published on August 23, 2014

Yet another case of Love Jihad has surfaced, this time from Ranchi, capital of Jharkhand. The victim is no ordinary woman- she is a shooter of international fame Tara Shahdev. According to the victim, she tied the knot on 7 July to a man who posed to be Hindu. Following tortures meted out to her, it came to light that he was a Muslim masquerading as Hindu, a man named Raqeebul Hassan.
 
Tara’s wedding ceremony took place in Hotel Radisson Blue of Ranchi, according to Hindu customs. Her husband Ranjith Singh claimed to be the owner of a small time business firm. But soon after, the strange behavior of her husband Ranjith Singh aroused her curiosity. In a month’s time the most inhuman tortures were inflicted on her, because of which she found it difficult to walk. All these led to a shocking discovery that Ranjith Singh was no Hindu, but a Muslim. According to reports, Raqeebul Hassan is said to have tortured her, to get her converted to Islam. Jharkhand police have registered a case regarding the matter.
 
Tara also alleges that Raqeebul Hasan would force her into physical relationship, at gun point. He even went to the extent of spreading slander about Tara, an aspiring shooter whose sole aim was to bring laurels to her nation.
 
“I realized that he was a Muslim, when we got an invitation for an Iftar party from a Muslim minister of Jharkhand Haji Hussain Ansari. The name of the addressee was Raqeebul Hassan Khan. I was shocked. That is when the entire wall of lies collapsed,” alleged Tara.
 
Matters took a turn for the worst when her husband, on 9 July came home with 20- 25 Muslim clerics and forced her to undergo religious conversion. “I flatly refused. But all my protests fell on deaf ears. I was physically battered and made to be bitten by a dog too. All this was done to induce fear in me, so that I would convert to Islam. They also threatened that they would kill my brother, if I revealed truth to anyone,” said Tara.
 
Following the tortures, Tara is said to have gone to her parents house in Kishoreganj district. “On a piece of paper I wrote down all that was happening to me and left it in a cupboard, where I hoped it would be seen by some one and help would come my way,” she said.
 
On 17 August, Tara managed to take hold of a mobile phone belonging to a male helping hand and called her brother. “I asked my brother to come here along with the police. I was apprehensive of Raqeebul falsely implicating my brother in some case. He is a man well versed in politics and matters of law,” she added.
 
According to Tara, her first meeting with Raqeebul Khan took place at Hotwar Stadiium, a place she used to frequent for her shooting practices. “He declared his live for me in front of everyone and proposed thereafter. Following this, he invited me for dinner to his home on 14 June. Exactly a day after, on 15 June Tara went to a friend’s house for dinner. But as she stepped in, she stood face to face with Raqeebul, who was already present there. “He put the ring on my finger and gifted me with a gold bangle. He was impatient to get a date for the wedding chalked out. The engagement was conducted on 20 June and the wedding ceremony, on 7 July,” poured out Tara, adding that she least expected a nightmare to follow soon after.
