  • A recent shock of 21 people had gone missing comes another case of a girl converted from Aparna to Shahana
  • A similar case of Kerala’s Nimisha turning Fathima got the public’s fury recently

Aparna, a student of aeronautical engineering in Kochi, suddenly went missing one day. In this precarious situation, her mother was left with no option and filed a missing report with the Kerala Police. After the investigation, she was located in Calicut.

Aparna was traced at Sathya Sarini, an institute that aims to spread the word of Islam among non-Muslim communities. She had now been converted as a Muslim, going from Aparna to Shahana. A revelation that shook the whole country!

An intelligence report prepared by Kerala’s state police has recognised two conversion centres in Kozhikode (or Calicut) and Malappuram which has converted people to Islam over these years. An estimated 5,793 non-Muslims have been forcibly converted to Islam between 2011 and 2015. It is also feared that the number of converted Muslims at ‘unrecognised’ centres is much higher.

Aparna was a hostel resident from August 2013 at Jual Education Trust, Ernakulam.

The TOI report also states, more than half of the converted people are women. An approximate of 76% of the total are women below 35 years of age, with Nimisha alias Fathima and Aparna as some of the easy targets. Aparna now refuses to go home with her parents, and when presented before the High Court, she insisted on going with Sumayya, who also took Aparna to the court. This is the face of extreme Islamic radicalism that the nation and worldwide countries are encountering with.

The religious conversion centres ‘authorised’ in the state are Tharbiyathul Islam Sabha, Kozhikode, and Monunsthil Islam Sabha, Ponnani, where most conversions take place. Allegedly 4,719 of those converted were Hindus and the rest 1,074 were Christian, mentioned a TOI report.

Another detailed report is to be carried out to ascertain whether the cases of Nimisha and Aparna are forced conversions and if they have joined ISIS. “Inquiries are required to know whether this will affect the communal harmony, internal security of the state and nation. A detailed SSB (State Special Branch) inquiry in Kasaragod, Kannur, Alappuzha, Thiruvananthapuram, and Palakkad is recommended to unearth the details,” said the report that was sent by the SP of Kasaragod, A. Srinivas, who had also investigated the case of Nimisha’s conversion in November 2015.

    It’s very unfortunate nowadays that journalism inspired by hate spreading of rss had stooped so low! instead of an introspection on hostile Hindu practices against women, this article is trying to portray that an adult girl has been”forced”to escape a life of oppression and subjugation.grow up “Hindu isis” !!

    • Berserker

      yes you mullehs have such friendly practices for women…covering 2 year olds in burqas….and hindu isis …..you are so funny..

      Oppression can be seen by covering head to toe. Mullah with peanut brain will always be dumbheaded

  • Manthra koliyer

    Religion should not be forced on anybody.

  • Anubhuti Gupta

    If it indeed it was forced conversion it is a truly sad news with complicated implications for country.

  • sas_sarma

    The time has come to ban conversions, declare India as Hindu state. Those who talk of freedom of religion should do it in Saudi Arabia, Iran and other countries. The conversion through sword is as dangerous as conversion through smile and service.

    When Turkey govt.,banned Khaffiye ( muslim caps ) in Turkey there was a huge opposition in muslim world including India. Even Gandhi asked hindus to stand by the freedom of Muslim “brothers”. Muslims took out violent rallies thru out India. While doing so, they hurt Hindus out of anger and forcibly converted nearly 30,000 hindus in Mallaparam district in India. Gandhi was compelled to roll back the agitation.

    In Kerala, Catholics are busy converting hindus. They joined muslims, keeping a watchful eye on them too as they hate the muslims too. Both, Muslims and catholics also use communists to hurt and kill hindus deliberately brutally . But muslims intimidate hindus and christians alike under the full protection of Sonia Gandhi and AP combo.

    The fattu Mawalli baxxxrds like Rajdeep, Barkha, Karan , etc….are silent. They themselves are so much afraid and become gilipil to talk about muslims. They are shamelessly busy abusing Modi, bcs. it is easy.

People Use Hate Speech While Searching About Terrorism on Social Media

People post hate speech while seeking answers on terrorism

People often resort to using hate speech when searching about terrorism on a community group social media platform, say researchers.

According to Snehasish Banerjee, lecturer at the York Management School, University of York, it appears seems that people are really curious to know about terrorists, what terrorists think, their ideas, etc.

“While portrayed as a threat to society and human civilisation by mainstream media, terrorists sell terrorism as freedom fighting via social networking sites and private messaging platforms,” said Banerjee.

“However, the actual workings of terrorism are largely shrouded in secrecy. For the curious, a convenient avenue to turn to is the community question answering sites”.

Community question answering sites (CQAs) are social media platforms where users ask questions, answer those submitted by others, and have the option to evaluate responses. Previous studies have mainly looked at terrorism-related data drawn from Facebook and Twitter, this was the first to examine trends on the CQA site, Yahoo! Answers.

The University of York study explored the use of Yahoo! Answers on the topic of terrorism and looked at a dataset of 300 questions that attracted more than 2,000 answers. The questions reflected the community’s information needs, ranging from the life of extremists to counter-terrorism policies. Sensitive questions outnumbered innocuous ones.

A typical innocuous question was: Who exactly created ISIS?, while a more sensitive question was: Do you agree with Donald Trump that we should ban Muslims coming from countries seized by ISIS, Al Qaeda and other terrorists? According to the findings, sensitive questions were significantly more likely to be submitted anonymously than innocuous ones.

While no significant difference arose with respect to answers, the paper found that identities were seldom recognisable. Using names non-traceable to themselves, the community group users become embolden to use provocative, inflammatory or uncivil language. “We found that answers were laden with negative emotions reflecting hate speech and Islamophobia, making claims that were rarely verifiable,” said Banerjee.

Users who posted sensitive questions and answers generally tended to remain anonymous.

“This paper calls for governments and law enforcement agencies to collaborate with major social media companies, including CQAs, to develop a process for cross-platform blacklisting of users and content, as well as identifying those who are vulnerable,” the authors noted in the Aslib Journal of Information Management.
