Politics India Love jihad did not spare even a BJP leader's daughter?

Between the disappearance of the daughter of a former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA, Surendra Nath Singh, from Madhya Pradesh’s capital Bhopal and after the daughter came forward to accuse the family, the case has taken a different hue. Is it yet another case of love jihad? The former MLA has directly accused a Congress MLA who is denying it.

Former MLA Singh lodged a report at the Kamalnagar police station on 17 October that his daughter Bharti (26) had been missing since 13 October. He claimed in the complaint that the mental health of his daughter was not sound. As the police were searching for Bharti, a video of her went viral on social media on Saturday and a petition was filed for her protection at the Jabalpur High Court.

The case of the daughter of the former MLA has taken political colours now even as members of society see a love jihad angle in the whole affair.

The former MLA openly alleged in a conversation with reporters on Sunday, “Congress MLA Arif Masood is involved in this love jihad in Bhopal. My daughter is not feeling well. She has been undergoing treatment for four years. “

Masood says, “Surendra Nath’s daughter is like a daughter to me. I have nothing to say on his allegations. I leave it to Allah.”

On the one hand, the former MLA made serious allegations against the Congress MLA. On the other, BJP workers in the city are quite angry over the development. The cadre are protesting, but so far no major leader has openly expressed any opinion.

Bharti on Saturday shared a video after the former MLA lodged a report of her disappearance, in which she has made serious allegations against her family members.

In the video gone viral, Bharti is seen to refute her father’s claim that her mental state is not sound. She is saying she was “safe and happy” after leaving home, as she used to be harassed by her family at home. Bharti says she is currently working at a fitness centre and that she is pursuing a course in nutrition in Pune.

The former BJP MLA’s daughter has filed a petition for protection at the Jabalpur High Court, stating that she is in a ‘relationship’ with a 33-year-old Muslim man and wants to marry him, so she should be given state protection.

“Love jihad” is a term coined in Kerala. The first community that raised the issue was of Christians.

Jagratha, the mouthpiece of Kerala Catholics Bishops Council, said in 2015 that “around 4,000 young girls were converted to Islam under love jihad between 2005 and 2012”.The issue of conversion for marriages turned political when several girls under 30 years of age converted to Islam after falling in love with Muslims between 2008 and 2015.The then Chief Minister of Kerala Oommen Chandy had said in the state Assembly that 7,713 persons had been converted to Islam between 2006 and 2012.
