Love Jihad: Girl Abducted and Forcibly Converted to Islam, Gangraped After Forceful Marriage

A case of Love Jihad has surfaced where a young girl from Shri Ganganagar, Rajasthan was abducted by a Muslim man, who took her to Meerut in UP and forced her to accept Islam. There, she was forcefully married off to the accused and then gangraped by him, his relatives and friends, reports Hindi daily Dainik Bhaskar.

The victim became friends with the accused Mohammed Shahnawaz on Facebook. Last year, on August 17, 2018, Shahnawaz visited Shri Ganganagar to meet her at a hotel. There, he blackmailed her to leak their private chats and photos, if she denied to marry him. After intimidating her, he brought her to his village in Meerut.

The victim has told the police that Mohammed Shahnawaz, Khurshida, Amir Shahnawaz and his friends along with his uncle and aunt, kept her as hostage in a room. They forcibly converted her religion to Islam and then married her off to Shahnawaz. She was subjected to continuous gangrapes by Shahnawaz and his friends and relatives. On August 10, 2018, the accused made her sign some legal papers.

Victim has revealed that they also used to inject drugs into her so as to keep her unconscious. Somehow, she was successful in informing her family about her whereabouts. The accused then demanded a ransom of Rupees Fifty Thousand. Only when they got the money, she was released.

On Thursday, the girl told everything to the SP. On SP’s instructions, a case of abduction, gangrape, forced conversion and other multiple charges, was filed in women’s police station, against all the accused from Meerut.
