Several instances of girls being converted to Islam in Kerala have made it into Intelligence reports. With money as motive, Muslim youths have been using social stigma and torture methods to trick and force Hindu and Christian girls to convert to Islam
The National Commission for Women has raised concerns over the growing number of forced conversions or Love Jihad cases in Kerala. Earlier this NCW chief, Rekha Sharma, likened the problem to a ticking time bomb and asked the Kerala government to take action on it.
Sharma went on to say that the fear was not only among the Hindus but among Christians as well. She said that women were being lured in Kerala and forcibly converted to Islam, and this was a serious concern.
