Kottayam: It is alarming that girls are lured in using the 'weapon of love' and forcefully converted to another religion, Nair Service Society said in a statetment.

Pala Bishop Joseph Kallarangatt had earlier alleged that Love Jihad and Narcotic Jihad exist in Kerala.

It is a terrorist act. The State and Union governments are responsible to act on it. However, it is not fair to attribute it to any particular religion, the NSS statement reads.

The people and community organisations must stay cautious to keep such forces away, NSS said.

As part of the 'love jihad', non-Muslim girls, especially those belonging to the Christian community, were largely being converted after trapping them in love and being exploited and misused for destructive activities like terrorism, the Bishop belonging to the Syro Malabar Church, had alleged. He was addressing devotees during a church celebration at Kuruvilangad in Kottayam.

Congress and CPM criticised the statement of the Bishop while BJP came out in support of him.
