Madhya Pradesh: Police Begin Probe Against Anju’s Family After Protest By Hindu Outfit


Gwalior: Gwalior police in Madhya Pradesh have begun a probe against the family of Anju, mother of two who went to Pakistan, converted to Islam and married her social media friend Nasrullah.

On Thursday, some members of the Hindu Mahasabha gheraoed the SP office and demanded a probe against Anju’s family. They alleged that the family is receiving foreign funding and is engaged in activities with missionaries.

Gwalior SP Rajesh Chandel confirmed that the Hindu outfit has submitted a memorandum in this regard and the police have launched a probe.

Anju’s father Gaya Prasad Thomas lives in Bona village of Tekanpur town under Antri police station area of the Gwalior district. He converted to Christianity several years ago and was upset when media persons asked him about the conversion soon after Anju’s matter came to light.

‘There should be a probe into family's conversion’

Hindu Mahasabha national vice president Jaiveer Bhardwaj said that there should be a probe into the circumstances leading to the conversion of the family which migrated from Bhind several years ago.

Notably, Anju (34), a mother of two children and resident of Alwar, Rajasthan reached Pakistan on July 21 to meet Nasrullah (29), whom she had befriended on Facebook.

Anju converted to Islam and married Nasrullah

After the news went viral and people back home started drawing comparisons between Anju and Seema Haider, she issued a video statement saying that she has come to Pakistan legally and will return within two to three days.

But on Tuesday, she converted to Islam and married Nasrullah in a local court of a district and sessions judge. Anju changed her name to Fatima.

When asked about his daughter’s marriage, Gaya Prasad said, “I have no idea what is going on in her mind. That girl, who left her house, is dead for us. She didn’t even think about her children or husband.” He also claimed that his daughter is mentally ill.
