Muslim outfits in Kerala on Monday  said the 'love jihad', where girls from other religious background are allegedly lured to marriage and  converted to Islam, is a "malicious-and misinformation campaign" by Sangh Parivar outfits. 

The term 'love jihad' is a misconceived notion "raked up" by Sangh Parivar outfits and reference of such a term by Constitutional establishments like the judiciary "is not a good sign", a joint statement by various prominent Muslim leaders said in Kozhikode.

"The misinformation campaign against the non-existent organisation in the name of 'Love Jihad' would only lead to vitiating the prevailing communal harmony and create uspicion among various communities and the parties concerned should keep themselves away from levelling unsubstantiated charges," the statement said. 

The Kerala and Karnataka High Courts had recently directed the police to investigate allegations of 'Love Jihad'. 

The signatories to the statement include State Muslim League president Syed Hyderali Shihab Thangal, general secretary of All India Jem-uth-Ulema A P Abubacker Musliyar, and chairman of Peoples Democratic Party Abdul Naser Madhani.
