“Love Jihad” has gotten to be such a serious problem in India that now the NIA, the National Intelligence Agency, the highest security agency in India, is investigating it by order of India’s Supreme Court. Islam, as Muhammad said, must always dominate and never be dominated. Muslims in India are working to bring that about by preying on emotionally vulnerable Hindu girls, converting them to Islam, and then marrying them off to Muslim men, so that the Muslim community grows and the Hindu community declines.
“NIA finds a common mentor in Kerala ‘love jihad’ cases,” by Bharti Jain, TNN, August 28, 2017:
NEW DELHI: NIA’s preliminary probe into a “love jihad” case on the instructions of the Supreme Court has revealed a common link with another such instance where the “mentor” who persuaded Hindu girls to embrace Islam is a woman associated with the radical group Popular Front of India (PFI).
The NIA report, based on an probe by Kerala Police in Akhila Asokan alias Hadiya case as well as its own preliminary inquiry into the “forced conversion” of one Athira Nambiar from Palakkad, had led the SC to ask the agency to probe the alleged conversion and marriage of Hindu girls in Kerala through allurement and radicalisation.
NIA has cited common accused in the two cases. Athira was supposedly lured by Akhila’s “mentor” Sainaba into embracing Islam with the help of activists linked to Islamic outfits PFI, SDPI and Markazul Hidaya ‘Sathyasarani’. Some of Sainaba’s associates figure in both cases.
The SC direction comes after it was moved following the Kerala HC’s annulling of Akhila’s marriage to Shafin Jahan. It was alleged that PFI activists took advantage of emotionally vulnerable girls who were at odds with their families and convinced them to convert to Islam.
Though Akhila sent four separate letters to her father and senior Kerala Police officers in January 2016 claiming she had converted of her own free will, her name was spelt differently in them. NIA said this indicated that the letters were merely signed and not written by her. This was also the case withAthira.
PFI vehemently denies any forced conversion, citing Akhila’s statement that she had embraced Islam out of her own free will. “Akhila was drawn to Islam after watching her college friends. Sainaba only helped her realise her wish to pursue Islam,” PFI public relations secretary Shafiq Rehmantold TOI.
NIA has said that Sainaba, with whom Akhila stayed before her marriage was arranged with Shafin, is the president of National Women’s Front, PFI’s women’s wing. With the support of Sathyasarani office-bearers, Sainaba and her husband Aliyar had arranged Akhila’s marriage without informing the girl’s parents or the Kerala HC, who had entrusted her with Akhila’s custody at the time.
Another link between the two cases is Mohammad Kutty, a PFI-SDPI activist who had approached Akhila’s friend’s father Aboobacker, along with Sainaba and Aliyar, to take Akhila away from her family for pursuing Islamic studies. Kutty and Sainaba are co-conspirators in the Athira case.
He was also arrested for illegally confining Athira.
The NIA report is said to have mentioned four criminal cases against Shafin, as well as his association with SDPI. He was also in touch with Manseed Muhammad, a chargesheeted accused in Islamic State’s Omar Al-Hindi module case probed by NIA.
Though Akhila and Shafin claim they had met through waytonikah.com, the probe found that neither had visited each other’s profile until after their marriage….
