After Kashmir FIles Upcoming Film 'The Kerala Story' Sparks Debate on Love Jihad and Terrorism in India
The controversial issue of "love jihad" has been a hot topic in India in recent years, with many claiming that it is a practice that is destroying the lives of young girls. The issue has been fueled even more with the upcoming film, "The Kerala Story," which depicts the story of love jihad in an unfiltered way.
The film, which is set to release on May 5, 2023, has caused a stir on social media since its trailer was released. Some have called it a propaganda film, while others have criticized the figures presented in the movie as completely false.
Actress Adah Sharma plays the role of a Hindu Malayali nurse who suddenly disappears from Kerala and is forcefully converted to another religion, where she is forced to join the terrorist organization ISIS. The film shows the harsh reality of how regular college girls are made a part of a terrorist organization like ISIS.

However, the director of the film, Sudipto Sen, has been critical of the criticism that the trailer has received. He has insisted that people should watch the movie first before commenting on it. He also suggested that people should not focus on the figure of 32,000 but should instead focus on the families of the girls who went missing and committed suicide. There were also gang rape cases depicted in the film.

The film's controversial subject matter has once again brought to the forefront the issue of love jihad, which has been a topic of heated debate in India for several years. The term "love jihad" refers to the alleged practice of Muslim men marrying non-Muslim women and then converting them to Islam.
Many people believe that the practice is an attempt to change the demographic balance of the country and to spread radical Islam. However, others argue that it is merely a way for two people of different religions to fall in love and get married.

Whatever the case may be, "The Kerala Story" has brought the issue to the forefront once again, and it will be interesting to see how the film is received by audiences. With the film's release still a few months away, it remains to be seen whether it will spark a new wave of controversy or provide a new perspective on the issue of love jihad
