Why the “inter-community marital status” of Syed Mohammad Imran and Latika Dhikshit failed in Secular India?

Hindu woman married to a Muslim man: Dikshit’s daughter Latika Dikshit Syed is known for her “inter-community marital status”, thus mentioned “the Financial Express”, adding, “But the report said, she had separated from her husband 10 months back”. So what made them to get separated or why the “inter-community marital status” did not work between them is not explained. Latika, a trained social worker and a rural development consultant, so far stayed away from active politics. So far, it was good, but for the “inter-religious marital” accord, harmony and amity. The inter-religious and inter-caste marriages in India is exalted as revolution to break communalism, casteism and other medieval evils. However, rarely, it is discussed about the success or failure of such bondages created with progressive, secular and revolutionary compulsions.

latika-syed-married-to-muhammed-imranDid the daughter Latika really want to avenge the defeat of her mother?: In 2014, there were discussions that she may make her political debut in the upcoming Assembly elections in the national capital[1]. According to leaders privy to the party’s electoral strategy for the polls, Latika Dikshit Syed wanted to jump into the fray from the New Delhi constituency “to avenge her mother’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal”[2]. The political pundits did not predict about her fight by joining Congress itself. Meanwhile, Sheila Dikshit has been declared Congress’ chief ministerial nominee in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembley elections. Therefore, whether, the political ambitions of Latika Syed or Syed Mohammad Imran have been shattered or otherwise are not known. Whether, the politics could have been a reason for the breakage of the wonderful bond or the “inter-community marital status”created.

latika-with-dikshit-motherSyed’s potential candidature – to her family’s long-standing ties with the Gandhi family in addition to her ‘secular credentials’ given her inter-community marital status[3]: The daughter of former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit is likely to make her political debut in the upcoming Assembly elections in the Capital. According to leaders privy to the party’s electoral strategy for the polls, Latika Dikshit Syed wants to jump into the fray from the New Delhi constituency “to avenge her mother’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal last December”. Ms. Dikshit, in her early 40s, is a trained social worker. Her brother Sandeep Dikshit, former Lok Sabha MP from East Delhi, is understood to have played ‘a major role’ in convincing Ms. Syed to throw her hat in the political ring even as he held himself back from doing the same, according to party sources. Meanwhile, the party’s Central leadership, insiders said, was ‘more or less convinced about’ putting its weight behind Ms. Syed for a variety of reasons ‘at the moment’. These range from her training in social work to her image as ‘an adequately experienced though young and dynamic leader’. “Her potential candidature has gone well with national vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who is in favour of younger leadership for our Delhi unit, and is convinced that she is a party worker with her ear to the ground,” said a senior party leader. Another party leader attributed Ms. Syed’s potential candidature to her family’s long-standing ties with the Gandhi family in addition to her ‘secular credentials’ given her inter-community marital status[4].

Imran was arrested from Bengaluru two days ago 11-11-2016 after Sheila Dikshit’s daughter Latika filed a case of domestic violence case against him at the Barakhamba police station. Imran was arrested from Bengaluru and brought to Delhi on transit remand, said a senior police official. The accused and Dikshit’s daughter Latika had been living separately for the last ten months since August 2016 and they have no children[6]. The arrested son-in-law of former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had begun torturing his wife after Dikshit lost power in Delhi during the 2013 elections.

latika-syed-with-her-mother-sheila-dikshitSyed Mohammad Imran’s behavious changed after the defeat of his Mother-in-Law:  Dikshit’s daughter Latika has alleged that her husband Syed Mohammad Imran had been living happily since their marriage in 1996 but things went awry after her mother lost the elections[7]. So what interest Syed Mohammad Imran was having in “political win” is intriguing. “Imran’s behaviour changed suddenly after my mother lost the elections in 2013. He turned aggressive and rude and subjected me to torture,” Latika reportedly said in her complaint to Delhi Police which arrested Imran on charges of domestic violence, theft and adultery[8].

Latika had alleged that Imran took away papers of the Nainital land owned by her, despite having been told not to do so in May 2016[9]. Latika also accused one of her female relative of being “in connivance” with Imran, they said[10]. It is simply intriguing to note that Syed wanted the property, to have affair with another woman, quarrel with Latika, and so on. Working in IT Company and having a VIP wife, can he get along by doing all nonsense? How he could live successfully with all such disturbances, without neighbours or friends knowing, that too, living in posh-Bangalore.

sheila-with-her-daughter-and-son-in-lawDeveloping relation with another woman: On the instance of Latika, police have also arrested a woman in the case with whom Imran had allegedly developed an illicit relationship. Delhi Police confirmed the arrest on 13-11-2016, Sunday[11]. The police who had been tracking him for several days traced him to Halasooru where he was staying in a rented house[12]. Deecan chronical reported[13] that “According to the police, Syed Imran was arrested from a hotel on M.G. Road on Friday”. He was working at a software firm in the city[14]. The couple had frequent tiffs over domestic issues, including the custody of their child and Imran used to make abusive calls to Latika regarding the same, the police said. A senior police official said Dikshit’s daughter accused Imran of subjecting her to violence, almost choking her to death on one occasion[15]. She alleged that the two accused have been in an illicit relationship for the past two years 2014-2016[16].

Latika Dikshit filed complaint against her Muslim husband on many accounts: Latika told police that jewellery and other valuables had been missing from her Hailey Road house and whenever she asked Imran about their location, he would only give evasive replies. Police has also charged him under several sections of the IT Act. According to an official of Barakhamba Road police station, Latika had lodged criminal complaint against Imran in June this year 2016. “We contacted Imran several times to come to Delhi for investigation. He was ignoring our calls repeatedly. Following directions from senior officers, a team was sent to Bengaluru which arrested him there,” an official said. Delhi police produced Imran in a Bengaluru trial court and secured his transit remand to pursue the case further in Delhi. Imran had been living in Bengaluru until Delhi police arrested him. Latika along with her two children was living with Sheila Dikshit in her Delhi house. Thus, it is evident that “Zeenews” has wrongly reported about the children.

Indians as fans, followers and consumers have right to research, assess and analyse celebrities: Indians need not worry about the personal lives of the politicians, cine actors, celebrities and others in general. However, as they are held as social symbol, societal trade mark and cultural brand to decide the values of Indians, Indians have to research, assess and analyse them by all means. Through the print and electronic media, they poke into Indian society, sit on many social issues and adjudicate many cases without any care for Indians. Just less than or 1% of these categories have been deciding issues ad forcing others to accept. So when they fail on many accounts, naturally, they have to come out and confess to the Indian fans, followers and consumers about their failure. In India, mostly the politicians, cine actors, celebrities propagate such secularistic programs and therefore, they too have “Social Responsibility” to answer. So let us see, how this case is continued, adjudicated and decided.

    Sheila Dikshit’s son-in-law sent to 2-day police custody
    By PTI | Published: 15th November 2016 02:05 PM |

    NEW DELHI: Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s son-in-law was today sent to two-day police custody by a city court in a case of theft and misappropriating his wife’s property.

    Syed Mohammad Imran, who was arrested from Bangalore and brought here on transit remand, was produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma who remanded him to police custody till November 17.

    Delhi Police sought two days custody of Imran saying they have to recover the articles which he had allegedly stolen.

    Advocates P Banerjee and Neeraj Kumar, appearing for Imran, opposed the police plea saying the probe agency has violated the provisions of CrPC and he should be released from custody.

    The counsel argued that the arrest of accused was not mandatory in this case and the police should have given notice to him to appear before the officer.

    According to police, Latika, Dikshit’s daughter, had also accused her estranged husband of subjecting her to violence.

    Latika and Imran had got married in 1996 but were living separately for the last 10 months.

    In her complaint filed in June, Latika had alleged that Imran’s attitude had changed towards her and had become aggressive and rude towards her after her mother lost in the Delhi Assembly elections.

    Latika had alleged that Imran took away papers of a piece of land owned by her in Nainital, despite having been told not to do so in May.

    According to police, she also alleged that some of the belongings, kept at her Hailey Road house in central Delhi, had gone missing and whenever she asked, Imran was evasive.

    She also alleged that he took away jewellery and other expensive items from there.

    Latika also accused one of her female relatives of being “in connivance” with Imran, they said.

    A case was registered against Imran under Sections 403 (dishonest misappropriation of property), 120 B (Criminal conspiracy), 201 (destruction of evidence)and 420 (cheating) of the IPC and under 66 of the IT Act.
