    THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala Chief Minister V S Achutanandan's charge that the Popular Front of India (PFI), which allegedly masterminded the Taliban-style attack on a college lecturer, had plans to Islamize Kerala in 20 years using "money and marriages" has reignited the "love jihad' controversy, hotly debated in the state last year.

    Speaking to reporters in New Delhi on Saturday, VS said PFI was trying to multiply Muslim numbers in the state "by influencing youth of other religions and converting them by giving money, marrying them to Muslim women and thus producing kids of the community." In a way, the CM was endorsing the concerns expressed by the Kerala high court, which in August 2009, asked the state police to probe if there was an organised racket working to lure youth for conversion using love and money.

    The HC order followed allegations levelled by two girls that they were lured using love by boys who later tried to expose them to jihadi literature and sexual abuse by their friends. The judge called for a probe inviting protests from Muslim groups. Both, the Viswa Hindu Parishad and Church, however, found substance in the charges and produced their own assessment of the situation and even joined hands to combat it. Police initially told the HC that "there are reasons to suspect concerted efforts to persuade girls to change their religion after they fall in love with Muslim boys" but then the probe trailed.

    Later, another bench of the HC stayed the investigation.

    Reacting to VS's statement, PFI state unit president Nasaruddeen Elamaram said: "These are baseless charges which were examined and already rejected by the courts." BJP Mahila Morcha leader Sobha Surendran, however, doubted the CM's sincerity.
