     Lured, not forced two women tell NIA in “Hadiya Love Jihad” case

    During their deposition before the NIA, they said that they were lured, but not forced to convert to Islam. The NIA examined the two women as part of its probe into the case of Akhila Asokan alias Hadiya, a 24 year old Hindu girl who converted to Islam.

    Her parents had moved the Kerala High Court alleging that this conversion was part of radicalisation. They also alleged that she was forcibly married of to Shefin Jahan. After the HC annulled the marriage, Jahan moved the Supreme Court which had ordered an NIA probe to find out if a concept called Love Jihad exists or not.

    NIA officials said that they have asked the Kerala for details on the alleged forced conversions at the Therbiyathul Islam Sabha in Kozhikode, a religious centre authorised by the Kerala government where Akhila is learnt to have converted.

    NIA officials say that one of the women examined said that she converted to Islam to marry a Muslim man. The probe agency is now corroborating the statements of the two women. The agency is going further to find out if the conversions were forced or were the women lured.
