Kerala: Right wing Christian group spreads anti-Muslim hate among school students, Muslim group files complaint

The Student Islamic Organization (SIO) has filed a complaint against right wing Christian group in Kerala, Christian Association and Alliance for Social Action (CASA), for spreading hatred against the Muslim community among school students in the name of “love jihad” and “narcotic jihad” in Pulpally, Wayanad district.

The complaint was filed by SIO Wayanad district president Muneeb NA Pulpally.

CASA is known for running Islamophobic campaigns against the Muslim community in Kerala.

Love jihad and narcotic jihad are the terms coined by right wing Hindu and Christian groups, to spread anti-Muslim sentiments in the society.

The CASA program was organized last week in Pulpally in Wayanad district.

The organizers used their Facebook page to share the program information. According to the caption, an awareness session was held in Pulpally on Sunday, organized by the Casa Wayanad District Committee, to educate people about Love Jihad and Narcotic Jihad. The Wayanad district officials Jyotish PT and AB Joy conducted the session.

The accompanying photo depicts over a hundred attendees, fifty percentage of them are school students.

The SIO expressed concerns that the organizers were promoting hate among school students.

Maktoob attempted to contact CASA for comment, but received no response.

The complaint has been lodged against the organizers of the event, who intended to spread hatred about the Muslim community.

The SIO has urged the authorities to take strict action against those who promote such activities and maintain social harmony in the region.
