India: Another similar murder, Muslim man kills Hindu wife, cuts her body into pieces and throws them away
The murder of Shraddha Walkar in New Delhi in India, who was killed and chopped into 35 pieces by her live-in partner Aaftab Ameen Poonawala in May 2022, but the fact revealed only in November 2022, is considered to be one of the most brutal murder cases of recent times. Within a few days of that, another gory murder incident came to light from Bihar State of India. Here, a man identified as Sheikh Shakeel or Shakeel Miyan in news reports, chopped the limbs and other body parts of a woman named Neelam Devi, leading to her brutal death. He penetrated the deadly weapon into her eyes too as per eyewitnesses.
Now, within a few days of that, in December 2022 another Shraddha-like murder has been reported from Jharkhand State of India, where a tribal Hindu woman who eloped and married a man from the Muslim community has been found killed and chopped into more than a dozen pieces.
The woman married the man in August, and became his second wife. Besides her husband, several members of her in-law family including her husband’s first wife have been arrested for the crime.
On Saturday evening, locals in Santhali Momin Tola area of Sahebganj district in Jharkhand, which falls under Borio Police Station, reportedly discovered pieces of a body strewn around.
They informed the police, who began investigation in the case.
The mutilated body was identified as that of Rabita Pahadin, who had reportedly married Mohammed Dildar Ansari in August and had only recently moved to the area to live with her in-laws.
The police arrested Dildar Ansari as a key suspect. Later, they arrested six more members of his family including his parents Mustakim and Mariyam, Dildar’s first wife Gulera, Dildar’s siblings Ameer, Mehtab and Shareja.
Involvement of an eighth person — Dildar’s maternal uncle Mominul Haq, is also suspected.
News agency ANI quoted Sahebganj superitendent of police (SP) as saying, “12 parts of the body of a 22-yr-old woman belonging to primitive tribal community found in Sahibganj. Some parts of body still missing & search for them is underway. Her husband Dildar Ansari has been detained by Police, the deceased was his second wife.”
The agency also quoted Santhal DIG Sudarshan Prasad Mandal as saying that the woman was second wife of Dildar, which was a cause for dispute in the family.
He said the woman’s body was chopped in 18 pieces. Some reports, however, say the body’s was chopped into 50 pieces and only a dozen pieces have been found so far.
The body was chopped allegedly by an electric cutter.
The Aaftab-Shraddha Case
On 11 November, the Delhi Police arrested Aaftab Ameen Poonawalla, 27, for murdering his live-in partner Shraddha, 26.
, Aaftab killed Shraddha on 18 May by strangling her, in Mehrauli area of the capital city.
To dispose of the body, he bought a large refrigerator, chopped Shraddha’s body into 35 pieces and stored them in plastic bags. Over the next two weeks, he threw away the pieces in the nearby jungle in the nights.
The murder came to light when Shraddha’s father Vikas Madan Walkar learnt from one of her friends that she had been unreachable over phone for several weeks, and filed a missing person complaint in Vasai (West) Police Station of Palghar district in Maharashtra.
Both Aaftab and Shraddha lived in Vasai with their families when they came in contact with each other.
They first moved in together in Vasai, much to the disapproval of her family that objected to Aaftab’s Muslim identity, before shifting to New Delhi a month before Shraddha’s murder.
This case is yet another addition to a series of cases where Muslim men trap non-Muslim women in relationships for purposes of conversion or sexual exploitation, often murdering them if they resist.
There are numerous such cases of killings of Hindus by Muslims in India, and as compared to that, the number of cases of killings of Muslims in retaliation or in similar inter-religious affairs are very lesser in number. In India, as per the 2011 census, the Hindus are 79.8% while Muslims are 14.23%. But the actual violent behavior, killings, attempted murders and forcible conversions by Muslims are far more. There are almost zero, if not completely zero, cases of Muslims being forced to convert to Hinduism, and very few cases of attacks on them, as compared to attacks by them on others. But this doesn’t suit the narrative of Leftists and Islamists, who want to paint Muslims as victims.
The claim that ‘Love Jihad’ is merely a ‘conspiracy theory’ is another lie. It is a brutal fact, seen from the numerous cases of conversions, attempted conversions, and a pattern of using fake identities to deceive non-Muslim women, including Christian women in the state of Kerala [in which Christians are more than 18% of the population]. Islamists and Leftists have tried to suppress the killings of Hindu men by radical Muslims for having affairs with Muslim women, e.g. Ankit Saxena, Dablu Singh, Rahul Rajput in the national capital of India itself, and numerous others in various other places. As just one example, Sanjay Kumar, a Hindu was tortured, mutilated and brutally killed by Muslims in Haryana state of India in August 2018, for having a Muslim wife, and not converting to Islam.
There is a compilation of around 130 cases of rape, murder, attempted murder, conversion or attempted conversion of Hindu women by Muslims in India, mostly post-2014 when the supposed right-wing Hindu nationalist BJP came to power at the Centre in India. This can be read here https://www.mediafire.com/file/nlwil11i02mctwn/Murder_or_r%2Ap%2A_or_conversion_or_attempted_conversion_of_Hindu_women_by_Muslims_in_India.pdf/file or here
There have been many brutal cases in the past. In 2018, a Muslim in India’s financial capital Mumbai held a 27-year old Hindu girl captive & sexually assaulted her for 2 and half months, also tonsured her head, threatened to kill her, after she refused to convert to Islam & marry him. He showed her videos of evangelist Zakir Naik. He showed her mobile phone videos of him sexually assaulting her and started to blackmail her. Initially, he kept her confined to his home during which he repeatedly raped her and also beat her with leather belt. He took away her debit card and withdrew Rs. 40,000 from her account. This happened in India, not in Pakistan.
Can anyone imagine Hindu men doing this to Muslim women, trying to force them to convert to Hinduism, in Pakistan, or for that matter, even in India? There was absolutely no reprisal on a single Muslim in India after this incident. Since the religions of the rapist and victim were inconvenient, the media almost totally suppressed this case.
In October 2020, a 21-year old Hindu girl Nikita Tomar was shot dead in broad daylight on CCTV camera in the state of Haryana by Muslims for refusing to convert to Islam and marry her stalker. Her killers got life imprisonment, which is only a 14-year jail term. There was absolutely no reprisal. An identical incident similar to the Nikita Tomar case happened in the same state of Haryana in December 2021 again in which the girl miraculously survived-till now.
There is a pattern of Muslim men using fake Hindu names to befriend Hindu girls in India, and after marriage revealing their true name and religion and forcing the girl to convert to Islam. Many such cases have been documented, with the pattern being clearly evident, by courageous journalists of a magazine Swarajya. The cases can be seen here. There was a high-profile case involving a national level woman shooter of India, named Tara Sahdeo, whose partner introduced himself as Ranjit Kumar Kohli, but after marriage revealed himself to be Raqibul Hasan Khan and tried to force her to convert to Islam. This was attempted in case of an individual with such a national level status.
