Love Jihad is real, Christian women being lured into trap says Kerala Church

"Article 25 of the Constitution provides for the freedom to profess, practice and propagate religion subject to public order, morality and health. Various courts have upheld this view including the Kerala High Court," he said.

Raising concern over, "Love Jihad" in Kerala, a senior priest of the Catholic Church said the incidents of young women from the southern state being used as"sex slaves" in war-torn nations are a reality and turning a blind eye to it "amounts to giving a silent sanction" to that.

Referring to the incidents of Christian women taken to Syria and Afghanistan after being allegedly trapped in "Love Jihad", he said some of them were traced even to jails of the conflict-hit nations.
