Shahi Imam publicly calls for Love Jihad, Indian media doesn’t report it

While condemning the recent religious conversion of Muslims in Agra by a Hindu group, Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid ended up admitting what has been being denied by the Muslim leaders and liberal commentators recently.

Syed Ahmed Bukhari, the Shahi Imam, called on Muslims to fight such religious conversions through “Love Jihad” i.e. marrying Hindu women and converting them to Islam.

His call for Love Jihad, with the objective to increase population and strength of Muslims in India, came during the Friday prayers earlier this week, as reported by the website New Age Islam.

There is no reason to doubt the veracity of the website as it is run by a Muslim who himself is committed to propagate Islam.

Shahi Imam’s call for Love Jihad was greeted by slogans of “Allahu Akbar” by thousands of Muslims inside the mosque and outside it, the website reports.

While Shahi Imam’s uttering is on expected lines given the kind of statements he has been issuing ever since BJP announced Narendra Modi as its Prime Ministerial candidate, what is intriguing is the silence of the Indian media on this issue.

The India media, which doesn’t lose a minute in highlighting and amplifying any “controversial” statement by any random self-appointed Hindu leader with virtually no following, chose to ignore Shahi Imam’s speech delivered to a large crowd.

Is there a concerted attempt by the media to make sure that the unsuspecting public starts believing that fundamentalists Muslims don’t believe in “Love Jihad”, and that it is a myth propagated by likes of Yogi Adityanath?

One wishes that the Indian media was as honest and outspoken as Shahi Imam, who proved that the concept of Love Jihad was a reality and not any figment of imagination by some political groups looking for electoral benefits in Uttar Pradesh.
