In a disturbing incident unfolding in Damoh, Madhya Pradesh, a Hindu woman has been subjected to abduction, torture, and stabbing by individuals allegedly driven by religious animosity stemming from her son’s interfaith marriage. The victim endured three days of physical assault at the hands of four Islamist youths in Jabalpur before managing to escape.

According to the victim’s harrowing account, she suffered brutal physical violence, including stabbing, during her captivity, which was reportedly sparked by her son’s recent marriage to a Muslim girl. Despite her escape, she and her daughter now face renewed threats of murder and rape from the same assailants, underscoring the gravity of the situation.

Reports suggest that local authorities have been criticized for their alleged inaction, with claims that no case has been registered against the Islamist culprits. Amidst mounting pressure, Hindu activists and Bajrang Dal intervened, urging the police to take swift action against the perpetrators. However, there are allegations that the police initially refrained from registering a case against the attackers.

The incident highlights the dangers of religious extremism and the vulnerability of individuals targeted due to interfaith relationships. It also underscores the urgent need to address radical Islamist ideologies and safeguard the rights and safety of individuals from the Hindu community.

Instances of “love jihad” and violence against Hindus, even in cases where Muslim girls choose to marry Hindu boys, continue to perpetuate a cycle of intolerance and violence. Hindu organizations like Bajrang Dal have been actively advocating for justice and protection in such cases, emphasizing the importance of upholding communal harmony and ensuring the safety of all citizens, regardless of their religious affiliation.
