Modus Operandi Rape Jihad India
 
Modus Operandi of a Rape Jihadist: A Police Filing

Criminals exist in every community, and it is not at all suggested that rapists only come from one community. However abduction and rape for the purposes of religious conversion is what makes rape jihad distinct.

Stories of exploitation and so-called love jihad have been in the news. The Supreme Court has taken cognizance of the matter and an NIA investigation has been ordered into coerced and systematic conversion into Islam. Criminals exist in every community, and it is not at all suggested that rapists only come from one community. However abduction and rape for the purposes of religious conversion is what makes rape jihad distinct. Such systematic religion–motivated abuse is now being recorded from Egypt to Pakistan.

IndiaFacts was approached by a reliable source who obtained a copy of an FIR relating to rape jihad through their lawyer. To remove any chance of identification or exposure of the victim, we have not only removed the victim’s names and personal details but also all place names and other details. We have also changed the name of the perpetrator, including his assumed name. Other than that the FIR is reproduced verbatim as it was received.

The FIR is newsworthy because it exposes what we believe is a fairly typical sequence in Rape Jihad. This is as follows:

  1. Victim is befriended. [Sometimes a (female) friend who is a collaborator or a (previously blackmailed) victim may be used for the introduction.]
  2. When there is trust, victim is convinced to come to a private place, usually by bunking school or some other instance where they would fear parental punishment.
  3. Perpetrator rapes victim using physical violence or threat of force.
  4. Pictures are taken to create shame.
  5. Victim is blackmailed using pictures and shame, leading to repeated rapes.
  6. At some point victim is told she must convert to Islam. [Here additional threats, acid throwing etc, were used.]
  7. Other friends or community members of the perpetrators are sometimes facilitators in this.
  8. Most often the victim succumbs. It is rarer for the victim to gather courage to tell her parents or the authorities.

The details of this particular case follow below.
