Kerala lesbian couple, Fathima Noora and Adhila Nassrin get support from the Kerala High Court as the court grants them permission to stay together.
In a delightful verdict, the Kerala HC grants the Kerala lesbian couple, Fathima Noora and Adhila Nassrin permission to live together after a habeas corpus plea was filed by Adhila. The couple was forcefully separated by their family members which made them reach out to the court for support.
According to the plea filed in the court by Adhila (22), she met Fathima (23) in Saudi Arabia during their student days and they got together after realizing that they were both lesbians. They moved to India and decided to keep their relationship a secret as their relatives objected to the relationship.
After 4 years of their relationship, they decided to flee from their homes and live together. They had been living in Kozhikode with the help of an NGO that works for the welfare of the LGBTQIA+ community. She also mentioned how the police did nothing to bring her back. Adhila’s parents, on the other hand, had assured them that they will be taken care of in their house in Aluva, where the couple have been staying together. But they were subjected to emotional torture and taunting while they were there.
But a few days before, Adhila, based out of Ernakulam, took to social media and alleged that her partner’s family had taken her away by force. Following the same, Adhila filed a plea to be reunited with her partner and the Kerala HC ruled in their favor.
Kochi | It was tough & drained us emotionally. We got a lot of support from people from the LGBTQ community. With the Kerala High Court order, we are happy & free. Actually, we are not completely free as our families are still threatening us: Adhila Nassrin pic.twitter.com/1d8Xm7DWah— ANI (@ANI) May 31, 2022
