wa alaykum as salaam 

 

I think the more worrying trend is the amount of Muslims unaware of their own religion. Are we really surprised that more Muslims are straying from the religion when Islam is not properly taught and sometimes not taught in the education system at all. 

 

The fact that money is paid to those who convert in the mentioned article above though is something that obviously must be taken into account. Of course the BJP also is widely involved in the spread of misinformation about Islam. This is exactly why we need more education amongst Muslims to be able to deal with such misinformation. Level of income have been shown to effect education levels all over the world. So in this sense I am not surprised that in a country where education of Islam is lacking and the general population are not on a good income, that we see such news.

Nearly a dozen Indian Muslim families have fled their homes in Agra after 57 families were reportedly converted to Hinduism against their will.

One slum resident, Salina, said she had no idea that it was a conversion ceremony. "During the ritual, suddenly we were made to do what the [Hindu] priest was doing. One Muslim man was even made to hold an idol in his hand.

"After the ritual was over, the local activist told us that we had all become Hindus. We wanted to protest, but we were advised to keep quiet as we were told we would get a ration card and other amenities."

Another resident Mumtaz, however, said that no-one had forced her to attend the ritual and that all those who attended had done so voluntarily.

Ramzan Sheikh, a witness to the ritual, said there was a lot of fear in the area. "We are scared. Whatever happened, we never expected," he said.

You are correct Paradise, lack of awareness .but the main cause is

Poverty

I want to make one correction; it is not that Islam  is not properly thought rather it is

"Islam is never thought"

This is mainly due to lack of cooperation in our brethrens and you know this

is a global problem of Muslims

Whatever happening is the effect and the main cause is the hatred among us

 

For example, In Chennai, people like Dr.Zakir Naik is not allowed to make public

meetings by few Muslim originations .note that, Muslims are against Muslims

.then how you expect there will any kind of Islamic knowledge imparted  to the ordinary laymen
