Budding Marathi actress and model Neha Khan, known for playing ACP Divya Singh in Zee Marathi’s TV Series Devmanus, had revealed how her mother had become a victim of Grooming/Love jihad, a phenomenon which has been time and again dismissed by the leftist media as a fictional concept. Her Hindu mother had married a Muslim man with two wives, and after the marriage, she had to face horrific tortures in the family of her in-laws.
OpIndia has been extensively reporting on how this phenomenon of forceful and rampant religious conversions has been plaguing the country. From luring Hindu women disguising as a Hindu man to target them for conversion to Islam by means such as seduction, feigning love, deception, kidnapping, and marriage, there’s no dearth of cases to indicate how the forced religious conversion industry works like a well-oiled and planned machinery. But of course, the mainstream media and the left ecosystem have once again have turned a blind eye to Hindu (even Sikhs and Christians) victims.
Speaking on Lokmat’s Bai Manoos program, aired on the Marathi newspaper’s YouTube channel on February 6, 2020, the teary-eyed Marathi actress narrated her mother’s sufferings and struggles which began after she accepted to become Neha Khan’s father’s third wife.
Neha Khan revealed during the interview that her mother, who is a Marathi, married her Muslim father, who was already then married to two other women, by going against her family. Since it was an interfaith marriage, both Neha’s paternal and maternal sides of the family did not accept them. Because of this, she along with her brother and mother lived separately, said the Marathi actress.
Neha described how her mother overcame all the challenges life threw at her on her own, without the help of her father.
She revealed that when her parents got married, her father already had a daughter who was of her mother’s age. Her father’s second wife disliked her mother because she did not want to share the property with her. When Neha’s father started giving them attention, his second wife sent goons to their house to attack them, said Neha.
