Thiruvananthapuram, Sept 9: The Syro Malabar Church Pala diocese bishop Mar Joseph Kallarangatt on Thursday said that Catholic girls in Kerala were now becoming the victims of 'Love and narcotic Jihad'.

He said this while speaking at a Church celebration in Kottayam district's Kuruvilangadu, which comes under his diocese. 

"Wherever arms cannot be used, narcotics are being used and it's here Catholic girls become the victims. And to help this there is a group in Kerala which is functioning. To understand this, one needs to just analyse, how come ladies from other religions reached the IS camps," said the bishop. 

"As part of Love jihad, ladies are getting converted and there is an increased usage of drugs by Catholic youths. All this is being done to see no non-Muslims are there and to help in all this there is a group and all should be cautious," added the bishop. 

He went on to state that any attempt to deny that there exists 'Love Jihad' in Kerala is like closing eyes to reality and is being done by vested interests with a reason. 

"There is a plan going on to forcefully bring in Muslim thoughts and all Catholics should be aware of this and be watchful," said Kallarangatt. 

The news of Keralites joining the IS surfaced after the Kerala government contacted various Central agencies -- IB, NIA and RAW in 2016 about the veracity of reports about 19 missing people from the state, and according to some of the relatives they are believed to have joined the IS. 

These 19 included 10 men, six women and three children and of these, most of them hail from Kasargode and a few from Palakkad districts and includes Christian and Hindu converts.

Bengaluru, Oct 11: Four families from Karnataka's Chitradurga district, including the mother of BJP legislator Goolihatti Shekhar, have reverted to Hinduism after living as Christians.

"Individuals of four families, including my mother have made 'ghar wapasi' after living as Christians. They have finally rectified their mistake," Shekhar told reporters near Chitradurga.

He said the families who returned to Hinduism on Monday offered prayers at a temple and expressed happiness at their decision to revert to Hinduism.

These families, Shekhar said, were tricked into conversion and he had to work hard to bring them back to their original faith.

Raising the issue in the Monsoon Session of the state assembly, Shekhar had claimed that more than 20,000 people including his mother converted to Christianity.

Calling conversion "a national problem and a conspiracy to divide people", he had also pressed for a stringent bill to curb conversion.

In his reply, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had said that the government was seriously considering a law to ban forced religious conversions in the state.

BJP-ruled states like Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh have already enforced anti-conversion laws to check conversion by force or allurement.

Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra also had raised concerns on the issue and pushed for introducing Uttar Pradesh-like law.

He had sought details of organisations that were slapping false charges against those who raised their voices against conversion.

Senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah on October 1 had opposed forcible religious conversion, but had added that those who wanted to convert on their own should not be stopped.

Jammu, Oct 11: In one of the bloodiest encounters this year, five Army soldiers, including an officer, were killed during an anti-insurgency operation in Jammu and Kashmir’s border Poonch district on Monday.

A defence spokesman said the operation was launched in a village close to Dera Ki Gali in Surankote, Poonch, during early hours of Monday following inputs about the presence of terrorists there.

“The hiding terrorists opened heavy fire on the search parties resulting in critical injuries to a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) and four other ranks. They died from their injuries,” he said.

There are reports that a group of heavily-armed militants have managed to sneak from across the Line of Control (LoC) and are hiding in Chamrer forest in Poonch, sources said. Reinforcements of both Army and police, including senior officers, have rushed to the spot.

Bengaluru, Oct 11: The state government Monday hinted at starting schools in Karnataka for classes 1 to 5 after Dasara.

Primary and Secondary Education Minister BC Nagesh said, "We will be convening a meeting of the technical committee after the Dasara festival. In the meeting, we will request them to give permission to start schools for classes 1 to 5."

He told reporters that if the technical committee does not give its permission, then it will be requested to grant permission to start schools for classes 3 to 5.

The government will also restart the midday meal programme after Dasara vacation, Nagesh said.

Replying to another query, he said a decision on setting up a school fee regulation committee will be taken after receiving the fee model report from other states.
