'Love Jihad' creation of vested interests: Muslim Central Committee

Communal organisations are trying to spoil the image of Muslims

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, he said the entire Muslim community has been shocked at the word “Love Jihad” and it wonders from where the concept cropped up. “There are communal interests behind the plot to spoil the image of Muslims who do not tolerate their progress. A section of media is cooperating with them,” he alleged. “There have been no forcible conversions to Islam also. Islam does not encourage forcible conversions. Even though somebody voluntarily wants to be converted into Islam, there is a legal process,” he said. Masood said if at all some Muslims are involved in plots like Love Jihad, they should be punished. Even though the police heads of both Karnataka and Kerala have stated that there has been nothing called Love Jihad in their states, some vested interests are creating a turmoil, he added.

The Muslum Central Committee will be organising a convention in this connection in November with the participation of religious leaders, heads of educational institutions and intellectuals, he informed.

Bantwal incident

The Committee member Hamid Kandak said one Anitha from Bantwal was missing for some time and it had been alleged that she had been converted by Love Jihad activists.

“There was even a protest in front of Bantwal police station on October 11. But now police themselves have revealed that Anitha was murdered by serial killer Mohan Kumar who was arrested on Wednesday. This incident itself shows how strategically Muslims are being targeted,” he said.
