Hadiya, who made a life-altering decision by converting to Islam, has now found new success in her life by completing her medical studies. Hadiya Shafin has opened a clinic in her name, Hadiya’s Homeopathic Clinic. It was opened at Kottakkal Road in Malappuram.

The Supreme Court had advised Hadiya to concentrate on her studies when she was relieved from house arrest after converting to Islam, which grabbed nationwide spotlight. She overcame all obstacles now to become a doctor. Hadiya’s husband, Shafin Jahan, took to Facebook to announce the news.

Earlier this year, in a Facebook post, her husband had also shared his wife Hadiya Ashokan in doctor’s coat with a stethoscope.

“This shining victory is an outstanding achievement because it comes at the end of countless prayers, relentless struggles of separation, love, patience and so on…Alhamdulillah! Finally, you reached an important destination out of all odds. Very proud to address you a Doctor,’’ read the post.

The 27-year-old Hadiya was in the centre of a controversial case of inter-faith marriage when she converted to Islam and married Shafin Jahan in December 2016. Following this, her father K.M. Asokan and mother Ponnamma approached the Kerala High Court with a complaint that the decision was forcibly done and would be recruited to the Islamic State (IS) in Syria. Hadiya was pursuing a graduation programme in homoeopathy medicine and surgery during the period. In May 2017, the Kerala High Court annulled the marriage of Hadiya with Jahan citing that she seemed mentally indoctrinated. The court had also ordered her to return to live with her parents at Vaikom. The Supreme Court, however, set aside the order in March 2018. The apex court had directed Hadiya to rejoin the college to continue her internship for completing the degree course.
