MANGALURU: A Hindu woman, hailing from Badiyadka in Kasargod district of Kerala, who had eloped with a Muslim man, presented herself before the police after their registered marriage. However, her family members and Hindu groups have claimed that she is a victim of love jihad.

Neha Marali, a teacher at a private educational institution in Kasargod, had left home on May 23 and did not return. Following this, her father lodged a missing person’s complaint with the police and expressed apprehension that she may have been kidnapped.

However, photographs of Neha M and Mirshad M were found on the notice board of the sub-registrar’s office at Badiyadka and the couple later presented themselves before the Badiyadka police who produced them before a court in Kasargod. Neha told the court that she had gone with Mirshad on her own free will.

However, her family members and the Vishwa Hindu Parishat (VHP) have claimed that Neha is a victim of love jihad and alleged the involvement of Muslim League leaders. There is a conspiracy to target Hindu girls from poorer families and convert them to Islam, VHP leader Manjunath Manya said.
