What is Love Jihad? The concept of love jihad is neither as random nor as lucid as it is made to seem. It is a very well organized, funded, and strategically managed jihad. The modus-operandi changes based on the place and situation, but the core concept of converting non-Muslim girls to Islam and then using them remains the same.
Love Jihad’s strategies changes, from luring non-Muslim girls, to Muslim boys using sham Hindu names, to an extent of kidnapping girls to convert them to Islam. However, the most sophisticated strategy of all is rarely talked about, which is known as the 5 point plan of Love Jihad. Executed through 5 carefully orchestrated steps, which is widely used to trap and convert Hindu girls mainly in Kerala and also other parts of India.
Contrary to the popular belief, love jihad is not carried out solely by Muslim men. In reality, Love Jihaad is a team effort, where Muslim Girls play a vital role.
While initially deemed a hoax by governments, the media, and court systems, the existence of Love jihad was legally confirmed based on evidence.
In 2009, two female MBA students disappeared from Pathanamthitta in southern Kerala. They were taken to a mosque in Chelari before being moved to Ponnani, where they were converted to Islam. A habeas corpus was filed by one of the victims’ mothers in the Kerala High Court in front of justice K. T. Shankaran.
The complainant stated that the girls were abducted from their homes at night by members of the Popular Front of India (PFI), an Indian Islamist group, and were actively assisted by their women’s wing, the National Women’s Front. The government categorically denied the existence of Love Jihaad. The justice then asked the government to submit all reports on such conversion activities generated by the Special Branch of Police for the court’s perusal.
On December 9th, 2009, after extensively reviewing all police reports and related documents, the Kerala High Court became the first legal entity in the world to acknowledge and confirm the existence of Love Jihaad, particularly in Kozhikode district, where the police had records of such conversions.
Justice KT Shankaran, after the declaration confirming the existence of Love Jihaad. After which several death threats were made to Justice Shankaran.
The fate of Love Jihad victims can vary greatly and is a dark and rarely discussed subject. As most of the rescued victims do not want to openly talk about this due to the threat to them and their families.
As per many (out of over 8,500) of the rescued victims by Hindu Seva Kendram in Kerala, the gruesome reality is, some of the victims are forced into marriage with older Muslim men, others are forced into prostitution, others become human trafficking victims. The most heinous motive is the usage of these innocent Hindu girls in terror attacks.
Most of the terrorist activities carried out by Love Jihaad victims include, but are not limited to:
• Opening bank accounts using their original Hindu names for terror-related transactions.
• Providing logistical support for terror attacks
• Spying, and scouting out areas for potential terrorist activity.
• Carrying explosive materials and weapons without the risk of being searched.
• Able to operate in full view of law enforcement agencies without arousing suspicion.
• Personally, carrying out suicide bombing attacks.
There are several reports of Love Jihad victims being used in terrorist attacks, here are just a few examples:
