Love Jihad or Predatory Dawah?: Shocking Ground Stories of Conversion
Due to the rhetoric and aggressive discourse building on 'Love-Jihad' done by comprador media and embedded agencies of the international Left, genuine tragedy and loss faced by victims has been denied.
This book lays bare the agony of victims and families who have been targeted by predatory Dawah-A larger and more fundamental push for conversion by many means.
This includes targeted weaponisation of love, sexual predation, economic exploitation, compulsion to fight religious wars (Jihad) etc.
Unless society and law recognize the sufferings of these victims, justice for these women is a far cry. This book is an important reading for parents and youth as well as a call for recognition for the severe gender injustice committed against the documented individuals.
Eye opening book showing the mirror to seculars and telling truth about islamic Jihad.

PREFACEOn 27 October, 2020, Nikita Tomar, returning from her final year examination was brutally murdered in broad daylight at Ballabhgarh, Haryana. A bright star of her family, she faced no restrictions at home. Her family supported her every attempt to fly high. Yet her wings were clipped, and she was murdered.
A number of questions arose in our minds. The whys and whats were answered when the Group of Intellectuals and Academicians (GIA) made a fact-finding visit to the victim’s house. This fact finding also led to more such cases coming to our notice. The GIA met and spoke to many women who had stories of grooming, pursuit and conversion to tell. What we unearthed were sordid tales of physical and sexual exploitation in which religious motivation played a significant role.
The Group of Intellectuals and Academicians (GIA) is a group of women dedicated to the pursuit of research- based evidence and intervention on key social and political issues. Based in New Delhi, the group comprises professionals from different disciplines—teachers, lawyers, media persons and entrepreneurs.
GIA undertook a project to meet, interview and document cases that fall within the spectrum of inter- religious relationships. This is a compilation of such cases.
Grooming, Love bombing and Love Jihad are issues that must concern all communities, and the Hindus- Sikhs-Muslims-Christians need to converge to agree that radical religious pursuit of any woman is not permissible when the facade of ‘love’ is used as a pretext for conversion. This is pure savagery against women.
During this journey, we realized that not only are the women victimised in inter-faith relationships, marginalized by law enforcement and society but their bodies are also political booty. Their own stories get lost in the political din raised around choice in relationships. Very often vested media has tried to falsify these experiences through deceit and subterfuge.
The research and data compiling for this project was undertaken by Monika Arora, Sonali Chitalkar, Monicca Agarwaal, Shruti Mishra, Vijeta Aggarwal and Ambika. We are thankful to Shresth Tiwari for his research inputs into this project. Akash Vajpayee has also contributed to the writing of this book. Special thanks to Dr. Pratibha Singh for her contribution towards this project.
