“Islamic Love Jehad” making inroads into Jammu: VHP

Vishva Hindu Parishad has termed the recent movement of interfaith marriages in Jammu among Muslim boys and Hindu girls as an “Islamic Love Jehad" to induct Islamic domination in the region.

“The exercise contains government patronage as everything is being done openly without any administrative check to it,’ said Ramakant Dubey, VHP president sounding a warning that if immediate containment is not maintained against the ‘unholy practice’, Jammu people would have to rise for a rebellion.

“The only way to fight against jehad is jehad,” said Ramakant adding that present dispensation instead of making tall claims on national and international levels must look into the state affairs first.

“We submit a request to chief minister to take serious note of the unholy practice and rein in such exercise, failing which, Jammu would be left with no option but to revolt which may lead to damaging consequences,” said the VHP chief.

Quoting a recent example of a Muslim married man of three children in government employment having fleeced a Hindu girl into ‘love trap’ and tried to elope, VHP chief said that since the incident came into light only, many girls in the remote and hilly terrains are being subjected to such ‘jehad’ which is unaccountable.

He also referred to government’s apathy by putting up a deaf ear to the recent incident while acting indifferently in “Rajneesh’s alleged custodial death’ where a Hindu boy had married a Muslim girl and invited administrative ire.

“It is a well planned network of activity which starts with Muslim girls making close acquaintances with Hindu Girls in Jammu province and then paving way for Muslim boys to intrude and fleece the gullible girls into their love traps,” said the VHP chief holding government equally responsible in the act.

He said the practice is still in vogue in Ladakh where a large number of Bodh girls have been converted as the area now have more of Muslim domination than its own identity as Buddhists.

“Same is the modus operandii embarked by the majority community here in Jammu province which is a grave danger towards which parental and administrative vigil is needed round the clock,” said the VHP chief.
