'Hindu-Muslim marriages under probe' - The report has no basis, says the Minister

Kochi/Bangalore: The Kerala High Court on Monday expressed dissatisfaction over a report submitted by the Director-General of Police (DGP), Jacob Punnoose, on ‘Love Jihad’ wherein girls from other religious backgrounds were allegedly lured into marriage and converted to Islam.


The court directed the DGP to produce the reports on the basis of which he had prepared the report, in a sealed cover, by November 11.


According to the report, Justice K.T. Sankaran observed that some answers furnished in the DGP’s report were ‘vague’ and it appeared that the statements in different paragraphs did not ‘reconcile’ with each other.


The DGP, in a statement on October 22, had told the Court that there were reasons to suspect attempts to persuade non-Muslim girls to convert to Islam after they fell in love with Muslim boys, but that no organisation called ‘Love Jihad’ had been identified so far in Kerala.


Families of a Hindu and a Christian woman, who married their Muslim classmates in a Pathanamthitta college and converted to Islam, claimed few Muslim groups in the state were luring non-Muslim girls to convert "in an organised manner".


Early this month, Justice K.T. Shankaran, rejecting the anticipatory bail plea of the two Muslim men, asked Director General of Police Jacob Punnoose to conduct a detailed study on 'love jihad'.


Meanwhile, the Karnataka government on Monday ordered a Criminal Investigation Department (CID) probe into ‘Love Jihad’ cases following a recent Karnataka High Court order to investigate such incidents.


Home Minister V.S. Acharya, who chaired a high-level meeting of police officers here, told presspersons that the DGP, CID, had been asked to conduct the investigation and submit a report in the next 15 days. The meeting discussed the alleged incidents of ‘Love Jihad’ reported from Karnataka and Kerala.


Dr. Acharya said a decision had been taken to collect more information about the alleged funding, support and the existence of ‘Love Jihad.’ Besides collecting information about missing girls, the DGP would also gather information on the alleged practice, including those reported from Kerala, and submit a report to the government suggesting measures to curb it. After receiving the report, the government would decide the action to be initiated.


The Karnataka High Court, during a hearing on a habeas corpus petition filed by the parents of a girl who married a Muslim boy from Kannur district and was allegedly confined in a madrasa in Kerala’s Mallapuram town, had directed the Karnataka and Kerala governments to probe jointly the jihad and file a report before November 13. Meanwhile, the People’s Union for Civil Liberties has decided to file a writ petition in the Supreme Court challenging the Karnataka High Court’s order asking a woman, who had converted to Islam to marry a Muslim man from Kerala, to return to her parents’ home until the case was probed.
