Many well-funded websites have come up celebrating Muslim men-Hindu women relationships. None talks about those that ended up in murders of women

Here’s a thread on some of my own ground reports:
- Nikita Tomar refused nikah proposal by her former schoolmate Tausif. He even kidnapped her once so she becomes unmarriageable. Eventually, he shot her dead

Nikita’s father calls her a veerangana who died in protest of forcible religious conversion…
- Naina (name changed), an SC girl, had throat slit by a local tailor named Mohd Dilshad. He told police she didn’t accept his offer of elopement. Family says he never met them with a marriage offer…
- Ekta Jaswal from Ludhiana eloped with Mohd Saqib of Uttar Pradesh. Murdered within two weeks. Her parents learnt about it only a year later…
-Naina Kaur was all set to marry a man from her own Sikh community. Sher Khan stabbed her to death two days before the wedding in a one-sided affair…
-Shamshad entered into a relationship with Priya, who was divorced and has a minor daughter. They started living together. For reasons not clear, he killed both of them and buried them in his own house. Bodies recovered only 6 months later.…

How many of you can tell their names without reading the report?…
“This whole case has been about Munawar Faruqui, and now that he has been released, no one really cares who is left behind. I just want my brother to come back home,” said Nalin Yadav’s younger brother, Akash, a Class XII commerce student”
I wrote about it last week

Amid important statement by law minister that Dalits converting to Islam or Christianity are not entitled to SC quota, sharing five case studies by me where Dalit women and men availed of quota benefits despite conversion. Some of these cases saw action, but interesting stories:
Kavita, born Jaatav, became Ashiya after marriage to Moazzam. She fought and won zila panchayat poll on reserved seat. When a Dalit outfit took her to court, she first said she isn’t married to Moazzam, but caught up with her. She was sacked…

Something you should know: The police, most of the time, go with the accused's statement/confession to give motive of the crime. To the media and in the chargesheet. It's easier to them.
Easier for them*
I recall a Faridabad case where a man, Sanjay, was killed by family of the Muslim woman he had eloped with. The accused told the media that they killed Sanjay because he had left the woman. Everybody in colony and Sanjay's family called it a lie. But then, what can one do

Read this horrific case from Ghaziabad published on TOI’s front page today

Woman named Uma and her boyfriend Sonu Ali killed a woman Dolly and slit throats of her two kids, Rudra and Gauri

Minutes later, I got to know that the victim family is close friend of a friend
The killer, Sonu Ali, used to be called "tailor uncle" by the children. The monster also shot dead a 17-year-old neighbouring girl who was helping the children with studies at that time.
Just hear this woman, Uma, who is narrating so calmly to the media how the children used to call her Amma and how her boyfriend Sonu Ali killed or attacked them all while she stood gaurd.

What happens when a middle-class family gets police security after a crime? Tragi-comedy

Met a man yesterday who’s got two cops to guard his house 24/7 after a murder of a family member +
The cops don’t let him use his bike as they must accompany him. Every time he has to go to market or bank, he borrows the neighbour’s car so the cops can sit and go with him +
He can walk to short distances, but sight of two cops with big rifles attracts a lot of attention and embarrasses him. So he or any member of the family doesn’t step out on foot at all. Been months +
