Kerala government soft on terror, says Ravi Shankar Prasad

Kerala government soft on terror, says Ravi Shankar Prasad

His comments came days after the state government informed the Supreme Court that its police had conducted a "thorough investigation" into the conversion of a Hindu woman to Islam and her subsequent marriage to a Muslim man and did not find material warranting the transfer of probe to the NIA. She was also reportedly influenced by Muslim friends. "In May, the Kerala High Court" t had annulled the marriage, acting on a petition filed by her father, who claimed that Muslim organisations planned to take her overseas to get her to join the Islamic State group. The women, however, said that they were not married as yet even after conversion to Islam.

NIA claims that Athira alias Ayesha has recently reconverted to Hinduism after converting to Islam a few months back.

Meanwhile, a Christian helpline, set up with the support of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) associated Hindu helpline to prevent "Love Jihad", had filed a petition in Kerala High Court seeking to be made part of the case involving Sivasakthi Yogavidya Kendram.

Sources say that the second Athira from Palakad eloped with a Muslim man and converted to marry him. PFI with its multiple fronts like Satyasarini and NWF is possibly responsible for conversion of women like Hadiya and Athira to Islam.

The NIA suspects the role of Popular Front of India in both the cases.

"Yogi Adityanath spoke of "love jihad" in Kerala... this court should know the ground ground realities", Dave had said, adding that Shah had also visited Kerala.

Akhila's parents moved the Kerala High Court alleging that she was radicalised and converted to Islam and forcibly married. But apart from being a law minister, I am also a senior lawyer of the Supreme Court of India. The woman is 24 years of age and has the freedom to decide who she should marry.

He said this while criticising the Pinarayi Vijayan led LDF government for stating in the Supreme Court that a controversial Muslim marriage case in the state did not warrant a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe. NIA investigation is now focused on ascertaining PFI link to these marriages is limited to converting people to Islam or training them for terror activities.
