Bengaluru: A pertinent question to ask is will Kerala become Kashmir or Pakistan. At a time when there is real action being taken by all to protect the interest of Hindus, the question to ask once again is, is pride more important than the life of your daughter?

Love Jihad has grown in Kerala in such a manner that it is endangering secularism and social tranquility. “It is a reality that there is love jihad targeting Christian women in Kerala. Out of 21 persons who joined the ISIS, half of them had been converted from Christianity. It should be an eye-opener for us,” a press note from the Synod, the supreme body of the Church said.

Bengaluru: There is a section that lives in absolute denial about the concept called as Love Jihad which had caught on at a rapid pace in Kerala. Recently a woman from Kannur opened up about her ordeal she had to undergo and how she was rescued from the trap of Love Jihad.
She said that she had a met a person called Mushabeer and fallen in love with him. However, he began to pressurise her to change her religion in case she wanted to marry him. She said that he threatened to pour acid on her if she did not convert.

The petitioner sought an NIA probe into the alleged forced conversion of their daughter. The petition states that the girl was forcibly converted through Love Jihad and was being lured into joining the Islamic State in Afghanistan.
