious conversions.
