Chennai: Two days after the Supreme Court asked her to return to college and complete her studies, Hadiya has said that she was still not free.
"I haven't got what I asked for. I am waiting for the court order to see whether it will be another prison for me. I need the freedom to meet the person I love," said the face at the centre of the Love Jihad controversy.
The Supreme Court on Monday freed Hadiya from the custody of her parents and allowed her to return to her college.
The court also appointed the dean of the Shivraj Homoeopathic Medical College as Hadiya's guardian and granted him liberty to approach it in case of any problem.
The Court ordered the college administration to treat Hadiya like any other student and as per hostel rules but remained silent on whether Shafin Jehan, Hadiya’s husband, or her parents would be allowed to meet her while she completes her studies.
"I won't allow Hadiya's husband to meet her. Her parents admitted her here; only they can meet her," said G Kannan, Principal, Shivraj Homoeopathic Medical College.
The principal said that Hadiya will be going to hostel like any other student. "She can't go anywhere alone and can do nothing without prior permission from me," said the principal.
The principal also said that the completion of her homoeopathy course was his priority.
"Hadiya is still Akhila Ashokan as per records. If there is a change in name, it will be done through due procedure," said Kannan.
