Kerala Caught in the Vice Grip of Orphanage Mafia- All with the Blessings of Muslim League  

published on September 17, 2014

Kerala is in the vice grip of an orphanage mafia- a mafia widely indulgent in activities of financial fraudulence, which stands to endanger national security as well. The orphanage mafia receives grants and secure stand to function unbridled via Ministry of social justice. The clamour for central government to take action against these state government sponsored mafias is now escalating.
The orphanage mafia in Kerala functions with the blessings of Muslim League. Their aim is to bring in foreign money via an unhindered track and thereby indulge in activities of treason, including wide spread religious conversion. Apart from these, the orphanages are a cover to make unwanted use of government grant

The local Funds Audit has come upon mass swindling indulged in by orphanages in Mukkom (Kozhikode), Mannasseri etc, which have been bringing in children from other states without proper documents. These orphanages, which are around 25 in number, are said to have swindled money in lakhs, all in the name of grants. Following this, the government sought details of Social Justice Forum officers functioning at district levels, who made recommendations for these orphanages along with orphanage owners have been sought. They have been subject to interrogations. However, the SJC Director failed in submitting the final report to the government. It has also been alleged that the statement of these officers have not been recorded either.

Leaders of Muslim League are said to stand in the forefront of these mass scale fraudulence, where government money is being swindled by owners of orphanages who happen to be party bigwigs themselves. They are said to conduct these operations with the aid of ‘benamis’ or relatives. Also, with Ministry of Social Justice coming under Muslim League, every act of deceit goes unquestioned, with the orphanage mafia flourishing unhindered with ample help from party heads.

Grants are given on the basis of the number of children present in orphanages, along with their needs. A report based on this is submitted to the district SJC officer. Availing the grant is easy, for the report contains statements like “orphanages suffering endlessly if no grant is provided, with children likely to die of starvation.” These activities are seeing an alarming rise, especially in Northern Kerala. 

Reports also state that officers who join SJC on a temporary basis also serve as links in connecting orphanage mafias, in helping them extract money from both abroad and state government channels. This has come to light following the episode of child trafficking, where children from Jharkhand were illegally brought into Kerala. The Orphanage Control Board, which comes under SJC is also said to be in league with these activities.

Orphanage control board is also headed by a Muslim league nominee as secretary. Although he is retired from Govt. service he is appointed under contract now. He was appointed on a 2 year term. However, all proceedings are being initiated to get his term extended.
