Actress-turned-politician Khushboo has said that her views on premarital sex, expressed some time back which kicked up a huge row in the State resulting in protests and remarks against her, have now been justified by the recent views of Chennai High Court in a case filed by a Muslim women seeking maintenance for herself and her two children from her estranged husband.
In a recent judgment, the Chennai High Court has said that though a man(21 years of age) and a woman(18 years of age) aren’t married, if they indulge in a physical relationship and bear a child between them, they ought to be treated as ‘husband and wife’ and face the consequences. The court also ordered monthly maintenance of Rs 500 each to the children , but has said the woman is not eligible for the relief as the marriage was not registered.
Citing this, Khushboo had tweeted on her Twitter account, “So HC confirms what I had said few years back..premarital sex do happen..do I see some political parties shouting outside the HC?? 🙂 ;)”
When contacted on this Khushboo says “My views on premarital sex have now been justified by the recent judgment passed by the Chennai High Court. Now that the Court has talked about premarital sex in plain terms, I am waiting for moral policing political outfits which protested my remarks to go to the Court’s premises to express their opposition to the Court’s remarks,” she asks.
