The pamphlet says attempts are being made to turn 10 lakh Muslim girls into Kafir. It also claims that about 800 Muslim girls in Amravati city of Maharashtra were subjected to conversion.
BHOPAL — A pamphlet titled ‘Khula Khat’ (open letter), alerting Muslim girls against “saffron love-trap” conspiracy, surfaced in the BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh’s Indore prompting the state Home Minister Narottam Mishra to order a high-level probe.
The pamphlets ‘Khula Khat’ criticise the RSS and associated right wing Hindu outfit Bajrang Dal for plotting a conspiracy to convert Muslim women.
Quoting Police sources, IANS reports that the pamphlets were distributed in several Muslim dominated colonies in Khajrana, Chandan Nagar, Rawji Bazar and Bombay Bazar areas in Indore. Besides, the pamphlets were shared on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
Attempts are being made to turn 10 lakh Muslim girls into Kafir (non-believers of God and tenets of Islam), reads the pamphlet. It also claims that about 800 Muslim girls in Amravati city of Maharashtra were subjected to conversion.
A copy of the said pamphlet was reportedly shared by a Hindu woman with the Indore police on Tuesday night.
The state Home Minister has ordered a high-level investigation into the matter.
“Indore police have been directed to scan all CCTV cameras installed in a particular area and jail those trying to disrupt social harmony in the state. A quick action was taken by police and further investigation is being done,” Minister told the press on Thursday.
Indore police commissioner Makarand Deouskar said, “An FIR has been registered under Section 153 -A IPC (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc) at the Rawji Bazar police station against unidentified persons and investigations are underway.”
Specific inputs were received regarding pamphlets being distributed by some youngsters in Muslim dominated areas of the city since the last few weeks, police said.
According to media reports, preliminary investigation suggested that it’s a concerted effort by some organised group to establish the counter narrative against the right-wing Hindu group’s rising narrative of ‘Love Jihad,’ as the saffron outfits’ narrative has particularly gained momentum following the box office success of the controversial movie – ‘The Kerala Story.’
