A day after Kerala government informed Supreme Court that a probe by National Investigation Agency (NIA) is not needed in Hadiya case, Bindu, the mother of a woman who converted and left the country to join ISIS has submitted a petition to become a party in the case. She has appealed to the Supreme Court that a national intelligence agency should probe into the conversions in Kerala.
Bindu has requested the court to order an investigation by NIA and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). She also alleges that the jihadi's and Islamic State has made Kerala their base. Most conversions taking place in Kerala have similar characters, and they are forceful ones, she says in the petition.
Bindu's daughter Nimisha, who converted to Islam, got married to another convert from Palakkad, and went missing is suspected to have gone to Afghanistan to join the ISIS. She was eight months pregnant at the time she went missing and is reportedly living in a remote area in Afghanistan.
Nimisha's mother had earlier approached High Court seeking help to bring her daughter back stating that Nimisha had contacted her and wanted to return home. There were reports that her husband was killed in a shell attack.
Three advocates from Kerala High Court are also planning to move Supreme Court seeking NIA probe in the conversion cases in Kerala.
