Dont term every marriage as love jihad, the Kerala High Court observed while allowing a lady to return to her husband. The observation was made by the court which was dealing with a marriage between Sruthi and Anees Hameed in which it was alleged that it was a case of love jihad.
Her marriage is not love jihad, the court observed while allowing Sruthi to go back to her husband Hameed. The court also said that love has no boundary and all marriages should not be termed as love jihad.
It may be recalled that a different Bench of the court had earlier annulled an inter-faith marriage on the ground that it was a case of love jihad.
In the instant case, Anees 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.
