In a shocking incident in Bikaner’s Sridungargarh town, Rajasthan, a Muslim teacher from a private school brainwashed minor Hindu girl and eloped with her. The incident has led to protests by her parents along with various Hindu organizations. As of now, the case has been registered against the teacher and her two brothers named Nadeem and Javed, who are reported to have been involved in the crime.

Reports suggest that the girl studied in AG Mission School, where 25-year old Nida Bahlim was a teacher. Nida was relative of the school owner, Abdul Gafoor. According to parents, girl left her house on June 30 at 7:30 p.m. and never came back. Later, Police inquiry revealed Nida was also missing since the same day. The girl’s father told the Police that Nida was increasing closeness with his daughter since more than two months. He even accused school administration that they knew about his daughter’s disappearance for quite a long time and still kept quiet.

Various Hindu organizations have called it a case of love jihad and protested outside the Police Station demanding the strict action against the accused. The Police have prima facie stated that the girl had eloped with the teacher of her own free will. However, as per the statement of parent and the modus operandi of Kerala love jihad scandals, brainwashing angle to the whole incident cannot be outright denied.
