Love Jihad in India and Europe – Its Historical and Empirical context and Denial by vested Interests

Love Jihad in India and Europe – Its Historical and Empirical context and Denial by vested Interests

In the recent months, Yogi Adityanath has become the target of many in India, who value political correctness over facts.  With his less than half a dozen speeches, he has ruffled the feathers of Indian Secularism so badly that the media – without Dispassionately and independently weighing his assertions – is keen to pronounce him a devil.  In fact the rhetoric of Indian media is so sharp that it almost seems that one cannot even present a view or opinion contrary to the prevalent one.  Leave alone factually and scientifically analyze it.  It is in this scenario I want to look at the central arguments of Yogi Adityanath and see what is the truth and how to rationally look at the arguments presented by him.

His main statement was in the Indian Parliament.  The speech which “started it all”.

In this speech he discussed a few points:

  • Bias for Muslim community in the garb of Secularism
  • “Secular Parties” shielding and releasing the Rioting Criminals who are Muslims – from Assam to UP to Mumbai’s Azad Maidan Violence
  • Difference between Exclusive ideology of Islam vs Inclusive paradigm of Hinduim / Sanatan Dharma

He has later discussed the scourge of Love Jihad in his discussions with people.

In another Aap ki Adalat program, he has discussed the Love Jihad issue and also how the riots have been started by Muslims in a predominant way in India.  Also that a certain percentage of Muslim population equates to a certain level of religious violence.

Now, let us look at the broad issues he is talking about:

  1. Love Jihad by Muslim youth
  2. Sheltering and promoting Riot Criminals by “Secular” Parties in India
  3. Link between Muslim population and Rioting

In this part, we will discuss on Love Jihad and see what it is and what is the context that this is being discussed.  We will see how a practiced and deliberate furtherance of denial has become an agenda of Islamism by the so-called Secularists in Europe and India.  In this crime against women, curiously Leftists are the bed-fellows of the Islamists.

Love Jihad

What is Love Jihad? – Wikipedia describes Love Jihad as “also called Romeo Jihad, is an alleged activity under which young Muslim boys and men reportedly target young girls belonging to non-Muslim communities for conversion to Islam by feigning love.”

The concept of Love Jihad had started in UK specifically and Europe in general, specifically by Pakistani Muslim youth where they targeted White, Sikh and Hindu women using different “techniques”.  The technique of using emotional appeal in converting people is a “best practice” that has been perfected by the Christian sects in different geographies over the years and has been documented by The Oxford Handbook of Religious Conversion as well.

Over the years, this manner of targeting of the local population using the appeal of “Love” has been called “Love Bombing” and “Flirty Fishing”.  Love Bombing uses “Feigned love” to target vulnerable teenagers who have a need for emotional dependence to create unquestioning loyalty.  It has been discussed thus:

The phrase can be used in different ways. Critics of cults and churches use the phrase with the implication that the “love"  is feigned by cults and churches and that the practice is manipulative of vulnerable individuals, particularly teenagers and young adults, who may have been emotionally rejected by partners, parents, siblings, peers or who have other developmental problems and that love bombing is also utilized by the leadership of cults and churches to both silence internal dissent and further control members within group settings by directing the withholding attention and affection from individuals within the group.  Members of the Unification Church (who reportedly coined the expression) use or have used it themselves to convey a genuine expression of friendship, fellowship, interest, or concern projected toward potential and new recruits. It has also been used to refer to abusers in romantic relationships showering their victims with praise, gifts, and affection in the early stages of a relationship.

Feigned Affection for forced allegiance to a cult – a Conversion “Best Practice”

As is obvious – the practice of using love romeos to target vulnerable women to convert them and gather allegiance to a cult group – used and perfected by Christian sects for years – has been an empirical “Best Practice” for long.

This technique – hit upon by the Pakistani Muslim youth in UK and Europe – has been transported into the Islamic groups with ease and maximum effectiveness.  This manner of conversion has been used to bolster the ranks of Jehadi “assets”, which can penetrate the Western society and institutions without any detection after proper level of brainwashing has occurred with the victims.

Documented cases of “Gangs” unleashing Love Jehad in Europe

When one looks at the progressive use and perfection of the erstwhile technique of “Love Bombing” to create resources and assets for Jihadi activities of Muslim terrorists, one finds that before this scourge hit the Indian shores, it has already been firmly implemented in Europe.  Look at the following documented cases of how Pakistani gangs have exploited girls in Europe over the last few decades.

The number of the victims have been in thousands!!  And the perpetrators have been Muslims (Pakistanis almost always) in 100% of the cases!

The Recent High Profile cases of Love Jihad

Here are two recent rather high profile cases of Love Jihad.  First one to hit the National Headlines has been that of the National level shooter – Tara Shahdeo.

The second one, which broke out today is of a national level Table Tennis player who was forcibly detained by the family of a Muslim guy.  They converted her forcibly, changed her name and religion and got her married to the boy.

Pakistan, Terror, and Love Jihad

The use of Love Bombing by Pakistani youth in West, specifically Europe had an obvious objective – the transformation of Europe to a society with higher and higher Muslim population.  The fact that almost 100% of the youth involved in this campaign were from Pakistan, question does arise if someone was actually behind the whole work?  Otherwise how can random people hit upon this idea just to push up the Muslim population and fanaticism as well as create useful Terror assets in Europe?

The suspicion goes on Pakistan’s ISI – the Intelligence agency, which may be recruiting and then infiltrating European countries using the Asylum pleas and then launching the “Love Bombing” or “Love Jihad” campaign.

In the August 31st issue in 2012 of Malayalam Manorama, an extensive report discussed how the Pakistan based terror groups are now furthering Love Jihad as a means to create Terror Assets in India as well.

The August 31 issue of a Malayalam newspaper Malayala Manorama, carried an extensive report on how a Pakistan-based terrorist organisation is planning, abetting and financing the enticing of college girls from different communities to become cannon fodder for its programmes in India. The report terms such girls ‘Love Bombs’.
The modus operandi is clever. Muslim boys in Kerala are employed by the terror organisations to entice college girls. Handsome and dashing boys are selected and financed to have cars, motorbikes, most expensive clothing and a lot of cash. Their job is to move in groups, select their prey and then entice it to elope with them on the promise of marriage and a great life abroad.
After days of pretended love making, the girls easily begin to believe that they have got their ‘Prince Charming’. Once they elope, a marriage is registered before a notary and then the girl is whisked from place to place. The victim begins to believe that she has to undergo this to evade her parents who would be searching for her.
Hideouts include places that have a heavy Muslim concentration. No outside contact is allowed to the victim. All the time she is subject to propaganda videos that eulogise terrorism, jihad and the ultimate victory of the religion. Though the racket had been going on for quite some years and several complaints of missing girls were lodged with Kerala Police, the latter ignored it saying that the girls had eloped and they could not do anything.

Whether one looks at the issue of Love Bombing or Flirty Fishing or Love Jihad, a conversion and “asset creating” technique used by Cults historically and now usurped and customized by Muslim groups – most notably backed and managed by Pakistan’s ISI – one realizes that there is a substantial body of cases that suggest a Coordinated, Deliberate, Well-financed strategy by Muslim youth in multiple geographies.  The strategy clearly involves using Love Jihad as a way to

  1. Bring about conversions to Islam in local population by stealth and deceit
  2. Use the new converted assets for penetrating difficult targets in furtherance of Islamic Jihad.

Plausible Deniability through Obfuscation by Paid/Illiterate Media and Bought Politicians / NGOs

To successfully use a covert strategy for Guerilla warfare – Terrorism is clearly one – without alarming the victim population, use of Plausible Deniability has often been used.  However, to create the veil of Deniability, it is important to do this in a secret and covert manner.

In case of Love Jihad, both, in Europe and India, therefore, it is unlikely that such techniques are openly discussed in the Mosques.  Chances are that they may be discussed in close quarters of known adherents of the cult and the Mosque but directed by some other force from behind.

That force, given the origin of the whole operations in Europe and India, seems to be Terror groups funded, backed and managed by Pakistan’s ISI.

Because of its secrecy, as maintained by an external agency, it is difficult to pin point its “fountainhead” in any society.  By obscuring it with the concept of “Love”, it is easy to take the high road and cry foul when someone actually discusses this.  Which is exactly where the Indian “Secular” media comes in.

It is now no longer possible to discuss the scourge of Love Jihad in a proper analytical way!  It is obfuscated by – First, questioning and ridiculing the very argument that such a technique exists, despite enough historical and empirical evidence in Conversion literature and how it has been used in Europe by Pakistani youth.  And, Second, by dismissing those who argue against it in the mainstream politics as “Right Wing Haters”.

The aversion to even discuss this issue in a serious manner with facts from around the world is so striking in the Indian media that it baffles one no end.  The Indian anchors, through their rhetoric, make Love Jihad as a concerted/deliberate/coordinated strategy against Indian society look like a possibility far less likely than UFOs visiting Varanasi!  Despite the overwhelming evidence – if one were to look at it seriously setting aside the mind-blowing condescension!!

Polarizing India via Condescension of the Secular!

We have discussed in detail on how Love Jihad is a reality.  In Europe and in India.  To brush aside, worse ridicule the victims and their plight by denying the basis of the very crime when it committed, given the numbers and the vicious intent, does the following:

  • Creates a feeling of alienation and mistrust of the media and the activists who shout “Secularism” but promote Islamism in its garb, amongst the majority population
  • In absence of proper action and widespread action by Muslim community internally – while maintaining and feigning denial – the affected community members sense a Moral Betrayal that makes them more likely to take matters in their own hands as opposed to it having been treated as a law and order situation!
  • Reverse strategy furthered in the affected community as a ploy to “get back” at the truant and criminals-backing community.

We are seeing, and will see more of all these three ramifications snowball out of control, if the so-called Secularism forwarding chest thumping self congratulating activists/NGOs/Politicians and Media people do not get their act together.  This is not a warning .. this is an obvious reading of the whole situation given how all these “Seculars” have chosen to play with fire feigning ignorance despite evidence to the contrary!
