There is no hiding from the fact that some extremist youth from Muslim community are involved in the heinous practice of Love Jihad, an alleged effort made by them only to target beautiful and rich women belonging to non-Muslim communities for religious conversion to Islam by ‘fake love’.
They understand girls’ behaviour and study them completely before utilising emotional appeals by using charm to attract girls into conversion by simulating love. Some Mosques in India are allegedly providing training and fund to handsome boys for the cause.
This infamous concept first came to light in India in the year 2009 with alleged conversions in Kerala and Karnataka. Slowly, it started to spread across all states of the country.
Another case of love jihad has emerged from Kannauj district of Uttar Pradesh where a Muslim man concealed his religious identity and got married to a Hindu woman according to Hindu customs. He identified himself as Rahul Verma. His real identity was exposed when the woman’s brother posted the wedding photo on Facebook. The man was identified as Mohammad Taufiq.
The woman’s brother said that the whole family went to Lucknow for his sister’s marriage on December 10. When he posted some photographs of the Jaimala ceremony on Facebook, a few people mentioned in the comments that the groom is of another religion. When he tried to find more information, he realized that his name is not Rahul Verma but Mohammad Taufiq Khan, who resides in village Kheddevar of Gursahaiganj police station area.
Station in-charge Raja Dinesh Singh said that it is a case of fraud as Taufiq hid his religious identity and married a Hindu woman. Police have arrested the accused and provided security to the woman. Taufiq was taken to court to record his statement amid tight security.
A case has been registered under Prohibition of Unlawful Religious Conversion Ordinance, 2020 and Section 419 (fraud), 420 (cheating) 496 (Marriage ceremony was fraudulently gone through without lawful marriage) and 295 A (Deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings) of Indian Penal Code.
As per the reports, Taufiq claimed he was working as a property dealer in Lucknow. He reportedly dealt in the sale and purchase of properties on commission. He did not invite any of his family members to the wedding. Only the family members of the victim attended the wedding.
