Aparna’s conversion to Shahana: Is it Forced Islamic Conversion of Hindus in Kerala?

Aparna was traced at Sathya Sarini, an institute that aims to spread the word of Islam among non-Muslim communities

  • An estimated 5,793 non-Muslims have been forcibly converted to Islam between 2011 and 2015
  • 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.
