Mumbai girl harassed for conversion
4 May 2008, 0313 hrs IST,TNN

MUMBAI: A 21-year-old girl from Malwani who decided to convert to Islam has alleged to the State Minorities’ Commission that the local police gave her a tough time for her decision.

Sarah Sawant was so swayed by a conference addressed by hardliner Dr Zakir Naik in November last year that she decided to take up Islamic studies and become a cleric. Anticipating trouble from her parents after she decided to turn Muslim, Sawant on April 27 filed an application with the Malwani police, stating that there was no pressure on her from anyone—she was converting of her own accord and would live separately from her family.

“After I submitted my application, investigating officer Vikas Lokre told me it would take at least 10 days for it to come into force,” Sawant told TOI. “The next day, I had to go to the police station to get my statement recorded. When I went in the morning, I was asked to come back in the evening. After reaching the police station at 6 pm, I was asked to wait till 7.30 pm since Lokre had not arrived. During this time, I was made to sit on the floor of the ladies’ room like a criminal. A woman constable even said that if the formalities were going to take time, I would be locked up inside the ladies’ room for the night, since she had to leave for patrolling duty.”

Sawant said that after officers recorded her statement, they summoned her parents to the police station. “My family started verbally abusing and slapping me but the police did not do anything to stop them,” she said.

According to Sawant, the police kept insisting that she submit her present address in writing. “I had been receiving threat calls from my family. Even a male friend who helped me move into a new place was being harassed by my family members, one of whom is in the police force. I had given the police a Hyderabad address where I intended to study. But they found out that I hadn’t moved to Hyderabad yet and then started pressurising me to submit my Mumbai address,” she said.

When contacted, senior inspector Jaywant Hargude of the Malwani police station denied that Sawant had been harassed by the cops in any way. “Sawant’s parents had written to the crime branch, concerned about her safety.

We summoned them to the police station so that they could have a face-to-face discussion with their daughter and she could explain to them her decision of converting to another faith and moving out to a new place. She was not beaten inside the police station. In fact, our officers even escorted her till Malad in an auto afterwards. We were only asking her to submit her address, so that we would know where to contact her if any inquiries were to be made in future,” Hargude said.

Abraham Mathai, vice-chairman of the State Minorities Commission said, “The Indian Constitution gives every citizen the liberty to choose and profess any faith persuasion of his/her choice, once he/she is a major. Any interference would be an infringement of constitutional rights.” END.

    @prakash. May b u need to look at and and to rectify what u’ve said. Sarah is a courageous girl who was cofronted with the truth of Islam and accepted it. All the trash u ve mentioned in ur coment shows ur misinformation abt islam. What she accepted is Islam, not what individual muslims do. I hope that next time u back ur comment with proof

  3. Fareed said

    @Prakash. Islam doesn’t force to any body to accept it , even Muslims also …
    ISLAM means peace by submitting u r will to almighty GOD…

    Islam means brain-washing. It makes people feel superior about themselves, as if they are the ones following the “right” path and others are on the wrong path. It is as supremacist in terms of religion as Nazism was in terms of race. It’s game plan is to wipe out all other religions and to make everyone an unthinking Muslims. It has no place in the modern world or civilized society. It is sheer barbarism, Jahiliya. You will hear more of this as more people become aware of the true nature of Islam.

    Does Islam give the right for the muslims to convert to other religions?

    Does Islam give equal rights to its minorities in muslim countries?

    Dos Islam treat its women with dignity, equity and fairness?

    Is it not true that girls are sold in muta marriages to the visiting arabs in Hyderabad?

    Islam treats its minorities shabbily. Why the hindu India should treat the muslims differently?

    To : Thiangan,
    Your Comment : Does Islam give the right for the muslims to convert to other religions?
    Ans : Islam gives right to accept any religion.
    and Allah says in holy Quran islam is the only True religion & except islam will not be accepted by Allah on the day of judgemen.

    Your Comment : Does Islam give equal rights to its minorities in muslim countries?
    Ans : Islam not only gives equal rights to minorities but it gives equal rights to each & every human being, no colour no cast no rich no poor, but all are having equal rights (if you dont believe read quran with understanding)

    Your Comment : Dos Islam treat its women with dignity, equity and fairness?
    Ans : Islam is the only relgion which gives equal (balanced) rights to women
    (ie some aspect male are strong & some aspect women are strong, but overall both are equal)
    rest no religion except islam gives equal right to women, (if you dont believe read quran with understanding)

    Your Comment : Is it not true that girls are sold in muta marriages to the visiting arabs in Hyderabad?
    Ans : If you have any proof please provide that the girls are sold in muta marriage in hyderabad, inshallah I will reply on this point (I agree that there are good & bad people in every comunity, but because of those few people the whole people of that religion or the whole comunity is not bad or wrong)

    Your Comment : Islam treats its minorities shabbily. Why the hindu India should treat the muslims differently?
    Ans : Point no second covers reply for this point

    (Special Note : I have good knowledge of Islam, Hinduism, & Christinity but I have not gone in single point of others religion, Because my Holy Quran (word of Allah) says `Islam is the only True religion & except islam will not be accepted by Allah on the day of judgemen’ so there is no point to put finger on any religion

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 19:Indeed, Islam in the ONLY right Way of Life in the sight of Allah.

    Allah says in Chapter 30 Surah Rum aayat 31-32: “This (Islam) is the right and true faith, but most people do not know. (Be steadfast on this) turning wholly and sincerely towards Allah Alone, and fear Him, and establish the Salat, and do not be like the mushriks, who have set up their separate creeds and divided themselves into sects, each sect rejoicing in what it has.”

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 45 Surah Al-Jathiyah aayat 17: “Then they differed amongst themselves after the knowledge (of Islam) had come to them, only because they wanted to wrong one another. Your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning the matters in which they have been differing.”

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 77-78:O you who have believed, do ‘rukooh’ (bow down) and do ‘sajdah’ (prostration), and worship your Lord Allah Alone, and do righteous deeds: it may be that you attain true success! Exert your utmost for the cause of Allah, as one should. He has chosen you for His service, and has not laid on you any hardship in your religion. Therefore, be steadfast in the religion of your father Abraham. Allah had named you ‘muslims’ before this, and has named you (muslims) in this Quran also, so that the Messenger may be a witness in regard to you, and you may be witnesses in regard to the rest of mankind.

    Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumur verse 2-3:
    So worship Allah Alone, making your religion His exclusively. Beware! Religion is the exclusive Right of Allah. As for those who have taken other ‘auliyas’ (guardians) with Allah (and justify their this conduct by saying): “We serve them only that they may bring us closer to Allah.” Allah will surely judge between them concerning all that in which they differ. Allah does not show guidance to any liar and denier of the Truth.

    It is incorrect to say that Zakir naik’s influence lead the girl to convert to Islam . Rather , when she was presented with the correct teachings of Islam , she recognised that they alone are the truth ,and “reverted” to Islam .Isn’t it amazing that while Islam is the most maligned religion in the world , it is the fastest growing religion in number of converts .

    Mahamad was rebirth of the Tripurasur( a devil).
    * The followers of Mahamd’s created religion will be known as Musalmanah.
    * These Musalmans will pollute all other religions.
    * Theses Muslamans will eat every thing. Here it is not specified that they will not eat pork meat.

    Now, it is sure from Prof. Ved Prakash Upadhyay words that Mahamd which is mentined in Bhavishya Puran was a rebirth of a devil Tripurasur. But in your website you are giving wrong information about the meaning of slokas of Bhavishya Puran

    In Quaran it is said that Isha Mashih went to heaven but following historical evidences prove that that Isha Mashih came to Kashmir and he died at the age of 120:

    From the following evidences it is clear that the grave of Jesus christ is there in Kashmir:
    * The second century Church Father Irenaeus (who lived until about 180 C.E.) in his book `Against Heresies` has written that Jesus lived to be an old man upto times of the Emperor Trajan (98 AD), before finally dying in Asia.

    * The Acts of Thomas describes the stay of Jesus and Thomas in Taxila (now in Pakistan) at a marriage ceremony at the court of King Gundafor in the twenty sixth year of his rule (47 C.E.).

    * Bhavishya Maha Purana (volume nine verses 17-32) says that Jesus (Isha Masih) was in India/Kashmir during reign of King Shalivahan which has been placed within 39 to 50 C.E.

    * On this subject of life of Jesus Christ after crucifixion one may see books by Nicolas Notovitch (1894), Maury Lee (Jesus of India), Elizabeth Clare Prophet (Lost Years of Jesus), Paul C. Pappas (Jesus’ Tomb in India) and Mark Mason (In Search of the Loving God). Jesus Christ preached in Aramaic language.

    On the following official website you can get graphic details of grave of Yuz Asaf ( a name of Isha Mashih) in Srinagar (India) which points east-west keeping with Jewish custom.

    All the above information given above are authentic and are accepted international society of christiains and ahamadiya community of Muslimsas.

    So, on the basis of the all of the above evidences we are saying that Isha Mashih was burried in Kashmir. Therefore, whatever is written in the holy book Quaran about Isha Mashih is incorrect.

    It’s her choice and decision. Nobody should criticise her. SHE IS MATURE ENOUGH TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO IN LIFE . Myself i was hindu before and now i am a follower of witness of Jehovah. I see nothing wrong in it . Say whatever you want people.This remind me of the story of the man and the donkey, Whatever you do in life, there is always someone who is “for and against”, SO MY ADVICE IS LIVE AND LET LIVE. PEOPLE SHOULD MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS

    Neha and Shri (appears to be one and the same person),

    This blog deals with external aggression on India/Hindus. Both Christianity and Islam are intolerant semitic cults with the evil intent to subvert peaceful religions like Hinduism, Buddhism and others.

    You belonging to the wretched Jehovah’s cult which has malice towards on and all ,so will never achieve peace of mind in your life. You will always have hatred in your heart, scheming and manipulating Hindus and inducing in the new converts demonic frenzy, just as is happening to you. Jehovah’s Witness is a pathetic little cult since the mentally retarded converts believe they will be rewarded with heaven and the rest of the world are destined for hell. What a pathetic god, what a pathetic religion, what a pathetic situation you have fallen into…. From the vastness of Hinduism , you have landed yourself in the black hole of “my god is the only true god” bullshit, bearing hostility your own people, religion and culture.

    Spread your anti India/Hindu agenda elsewhere, will you. Spare us your satanic convulsions. We are already have enough muzzies doing that.

    1) Sati is a thing of the past. Can you give a year wise breakup of the number of reported Sati cases post independence ?
    2) Dalits are treated shabbily ? Yes, 50% reservations and growing. This nation will recompense them in every way possible for what they had to endure at the hands of some crazy casteist/supremesst.
    3) Coming to bride burning, can you pick it out from any of the Hindu scriptures? Its all about greed, and has little to do with any particular religion.

    As for the violent acts of Mohammadans is concerned, it shows no signs of waning, on the contrary, its very much on the rise. Do I need to list them ? Hell, no :)
    Aside, mind commenting on the state of minor girls in Hyderabad who are married off to sheikhs from the middle east and serve as sex slaves for 3 weeks ? The same acts aren’t condoned, but are encouraged by your so called leaders claiming it gives the impoverished families anywhere between 5,000 and 15,000 rupees to splurge. On what, may I ask ? A portable color TV ? Rations for a few months ? Stop bowing to your Arab masters and for once, say NO to this heinous flesh trade.
    There’s enough filth in our own homes, lets clean up our backyards first before storming into our neighbours homes armed with broomsticks.

    Lol… Guess she made the best choice of her life.
    Maybe for the first time in her life she used her Intellect. i dont think this girl was forced into accepting Islam… it was her choice.
    islam teaches not to force anyone to convert.
    Birth of every Major religion was to abolish Paganism … its quite absurd to think that i will worship a monkey or cow or snake…or shower up a God with jewellery and then drown it in the river …

    Plsease show facts and also try to find facts of how many have left islam after knowing the truth about the religion. Mohammed wanted to raise an army that does not question his authority and he created the monster call islam. No religion taht does not allow evolution with time will survive and islam has spread by the sword and wont be long before its followers start reconverting to their original ancestral faiths. The process has already started in Iran when many want to convert back to zorastroanism and the theocratic govt of iran is imposing death penalty on these people. Guess that shows the tolerance of islam while hindus and buddhists have allowed every other faith to thrive in their lands which wa stheir biggest fault.
