4000 girls converted by love Jihadis

4,000 girls converted: Kerala HC
December 9th, 2009

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala High Court on Wednesday said that there were indications that around 4,000 girls had been converted to other religions in the last four years by feigning love and asked the state government to consider framing a law to prevent such forcible religious conversions.

Justice K.T. Shankaran of the HC made these comments while denying bail to two youth who had been arrested for allegedly trying to convert two females MBA students to Islam after feigning romance.

The HC had earlier asked the director-general of police to submit a report on whether there was any ‘love jihad’ movement in the state.

Though the DGP said that the police had got no evidence of such activity in the state, the HC reached a different opinion after perusing the police reports, case diaries and other reports from across the state.

The judge said that majority of the ‘romantic’ conversions had occurred in the north Kerala districts including Malappuram, Kasargode and Kannur. In recent months itself, there had been more than 100 conversions, he added.

It appeared that the conversion of girls in the guise of romance has been prevalent in the state for quiet a while, said the court.

Such forcible conversion was against the law and the state government had the responsibility to prevent it, the court pointed out.

In his report, the DGP had said there was no organised conversion movement in the state. The union home ministry had also submitted a similar report to the HC.

Reacting to the HC’s comments, leaders of the DYFI and the Youth Congress said that the verdict might cast suspicion on all inter-religious marriages.

“We are not in favour of a moratorium on love,” said the YC state president, Mr Liju.

  1. What honor is there in jihad when their so called soldiers of God stoop so low to get what they want. There is no level low enough that terrorists won’t go through to achieve their goal. Playing with human emotions seems to be their forte.
