In this article, I would seek to inform all of you about one such an issue which is matter of great concern, the issue of “Love Jihad”. What is Love Jihad? Is it an interfaith marriage or love affair between a Muslim and a Non-Muslim? Absolutely no. Love Jihad in today’s circumstances simply means: A Muslim trapping a Non-Muslim in love affair and later on forcing him/her to convert to Islam. But why call this process “Love Jihad”? Because, Jihad in context of Muslims means striving towards propagating Islam. So, whenever a Muslim choose “love and force simultaneously” as the medium to propagate Islam, it is called “Love Jihad”. But why Muslims do this Love Jihad? Because, of a Quranic command.
“Marry not idolatresses until they believe. Truly a believing slave woman is better than an idolatress, though she be pleasing to you. And marry none to the idolaters until they believe….” says Quran 2.221
This Quranic verse very categorically stated that Muslim men and women should not marry idolaters until those idolaters start believing in Islam. And this is the prime reason why we witness “Love Jihad”. Because whenever a Muslim thinks of marrying a Non-Muslim, it becomes necessary on his/her part to convert his/her partner to Islam in order to gain acceptance in society.
Now, I find 2 ways in which Muslims fulfil this command of Quran:
- The Honest Way
- The “Love Jihad” Way
The ‘Honest Way’ is that in which Muslims directly ask or peacefully insist their partner to accept Islam as their religion. And I think, no rational minded person would have an issue with this way of Muslims.
But then comes the other way, the ‘Love Jihad’ way, in which Muslims lay down an elaborate trap to catch Non-Muslim girls and forcibly convert them to Islam. And I think, every rational minded person would have issues with this way of Muslims.
So basically, in this article, I would be citing those cases happened recently [between Feb 2018-June 2018] in which Muslims chose ‘The Love Jihad Way’ where a Muslim married (or got into a relationship) with a Non-Muslim and then forced him/her to convert to Islam.
Please note: There are many cases in which Muslims hide their true identity, and reveal it only after establishing a sexual relationship. They then leave the woman in a helpless state, but I wouldn’t count them as Love Jihad because in those cases, Muslims didn’t convert Non-Muslims to Islam (which is the aim of Jihad). So such cases, in my view, shall not be regarded as Love Jihad. On the other side, there are many cases where Muslims abducted Non-Muslims, sexually exploited and converted them to Islam, but I wouldn’t count even these cases as Love Jihad because there is no “love” factor involved. So I’m making it very clear again that I would count only those cases as Love Jihad where Muslims first used “love” to trap Non-Muslims and later aspired to forcibly convert them into Islam.
Case 1 :
A Muslim man, Arif Hussain, married a Hindu girl making her believe that his name is ‘Chotu Singh’. After marriage, Arif Khan started beating her and forcibly converted her to Islam.

Readers, I cited above 16 cases of Love Jihad. Have you ever watched prime-time debates on any of these 16 cases? Probably no. Leave aside debates, most of the “eminent liberal journalists” don’t even report such cases for 5 minutes. Leave aside television media, not even English print media give space to such cases. It is almost in all cases, only Hindi or regional newspapers which dare to report on Love Jihad.
On the other hand, any case of assault involving ‘cow’ catches media’s eye in no time. It becomes the subject of prime-time debates. Pseudo-liberals set entire country on fire. They go on to write article after article on international newspapers to shame India and Hindus. Even those who never found the religion of terror despite thousands of terror attacks against Non-Muslims, suddenly start using terms like “Hindutva Terror or Cow Terrorism”.
Now the point to ponder is, what makes ‘Love Jihad’ so different from ‘cow vigilance’ that one attracts ‘no’ attention and other attracts ‘all’ attention? And after much reasoning, the only factor which creates such a huge difference clicks to my mind is RELIGION OF THE VICTIM.
Hindus are victims of ‘Love Jihad’, so our MSM choose to snub the issue and Muslims are victims of ‘Cow Vigilance’, so MSMleavese no chance to shame Hindus. Believe it or not, this is actually what matters to MSM.
The Possible Rescue:
So what is the possible rescue from the threat of Love Jihad? Is it moral policing? The way of Bajrang Dal? Absolutely no. If you have read those above 16 cases, you know that Bajrang Dal actually helped several women to get justice and also rescued several women from being forcibly converted, but definitely, I wouldn’t suggest anybody follow their way. Not just that their way is quite immoral but also that you may end up landing in legal troubles if you persuade them. The best possible is, to generate awareness (not fear) among people, especially women (as it is them who are victims is most of the cases). Also, every boy/girl, in my opinion, before getting into any relationship, should inquire perfectly about each other. And the most important part is, to take your parents into confidence. As we have seen in above 16 cases, those parents who knew the boy with whom their daughter was in an affair with, took more effective steps against those who didn’t know when their daughters suddenly disappeared. To conclude: To tackle Love Jihad, we need to educate ourselves and others about it and most importantly to take our parents into consideration before taking any such sort of major decision in life.
I’m wholeheartedly thankful to a Twitter user, @Ayravata, who made a long and very informative thread about those cases where Non-Muslims are victims of ‘Love & Rape’ Jihad. As I have said, MSM chooses not to report on such cases, so, like everybody else, even I was unaware of how gigantic problem this Love Jihad is. But it only after going through his thread of tweets, I realised it and selected few appropriate cases for my article.
