A Hindu woman was first raped, then forced to eat beef and covert her religion to Islam by her husband and in laws. This incident has taken place in Phulwari area of Patna, Bihar.
According to this report, the girl met Asif Iqbal on Facebook and soon the two started having lengthy phone conversations. Upon persistent requests from Asif, she traveled from Kolkata to Patna to meet him . Asif then raped her in a hotel in Mithapur, Patna by lacing her soft drink with sedatives. He made an MMS of the act, and started blackmailing the woman, who returned to Kolkata but could not muster the courage to report the crime to her family or police.
After a few days Asif promised to marry her and in her next visit to Patna she was again sexually abused. Later he took her to meet his parents. Asif and his parents asked her to convert to Islam and took her to a madarsa for conversion. She was sent to live in the madarsa for a month where she was forced to eat beef (cow meat). When she refused to listen to all their demands, her husband and in-laws threatened to blackmail her by circulating her porn videos. The torture continued despite her accepting Islam.
In desperation, the woman mustered the courage to call her mother. Her mother came from Kolkata to meet Asif’s parents, but they abused her and kicked her out. Finally, the woman and her mother approached the police and registered a case in Phulawari Sharif women’s police station. So far police has arrested two men- Rizwi Hassan and Faizal in the case. The main accused Asif and maulvi from madrasa are yet to be traced.
Another case of Love Jihad
Love Jihad is an activity under which Muslim men target women belonging to non-Muslim communities for sexual exploitation or marriage andby feigning love. This case from Phulwari is a classic example of love jihad, and just one of a series of such cases which have come to light from states as far flung as Kerala, Karnataka, Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal etc.
Recently, HinduPost had reported how a Hindu Dalit nursing student in Kerala was gangraped after getting trapped by a Muslim boy Shafeer assuming a fake Hindu identity. In 2014, national shooting champion Tara Shahdeo was deceived by Raqibul Hasan Khan alias Ranjit Kumar Kohli into marriage, and later tortured for over a month to convert to Islam. In another case from Ranchi, Jaya Bhandari married Waqar Danish Anwar who claimed that his family was ‘secular-minded’ and that she could remain Hindu after marriage – but right after marriage he started pressurizing and even physically assaulted her to convert.
The list of such love jihad cases is endless, and should act as a clear warning to Hindu women and families. Despite the denial of the secular-liberal brigade and ‘Aman ki Asha’ gang, love jihad is a stark reality of our times.
And where is the ‘Intolerance brigade’ now? A Hindu girl was forced to accept Islam and consume beef against her will. When a Muslim suffers something similar the incident becomes national news. Thousands of people come out calling Hindus ‘Intolerant’. Over the last few months several non-political personalities, especially writers and intellectuals, publicly expressed their concerns over the rising ‘intolerance’ in the country. Where are they hiding now? Why are they not reacting now and returning awards?
The answer is simple – it doesn’t fit their ideologically biased narrative & give them the desired publicity in national media. There are no political and commercial interests associated with reacting to persecution of Hindus, that’s why news such as these get minimum coverage in the mainstream media.
