The Anti Terror Squad of UP Police Friday busted a gang involved in mass conversion of people to Islam. The ATS has arrested Mufti Kazi Jehangir Alam and Mohammed Omar Gautam.
The investigation revealed that they had converted more than 1000 young and vulnerable people so far.
Prashant Kumar, ADG Law & Order UP, said, “UP ATS arrested two persons for their involvement in religious conversion on pretext of money, job & marriage of people from weaker economic sections & students. Probe revealed that the accused were funded by some international organisations including ISI.”
Both the arrested are residents of Jamia Nagar in Delhi. They were running Islamic Dawah Centre from Jamia Nagar to carry out their operations.
Noida-based Noida Deaf Society was on the radar of the conversion mafia. They used to lure the students with the offer of money, job, marriage and good life.
One Rajiv Yadav had complained that his son Mannu, who was a student at NDS, had converted to Islam and was threatening to kill his family. One Aditya Gupta’s parents had similar complaints.
When the UP Police investigated the claims, it found it to be true.
Rajiv Yadav said to the Organiser, “We noticed the changes in Mannu but had no information about what was going on behind the scenes. We complained to police and other authorities but no one helped us in the beginning.”
He expressed hope that his child would return home safely.
