“LOVE Jihad is a massive threat to our Hindu girls”
says another one of Tinku Ray’s interviewees, one of the Hindu moral policemen that operate violently in Mangalore.
“Love jihad is when Hindu girls marry Muslims and are converted to Islam to carry out dubious activities. We are not against love, but today, Hindu girls specially are going off with Muslim boys. The boys tell them they love them but if they do love them, why can’t they declare it openly? By being so secretive, they show their true color.”
When confronted with the fact that India’s different societies tend to generally be very conservative and so a lot of these cases may be genuine love that cannot be declared publicly for the fear of the backlash that it may have within their families and the places where they live, the love jihad theorist replies:
“these people want to take Hindu girls and convert them. That is why be believe that Hindu girls should not be with Muslim boys.”
