'India very important for world religions' conference'

Mumbai:  The reports saying the Maharashtra Government has given an order to the Criminal Investigation Agency (CID) to check whether Muslim boys are enticing Hindu girls into love affairs and then marrying them as part of a larger conspiracy have no substance, said Nitin Raut Minister of State for Home (Rural).


“That the CID will probe the inter community marriages between Muslim boys and Hindu girls and vice-versa, is totally baseless. We have neither given any statement nor have issued any order to the State CID in this regard. The news that appeared in the English Daily is incorrect and does not have any basis”, a Mumbai Urdu daily has quoted Nitin Raut as saying in a press conference yesterday on June 04 outside his Mantralya bungalow.


A Leading national English daily had carried a news report that said, the state CID has been told to check whether Muslim boys are enticing Hindu girls as part of a larger ‘conspiracy’.  “I will initiate an inquiry into this”, the newspaper has quoted Minister of State for Home (Rural) Nitin Raut as saying. “However, the opposition had demanded a CID probe, terming the issue as serious. Raut had then given in to their demands”, the newspaper wrote in its front page anchor story.


However, in yesterday’s press conference Nitin Raut vehemently denied having given any such statement or order to the state CID. Stating that the government has no intention in interfering in the marriages that take place between two adults he said, “There is no law in the country that allows the government to interfere into the marriages that take place between two adults even if they belong to different communities.”


Recalling what had happened on June 16, the last day of the assembly session, Nitin Raut said that BJP MLAs Eknath Khadse and Devendra Fadnavis had alleged that Muslim youths in rural areas were wooing Hindu college girls, marrying them after converting their religion and sending them to Gulf countries as part of a ‘conspiracy’ to increase the strength of the community.


“The BJP after facing humiliating defeat in the parliamentary elections is trying to create communal disharmony in the state by spreading such news reports as it faces tough fight in the coming assembly elections”, Nitin Raut said while warning, “The Government will strongly deal with anyone trying to create communal tension in the state.”


Interestingly the English daily that carried the report as front page anchor story on the sensitive issue, later vehemently denied by the concerned Minister, repeated the story in the same issue on page 3. The story had received widespread condemnation even before Minister's clarifications.


"The newspaper seems to be searching for the reports that lead to Muslim bashing of late. It is only losing its credibility by publishing such reports that create discomfort in the society and damage the inter community relations", said Aisha Tanvir, a lecturer with a local college.
