Mangaluru, Nov 27: Vishva Hindu Parishad has urged a woman, who had converted from Hinduism to Islam and married a Muslim man from Dakshina Kannada, to convert back to Hinduism.

A team of VHP comprising of Sharan Pumpwell, Surekha Raj, Lateesh Gundya and others met Asiya Ibrahim Khaleel aka Shanti Joobi on November 26 and took her to Sullia police station in Dakshina Kannada district to lodge a complaint against the family of her ‘missing’ husband.

The development comes a day after Asiya Ibrahim Khaleel approached the media seeking help to get united with her husband Ibrahim Khaleel Kattekar, whose family is reportedly forcing him to stay away from her.

Asiya, accompanied by Aadhunik Human Rights Committee leaders Rajesh Coelho and Shabbir Ullal, had claimed in a press conference that her husband’s elder brother Shihab had even threatened her to kill her when she had visited her in-law’s house in Sullia in search of her husband.

Asiya, who hailed from Kerala’s Kannur had fallen in love with Ibrahim Khaleel Kattekar, son of Abdul Haji Kattekar after becoming his Facebook friend. Gradually she converted to Islam and on July 12, 2017 they got married. The couple stayed in rented houses in Bengaluru, Mysuru and other places.

According to Asiya, one day Shihab forcefully took her husband away to their house in Sullia and then never allowed him to meet her. She also claimed that she had given money several times exceeding Rs 25 lakh, two luxury cars and two scooters to her husband’s family as per Shihab’s demand.

Naturals Ice Cream founder Raghunandan Kamath passed away following a brief illness. Born to a mango vendor in a village in Mangaluru, Kamath went on to establish Naturals, an ice cream parlour estimated to be worth Rs 400 crore today. 

"Our thoughts on the sad demise of our patron and founder of Naturals Ice Cream, Late Raghunandan Kamath. Indeed a very sad and unfortunate day for us," the company said.

Mr Kamath grew up helping his father in selling mangoes in a village Karnataka's Mangaluru. This was when he learned the art of picking the ripe fruit, plucking it, sorting it, and preserving it.

As the legend goes, a young 14-year-old Kamath boarded a train from Mangaluru and came to Mumbai (then Bombay). 

After working at his brother’s restaurant, Kamath had an idea — if ice creams have fruit flavours, why can’t they have real fruits. He decided to fill this void in the market. But unsure of whether customers would come, he began his business with serving pav-bhaji as the main dish and the ice cream as an add on.

His first ice cream parlour was launched in 1984 in Juhu, with the initial menu featuring around 12 flavours, each being a testament to the knowledge he acquired during the time he assisted his father in Mangaluru.

The demand kept growing and he opened five more outlets in 1994. Currently, it has over 165 outlets across 15 cities.
 
His story was captured expansively in ‘Intelligent Fanatics of India’, a book co-authored by Mumbai-based journalist Pooja Bhula.

Inspired by his mother's techniques, Kamath also developed innovative machines to streamline production and ensure consistency, notes the company website.
