The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is working on a mechanism to tackle love jihad in the state even as the scourge spreads across Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi. Typically, in such cases, a Muslim man poses as a Hindu, pretends to fall in love with an unassuming Hindu girl, But there are also cases where Hindu girls brought up on secular education fail to appreciate the stark difference in the cultures, lifestyles and belief systems of the two communities and fall for Muslim men, knowing they are Muslims. In cases of either kind, the girl often lands in an atmosphere quite alien to her and then cries for help if she is fortunate enough to live to tell her story of woes.
Love jihad is not a fictional concept but actually a part of the conspiracy hatched by the fundamentalists. There is no official register as of now that has recorded all such cases.
Sirf News has today reported the latest case of love jihad where a certain Abdullah with four children befriended and raped a minor Hindu girl. Police today arrested Abdullah. His accomplice Bunty Khan has been arrested for kidnapping the minor girl to help Abdullah.

These are only select matters of love jihad, the cause of Islamic fundamentalism across the country. Those are presented to you as an example. Otherwise, there are many such incidents in different states of the country, where a definite pattern can be seen if we investigate. Whenever a party or organization takes up this matter prominently, people of a certain section declare it against the integrity of the society and are trying to declare it as the brainchild of the rightists.
Many cases of love jihad have been reported in Kerala in the recent past as the stronghold of the Left. A Muslim conference recently issued a press release saying that Hindu women are being targeted in Kerala in the name of love jihad. Of the 21 people who joined ISIS recently, half of them were Hindus, who were converted.
Pattern in love jihad
Even today people who have doubts about love jihad or, after learning about so many cases, those who feel all people are all part of the Indian society, they need to look at the pattern in these cases. Following is the modus operandi seen in every other incident of love jihad.
Often in a case of the type, the family of the Muslim man is not financially well off. The youth is either unemployed or is fed up of a series of forgettable jobs he could secure but not sustain for long. However, when they must trap a Hindu girl, they would beg, borrow or steal to look affluent. They would present themselves in good clothes, purchase expensive gifts and, most importantly, when caught, they get professional legal help to wriggle out of the clutches of the judiciary.
