The Vishwa Umiya Dham organization has embarked on a unique initiative to combat cases of love jihad across the country, including their home state. The initiative will see five women, whose life stories inspired the film “Kerala Story”, visit Vishwa Umiya Dham.
An awareness camp has been set up at Shree Umiya K.V.C. Nursing College, where these women will share their experiences. The program is expected to draw more than two thousand girls from various communities. The initiative’s goal is to safeguard these young women from becoming victims of love jihad. The film ‘The Kerala Story’ will be screened for the attendees.
R.P. Patel, the President of Umiadham, stated that the joint initiative of Vishwa Umiadham and KVC Umiya College aims to raise awareness among girls from all communities, including Patidars, about incidents of love jihad. This marks the launch of the ‘Awareness Campaign Against Love Jihad’.
The five women who will be sharing their stories are:
- Shruti: A former teacher who was brainwashed by fundamentalists to convert to Islam. After five years, she returned to Sanatan Dharma and is now working to enlighten young women.
- Shantikrishna: A nurse who fell prey to Christian fundamentalism while working in the Maldives. She returned to Sanatan Dharma through contact with Arsh Vidya Samaj.
- Anadha: A physiotherapist who was influenced into Islam by her college friends. After connecting with AVS, she now serves as a full-time preacher.
- Anusha: A scientist from Bangalore who, along with Anadha, has become a full-time campaigner working to protect other women from love jihad.
- Vaishali: An IT professional who was radicalized by Islamic colleagues but returned to Sanatan Dharma after coming in contact with Arsh Vidya Samaj.
