Love Jihad : Minor Girl Rescued from Mangalorean Boy

Mysore, Apr 7 (DHNS): Even as the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is busy with the its investigation of ‘Love Jihad’ cases in the State, one such case has surfaced in Mysore district. 

K R Nagar police, who were probing into the kidnap of a minor girl from Bherya, have confirmed that the boy had forcibly converted her into Islam.

Sharing the information with the media, Superintendent of Police Ramasubba on Tuesday said the 16-year girl had been kidnapped by Azeem Hafeez (22), son of M Idinabba of Ullal in Mangalore . Hafeez had been working in a medical store in K R Nagar and was living at his relative’s house in that town. He had befriended the girl with the help of his relative.

After kidnapping the girl, he had forcibly converted her into Islam, before marrying her in Chikmagalur. Also, he had changed her name as ‘Mehek Taj’ besides changing her age to 18 years, according to the affidavit sworn-in before a notary at that place. He had disposed off the jewellery the girl was wearing to meet the expenditure.

The SP said records available with police suggested that Hafeez was connected with a theft at Ullal.

Interrogation revealed that Hafeez intended to dump his minor wife. However, his plans went awry, when cops led by DySP (rural) C D Jagadeesh swooped on him at his Subhash Nagar residence.

Acting on the clues given by Hafeez, police arrested Siddiqui and Hassan Kaka for abetment in the crime. Four others, including Hafeez’s parents, Zareen Taj  and Rafeeq are at large. DG and IG Dr Ajai Kumar Singh is appraised of the findings, the SP added.

    The word JIHAD is presented by the muslims or in the name of Jihad and Allah the killings done by the muslims made JIHAD a horrible word for the human being. First you people need to cure yourself.

    Parents should be held responsible for minor child eloping with young man. What is "Love Jihad"? The word doesn't make any sense. What I understand is the word "Jihad" means religious war. (I may be wrong)

    What if the same girl eloped with the Christian or Hindu boy? Then what do you call? "Love conversion" or "Love Bajarang"?

    Bajarangis should keep an eye on their own people (Love Badvas?) doing human trafficking for the modern slavery at brothels and red light areas.

    I feel the root cause of all tensions is the fear of attack on Hinduism by demographic alteration by Muslims and proselytization by Christians. It is true that the demography of many regions in India has altered. The best solution would be to implement Chinese policy of one child per family be it hindu, christian or muslim and a complete stop of propagation of religion by all communities, hindu, christian or muslim. Religion should be left to the personal domain of an individual, no need to rub it in public places.

    Gladson, Brahmavar,

    I dont know what is Love jehad.

    But I know, its a major crime to kidnap a minor in all countries including US.

    Having sex with a minor with or without her consent(assuming even if they are married legally to her say in Iran, where girls legal marriage age is 13) is a major crime in US.

    Who told you if two adults of different religion marry, one should convert to others religion???

    Ridiculous hypothesis.....

    If this happened in US, boy will get atleast 10 years of imprisonment, even if his father is president of USA.

    K R Nagar police, welldone. You are a good example for the Indian Police Department, where people lost confidence in Police. You proved that all fingers are not the same. If every police departments take you as a model and stand for the truth, no wonder people will get lost confidence in Indian Police. Dont leave Hafeez. Teach him a lesson and show him whats the result of playing with the Law. Let people feel the power of Police in reality too, not only in Movies.
    Love is not blind. But the lovers are blind. Police please open the eyes of the blind Hafeez. you can.

    Hafeez Should be punished. Good work done by the police. But don't give Love Jihad Heading to this incident. Such kind of animals are there in every religion. If it is the case tell me what Jihad lable we can give to the Father who raped his own doughter ? or tell me what kind of jihad when parent abuse their own daughter by throwing her out of home? or what I can say about the recent incident happened in Mangalore when one yong man misused his girl friend's photo? When giving some comment people must use their brain.

    This may be another love story..!!

    who knows what happend? make sure that Love is blind, it will not consider cast, color, age etc etc. By labelling love jehad or by the fear of communal riots, Police made this as kidnap.
    Boys dont love any minor girls, if u du then u will become a kidnapper and u have to get ready to go to jail..!!!

    Can anyone clarify as what is Love Jihad at least now and in this particular case how is it applied? It seems age-old love story wherein a boy and a girl (albeit their religion) fell in love, one of them had to be converted and in this girl was converted and they married. Now where is Love Jihad? Has this girl been used for any terrorist activity or the boy has been found guilty of any terrorist activity? Haven't there been innumberable such cases from every religion? Haven't hundreds of Christian girls married Hindus/Muslims even when they were minor? Were these cases too Love Jihad?

    In the present case girl is minor and therefore voluntary conversion too becomes forcible, right. This boy should be punished for forcible conversion, raping the minor and kidnapping (even if it was eloping). But there is no question of Love Jihad unless police have enough proof to prove that he was involved in terrorism and that he used the girl for the same. Don't present the case with hypothetical answers such as 'he was planning', 'he intended' etc. Present the facts and then rake up the issue. Our police and administration first need to convert themselves from their ideology of hate towards particular section before handling the 'religious conversion' The govt and the police who are hand in glove with the Sangh Parivar first need to give one definition to metaphysical aspect of Love Jihad before booking case against anyone in this regard.

    In love as well as in jihad, everything is blind. If you have to ban 'love jihad' or any kind of organization, then indian society should completely ban falling in love and inter-caste marriages! But then, this will talibanize us again. It is a circle. So, stop making a big issue of such things. Just because something like this happens rarely, does not mean it is happening all the time. All you people get real in life, there are other important things to worry about (like solving drinking water and electricity problem, and the increasing prices of food and cost of living etc) rather than worry about this love jihad nonsense.

    Tell me one thing honestly, when young, (or even old) militant hindu men go to prostitutes do they base their decision on the religion of that prostitute, or do they satisfy themselves based on a different set of criteria?

    The boy should be given life imprisonment for kidnaping a minor girl. All the guilty should be punished then there will be no love at all.

    Today i am seeing a very sensible and sincere comment from shahnawaz kukkikatte. If every one becomes so responsible instead of being biased blindly because of fanaticism the intolerance among different communities will come down and there will be a much peaceful atmosphere.

    Hafeez is a disgrace to muslim community. Please punish him. Please return the minor girl to her parents. Seek adequate damages and compensation from Hafeez. Those who supported Hafeez too must be punished. Please go into the deep of this incident. This is a case of cheating. But let me tell you such incidents have been painted as "love jehad" by sangh parivar. As long as a muslim boy is involeved with a hindu girl, then you call it "love jehad". What do you call when a muslim girl is involved with a hindu boy? Can we call it a "love kurukshetra" ? These types of incidets are happening in every community. so just blindly dont blame a community or its tenets. Just blame the person, catch him, try him and punish him. All muslims whall support you.

    Good work by the police. Police action has saved one more communual falre up. Great work. Congratulations to the police.

    Love Jihad is new brand name from Sanga Parivar, actually inter cast love and marriage as usual, some of Hindu boys loved muslim girls and get married also she converted into Hindu religion. Our Indian culture after marriage girls prefer to boy’s religion. This is not new but Love Jihad name is new from Sanga Parivar to betrayed Muslim youths.

    Slowly but steadily the truth which all of us (people living in Mangalore/ India) knew though we liked to close our eyes to make it dark has finally come out.Yet lets close our eyes for us money and freedom which matters.The main culprit behind mis using these young boys needs the society for their effort in paying a huge tax or a lot money to the BMarket.
