A Hindu woman who converted to Islam to marry her Muslim boyfriend in Hyderabad, was murdered by her husband along with the couple’s minor son.
As per a report in TelanganaToday.com, engineering student Mohammed Abid Alam (27), a native of Bihar, had met Saba alias Kavitha while he was staying in a rented room in Indranagar Colony of Vanasthalipuram.
The two fell in ‘love’, but as elders did not agree for their marriage, they eloped and started living together in a rented house. They soon had a son, named Mohammed Irfan.
“Alam soon started suspecting Saba’s fidelity and hence plotted to kill her and Irfan. He wanted to flee to his native place after the murder and re-marry,” said Mahesh M Bhagwat, Police Commissioner, Rachakonda.
On April 28, Alam smothered Saba alias Kavitha with a towel. He then throttled her to death with his hands. He later killed his son in the same way before stuffing both bodies in a water drum in the house.
The double murder came to light two days later on April 30 after the neighbours complained of foul smell and alerted the police. Based on a complaint lodged by the girl’s family, a case was booked and Alam, who had gone absconding, was arrested from Medchal. He was remanded to judicial custody.
It is often seen in Muslim man-Hindu woman marriages that the Hindu woman continues to be considered inferior and is often exploited by her husband and his family. Such women are trapped as having converted to Islam, their marriage is governed by misogynist sharia law, and as such the women do not have the same rights as they would have had if they had married under Hindu Marriage Act or Special Marriage Act.
Here are a few such cases from the recent past –
- Hindu girl was trapped into marriage by a Muslim man with a fake Hindu identity. She resigned to her fate and converted after learning the truth at her in-laws place, but was ill-treated despite bearing 2 children and raped by her brother-in-law. She finally converted back to Hindu Dharma.
- Hindu woman married to a doctor leaves him & marries Muslim driver; later killed by second husband and his father
- Muslim Husband killed Hindu wife, chopped body with help of his 2 brothers – Delhi
- Muslim doctor booked for torturing ex-Hindu wife, making her stay with second wife
- Muslim Husband Stabs Hindu Wife to Death in Nagpur
- Hindu Woman Converted and Duped into Second Marriage, Gang-Raped and Looted
- Love Jihad to Rape Jihad – How an entire Muslim Family & Maulvi Gang-Raped a Hindu Girl in Rampur, UP
This is clearly a major social epidemic which has infected virtually all parts of the country. Yet, not a day goes by when mainstream media and other openly left-liberal media outlets do not scoff at the idea of ‘Love Jihad’ or harangue against those Hindu activists who dare to openly talk about this phenomenon.
