Kerala lesbian couple: The Kerala High Court on May 31 allowed a lesbian couple to live together. They were separated by their parents. The order was issued after hearing a petition filed by Adila Nasreen. Adila said that she and her partner Fatima Noora were physically and mentally tortured by their families. Six days back, Noora was kidnapped by her relatives.
Nasreen alleged that Fatima Noora, who came to Aluva to live with her, was abducted by her family and she was not found. Later on Tuesday morning, a habeas corpus was filed in the High Court claiming that Noora was missing. Considering the petition in the morning, the High Court ordered the police to produce Fatima Noora in the court. Petitioner Adila Nasreen was also summoned in the court at the same time.
A bench of Justice Vinod Chandran made it clear that it is not a restriction for adults to live together. The High Court also disposed of the habeas corpus petition filed by Adila Nasreen. Adila Nasreen said it was tough and left us emotionally exhausted. We got a lot of support from people from the LGBTQ community. We are happy and independent of the order of the Kerala High Court. In fact, we are not completely free because our families are still threatening us.
22-year-old Nasreen and 23-year-old Noora have been in a relationship since their school days in Saudi Arabia. But their relationship was opposed by their parents. Later after graduation, both of them decided to live together. But both the families opposed the move.
