'Love jihad is a reality': Kerala church says women being lured by IS

Jan 15, 2020 22:52 IST

An influential Catholic Church in Kerala has said that "Love Jihad is a reality" and has alleged that many women from the Christian community were being lured into the trap of Islamic State and used in terror activities. The synod of Syro-Malabar Church, an apex body of Catholic Bishops, also said that 'Love Jihad' is happening in a planned manner, targeting Christian girls. The Synod, referring to a police record, said out of 21 people recruited from Kerala into the Islamic State terror outfit, half of them were converted from Christian faith. Meanwhile, Kerala Finance Minister Thomas Isaac has said that the allegations of the Bishops have "no factual basis."
