Land Jihad: The new threat in Kerala when Hindus sliding to a Minority
Of late, Kerala has been suffering from a new syndrome, the Land Jihad! Known as ‘Gods own Country’, Kerala s always been a victim of cultural and religious invasions. The state which is already suffering from forcible conversions, love jihad, violence, increased teenage crimes, murders, communal violence, corruption, is a shelter and training center for terror activities well. LAND JIHAD is the latest addition to the long and seemingly endless list.
Land Jihad is a kind of systematic attempt by Muslim Land Mafia, to own a land at any price through a purely legal procedure. The land meant for sale will be purchased by Muslim land owners at the market price or a price even higher than that. As a result across Kerala, in the last 10 years, a large portion of lands now has Muslim ownership. Nobody can go to court as nothing is illegal and nothing is hidden.
“This phenomenon was expected as Muslims in Kerala want to widen their base when the Hindu population is declining to a minority,” say intellectuals.
Kerala’s principal religions are Hinduism (56.2%), Islam (24.7%), and Christianity (19.0%). In comparison with the rest of India, Kerala experiences relatively little sectarianism.
The phenomenon of Land Jihad began from Muslim dominant Malappuram district. It has then progressively migrated across Kerala. Kasaragod is the most affected part where largest agricultural lands of areca palms, rice paddy were long ago sold to Muslims by Hindus, with Muslim land dealers offering a huge price than the market value. They purchase land in terms of acres paying crores. “To purchase such fertile land a huge amount of money is flown from Gulf countries,” according to experts.
The state has an area of 38,863 km2 (15,005 sq mi) and is bordered by Karnataka to the north and northeast, Tamil Nadu to the east and south, and the Arabian Sea on the west. Thiruvananthapuram is the state capital. Kochi and Kozhikode are other major cities. According to a survey by The Economic Times, five out of ten best cities to live in India are located in Kerala. Kerala is a popular destination for itsbackwaters, beaches, Ayurvedic tourism and tropical greenery

As soon as the British took over Eastern India, tribal revolts broke out to challenge alien rule. In the early years of colonization, no other community in India offered such heroic resistance to British rule or faced such tragic consequences as did the numerous Adivasi communities of now Jharkhand, Chhatisgarh, Orissa and Bengal. As punishment for Adivasi resistance to British rule, 'The Criminal Tribes Act' was passed by the British Government in 1871 arbitrarily stigmatizing groups such as the Adivasis (who were perceived as most hostile to British interests) as congenital criminals.
