  • Radicalization of Youth is now becoming a threat to nation

New Delhi, June 25, 2017:

The name of a street in Thuruthi ward of Kasaragod municipality was recently changed to Gaza, which stands as a reference to the contentious land between Israel and Egypt. The intelligence agencies call the alteration a Radical influence.

“It is not just the Muslims are being swayed by their caliphate but also the Hindus are being hunted and turned into the ISIS terrorist”, reported Times Now blatantly speaking about the Radicalization of Youth for terrorism. Not just that, a report in altnews.in say the rate cards “mysterious” and fake and discards them, calling it a propaganda against Islam.

The Conversion rate mentioned by Times Now goes like this-

  • Hindu (Brahmin Girl)= 5L
  • Hindu (Kshatriya Girl)= 4.5L
  • Hindu (OBC, SC, ST)= 2L

The mainstream media group also aired the rate card ranging from 7 lakh to 1 lakh for conversion to Islam which states the prices of conversion for women belonging to the different class of society with the hashtag “#CaliphateConvertsHindus”.

According to the rate card, the highest bid is 7 lakh for converting Punjabi Sikh girl, 6 lakh for Gujarati girl, 5 lakh for Brahmin Hindu girl and so on.

Another video posted by Times Now highlights the chilling testimony of a mother whose daughter was intending to go to learn Syrian Language and read Quran. The mother told Times Now that she noticed a sudden change of behaviour in her daughter in the duration of one month. She used to walk and talk on phone nonstop for hours. Another 22 years old IS sympathiser Konakalla Subramanyam alias omer embraced Islam, while the family members say they did not know when their son adopted Islam, The Hindu reported.

The radicalization of Youth: Internet, Love Jihad or Poverty?

Radicalization is a major threat to the country with more than 5000 people converted to Islam in the past five years in Kerala. Radicalization is a process in which the extremist groups contempt the holistic ideas and expressions of a nation. Radicalization can be both – violent and non-violent, however when thoughts like “violence is the only way” beings to brew, radical thoughts become lethal for the country as a whole. Violence as an instrument and lack of freedom of expression is a feature of Radicalization. It serves as a kind of sociological trap which will satisfy the material and spiritual need of those afflicted from radical thoughts.

Time and again, Islamic extremist groups have been connecting with the youths through online messaging services and Social Medi, manipulating them to join the violent forces in the communal wars. Radicalization brew from myriads of places but one out of many sources which are now a threat the of the nation is – ‘internet”. Terrorists have used social media platforms exhaustively to buttress their hideous goals and spread their message. Terror groups like Islamic state of Iraq and Syria have used social media to disseminate the video of beheading the US nationals in the past. This created a lot of havoc among the people and thus led to the fulfilment of their agendas. Not only this, Taliban has been active on Twitter from the name “@alemarahweb” since 2011 and has more than 7000 followers. The account was later suspended by Twitter.

Love Jihad” is another alleged activity under which Muslim men target young Non-Muslim girls and influence their conversion to Islam by feigning love. The notion of Love Jihad first rose in Kerela, and by October 2009 up to 4,500 girls in Kerala were targeted according to the Kerela Catholic Bishops Council, while the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti claimed that 30,000 girls had been converted in Karnataka alone. Love Jihad gradually penetrated in Pakistan and United States also. These groups used emotional appeals like “Love bombings” or interpreted the sacred religious text to persuade people.

Some also argue that in India, Radicalization does not concern itself entirely with the religion. Rather, it is the outcome of dissatisfaction over political and social issues, and it appeals the most appropriate to a particular section of youth. These issues, combined with religious conservatism, may lead to jihadist tendencies.

It is still ambiguous what factors make potential recruits open to persuasion to join Jihadist movement that incites violent protest and terrorism. This ‘open-to-persuasion’ phase is marked by growing compassion with terrorist organisations and political causes that sanction the use of violence.

The term, Love Jihad is making rounds from the last couple of few years and has emerged as a hot topic for debate in our society. It is quite prevalent in many of the Indian states. As per the various statements of the Hindu activists, Love Jihad is when a Muslim boy manipulates a Hindu girl to get married by forcing them to convert to Islam. The next thing follows it is, preaching of sermons to the young girls. In such cases, Muslim boys are instructed to lure the Hindu girls with various techniques and gain their trust.

Many politicians and public figures have come forward to raise their voice against the menace of Love Jihad. A few months back, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also attested the very fact of Love Jihad in Kerala. The southern states are a major victim of this peril.

In 2006, Bajrang Dal leaders declared a campaign to save the Hindu girls from the clutches of Muslim boys. Then the angle of Love Jihad in Karnataka was very much a reality. There the situation was such that the members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad started dragging the Hindu girls who used to be found mingled with Muslim boys to the police station. Then the girl was shame by summoning their parents and publishing their names in local newspapers. In some places, Church was very much in apprehension regarding Love Jihad.

Congress and other LEFT parties have claimed it to be a hoax. In one of the speeches, even the former Kerala DGP also highlighted and accepted the very reality of it.

In one of a recent incident, a person named Niraj Gera published an ordeal of a girl, who went through the nightmare of Love Jihad. The plight of the girl was very much spine-chilling as per her story. She was mentally tortured by the Muslim boy and his family. Fortunately, at last, the girl was lucky enough to get out of the merciless clutches of the boy.

There is no doubt that fake news makes the circle in our society but it doesn’t change the very fact of Love Jihad. The thing remains a hoax until it strikes you. People who are encouraging it are not even doing justice to their own faith itself.
