Misleading media reports claimed 40,000 women went missing in Gujarat; police busted propaganda by sharing facts

Amid the rising controversy around the film, ‘The Kerala Story’ some media reports claimed that 40,000 women went missing in Gujarat as per the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data from 2016 to 2020. However, the Gujarat police fact-checked the reports with numbers claiming out of 41,621 women who had gone missing, approximately 95 per cent, or 39,497 women were traced and reunited with their families.

The police added that the data is part of the National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB), New Delhi, which was cited by many media organisations to claim that over 40,000 women had been missing in Gujarat.

There are media reports citing data sources of National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB), New Delhi that 40,000 women have gone missing in Gujarat in 5-years. However, out of 41,621 women gone missing during the period 2016-20 as per the data published in Crime in India-2020

Taking it to Twitter the Gujarat police from their official Twitter Handle wrote, “Out of 41,621 women gone missing during the period 2016-20 as per the data published in Crime in India-2020 published by National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB), New Delhi, 39,497 (94.90%) of the missing women have been traced by Gujarat Police and they are united with their families. The said information is also part of Crime in India, 2020,” the Gujarat Police tweeted.

Based on the police investigation, the primary reasons for women going missing are identified as family disputes, elopement, and academic failures, among other factors. The police, however, clarified that the investigation into missing person cases has not revealed any “episodes of trafficking for sexual exploitation, organ trafficking, etc.”

Shockingly these reports were endorsed by big media channels including New Indian Express, News 24 and other social media influencers and Congress leaders. The big names sharing the story include Radio Jockey Saema, who comments on minority issues and often makes controversial statements against the ruling party and the majority of Hindus in the country. Joining her was the controversial journalist and The Wire fame Arfa Khanum, who is known to be behind the ruling party since the Gujarat riots.

The figures showed up immediately after the release and demanded the ban against the film ‘The Kerala Story’. The film dropped a teaser last year which showed how 32,000 non-Muslim women were forced into Islamic conversion and were later inducted into ISIS.

Notably, after pleas were heard at the Kerala High Court, the makers removed the part from the film and took down the teaser claiming that 32,000 women were converted and inducted into ISIS. This was a generalised figure, as said the makers.

Even after the court’s approval, the film is banned in West Bengal and parts of Tamil Nadu.

Why is the Bajrang Dal Maligned ?

Whenever there is a religious attack on Hindu festivals anywhere the country, it is Bajrang Dal that responds first. The first retaliation comes from Bajrang Dal even though they have to face various kinds of attacks and allegations and harassment by the secular judiciary.

Young people of this generation, younger than 20-25 years of age, are probably not aware of the crucial role that Bajrang Dal has played in the awakening of Hindutva. Bajrang Dal was established in Ayodhya on Oct 8, 1984.

This was the time when most states in India had governments that were anti-Hindu and Muslim appeasement was their only agenda. It appeared as though Hindus were second class citizens and it was inconceivable to expect justice from the government or the police. Bajrang Dal emerged as a ray of hope in those dark times. Their motto was service, security and culture. And their style of functioning was exactly like Hanuman ji’s army.

Bajrang Dal was the savior of Hindu religion and they took bullets from Mulayam Singh Yadav’s police to make Ram Mandir happen. In small towns of Uttar Pradesh then, there was terror of religious mafia; Swords and knives were whipped out at the slightest pretext. The Police were not to be found anywhere. It was then that Bajrang Dal stepped up for the protection of houses, shops, property belonging to Hindus and Hindu women were protected. Bajrang Dal shielded Hindu girls when a campaign to lure them in the name of religion and physically exploit them began. 

Bajrang Dal workers used to be aware of social issues. And they also knew how to pick up a stick and put up a fight when it became imperative. And, in no time at all, Bajrang Dal’s branches spread all over the country. 

In Uttar Pradesh, in many towns and small cities, you find a whole generation of women who could completed their studies from school to BA, MA, thanks solely due to unstinting support from Bajrang Dal. The parents were reassured that their daughter would come back home home safely in the evening. This was also the time when Bajrang Dal used to campaign for marriage without dowry. The organisation had people from all strata and classes in its ranks. There was never a feeling of high-low or difference of rich and poor.

Bajrang Dal’s service rubbed the secular gangs the wrong way and thus began a negative, smear campaign against Bajrang, to tarnish the organisation’s image not just in the country but across the world.

Bajrang Dal was banned after the Babri demolition in 1992. Later, the ban had to be revoked. 

In 1998, the Christian-controlled international organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) accused the Bajrang Dal of church attacks, but had failed to produce any evidence to support its accusations.

Then in the Gujarat riots of 2002, every effort was made to wipe out the Bajrang Dal.

In 2005, NDTV channel claimed that Bajrang Dal workers in Nanded, Maharashtra, were making bombs to blast mosques across the country. The entire story later turned out to be fake news.

During Valentine’s Day, media stories abounded to defame Bajrang Dal. 

Once the Manmohan Singh-Sonia Gandhi’s government came into power, it seemed that the only goal of the entire state machinery was to obliterate the existence of Bajrang Dal. Allegations made against the organisation ranged from terrorism to beating up of couples on Valentine’s Day. Bajrang Dal tried to challenge the conversion campaign of Christian missionaries in India but had to pay the price for this intervention. 

To start with, media portrayed Bajrang Dal as the villain, and then false police cases and lawsuits were thrust on its leaders. This immense hatred of the government machinery and judicial system made a large number of Bajrang Dal workers sacrifice themselves. This lofty act of sacrificing themselves for the nation and society continues even today. And these noble workers had the cognizance and support of neither the Supreme Court nor the organizations that play the game of protection of human rights.

Bajrang Dal is a symbol of resistance power of Hindu society. Wherever the power and influence of Bajrang Dal waned, anti-national religious forces got maximum opportunity and audacity to raise their heads.

Security, no doubt, is the responsibility of the government and the police. But where an entire social class is being trained since childhood to chase and kill the infidels, there is little to expect from the police stations and we will see the same outrage that we see every day now in states like Bengal and Kerala.

As a society, we should always remember Bajrang Dal and its unparalleled services. The fact that some patriotic youths protected Hindu identity and self-respect in the dark times of the Congress and socialist regimes should never be forgotten. Bajrang Dal workers are warriors who protect our religion. Support them… And oppose the forces that are working with all their might to destroy these Hindu patriots.

The Kerala Story: Brutal reality of love jihad, weaknesses of Hindu society hit hard enough to trigger a rude awakening

By: Ratan Sharda for Firstpost

When the teaser for The Kerala Story was released a few months ago, there was a bitter backlash from both overt and covert Islamist groups. As a result, cases were filed against the film’s producer, Vipul Amrutlal Shah, and its director, Sudipto Sen. Having studied Love Jihad and the trafficking of victim girls and boys to Jihadi battlefields in the Middle East, the story was not unfamiliar to me. I had previously interviewed two Christian clerics from different sects in Kerala more than a year ago. During the interview, they discussed their research and meetings with victim families of Love Jihad and explained the techniques used by Jihadis to ensnare girls. Two years ago, approximately 3,000 Christian girls had disappeared from just one sect of Kerala Christians.

However, reading and talking to people is one thing but watching the same story on screen is very different. It hits you hard. I had the fortune of watching a preview of the film and I came out shaken.

The film opens on the big screen with some stunning visuals of huge arid mountains with snow-capped peaks in the background and a haunting song that stays with you even after you come out of the theatre – ‘Na zameen mili na phalak mila….’ by Sunidhi Chauhan. The cameraman deserves kudos for the beautiful cinematography. He is able to capture the majesty and the arid brutal surroundings of forbidding terrain. Director Sudipto Sen has scouted the unseen areas of Ladakh to create Afghanistan and Syria very skilfully.

The story moves back and forth between the brutal present and the enchanting past. There is no attempt to whitewash the truth or brush the story subtly to hype up the facts like the leftist filmmakers do. Dialogues are simple but effective. The story based on facts and evidence remains true to reality. I am not sharing the storyline of the film as I don’t want to play the spoiler. I can only say that it moves you immensely to see the plight of women who get ensnared into the extremist games and the condition of women in Jihadi-controlled Islamic societies. You feel choked.

Sterling performances of actors, none of whom are big names in Hindi cinema, led by charming Adah Sharma lift up the movie. Malayali-accent and the local Afghan accents are very well captured by the young performers. It is a sad reflection on the stranglehold of the established cinema mafia of Kerala and Mumbai that no established actor had the courage to take up the film despite the supposedly fascist Hindutva regime in Bharat for last nine years! However, the director is able to extract remarkable performances from the entire cast. Unknown faces make the film more realistic as you don’t get distracted by the aura of a star.

A special note of appreciation for the music directors Viresh Sreevalsa and Bishakh Jyoti, who have experimented with different genres of music very effectively. The background music enhances the storytelling. The songs fit in seamlessly and deepen the mood of the events.

The director Sudipto Sen is known more in the festival circuit for his award-winning films and short films. With this film, he has moved out of the festival circuit and jumped into the more forbidding commercial cinema where success is measured only through box office collections. The Kerala Story is a result of years of research. The makers produced a huge amount of written and video evidence to the censor board to convince them that they did not create fiction.

Vipul Amrutlal Shah, known for years for producing successful commercial Bollywood cinema has taken a leap of faith with this movie. He told me that after reading the screenplay for the first time, the only thing he asked Sudipto Sen was whether the story was true. Getting an affirmative answer, he embraced it fully. Perhaps, it was his first exposure to the harsh realities of our society that made him commit totally. He worked on the screenplay and dialogues himself. He has not spared any expense as can be seen from the quality of production. I am sure, many top stars of the industry who were just a phone call away from him will shun him now. And it is not easy to lose friends with whom you have worked for decades,  for standing up for truth. He has put his money where his mouth is. And he deserves full credit for converting years of hard research into a film that disturbs you, depresses you but also shakes you up to face the harsh realities of the world.

It is strange to hear the state’s current Marxist chief minister saying that The Kerala Story is RSS propaganda and has an ulterior agenda. He forgets that his own party’s former chief minister VS Achuthanandan had said in 2010 that organisations like PFI wanted to convert Kerala into a Muslim majority in another 20 years. The film shows a video clip of his statement.

When you come out of the movie, you don’t come out with hate for Muslims. You come out reflecting on the weakness of Hindu society and families who do not educate their children on the basic tenets of Hindu dharma. We leave them vulnerable and confused in a society where there are people whose only agenda is to convert the Kafirs and bring in the rule of Allah, whatever the cost. It is not the writer’s flight of imagination that the only girl in this film who resists and fights back the conversion is a Christian girl. It is not incidental. She understands her faith and also that of the persons trying to influence her. She pays a heavy price.

In the battle of civilisations, if you do not arm your children with the knowledge of the most global and humanist dharma, you will suffer the consequences. Our ancients have told us, “dharma rakshati rakshitah” – dharma protects those who protect dharma. Those who are protesting against the movie are afraid that we will see through the façade of ‘all religions are same’. The sweet poison fed to the Hindus that it is only their duty to be ‘liberal’ and ‘tolerant’ has been swallowed by unsuspecting Hindus and imbibed in their thinking where non knowing about one’s dharma is cool. Well, the things out there are hot and this is what the people resisting the movie don’t want us to know.

Go watch the movie, feel the heat and come back wiser.
