After the namaz row, Lulu mall faces allegations of promoting grooming jihad. The mall management has been accused of deliberately employing 70-80% Muslim youths and just 20% Hindu girls. Lulu International is headquartered in Abu Dhabi and was founded by Kerala-born MA Yusuff Ali. The first mall in India was opened in Kerala’s Kochi.
According to a Zee News report:
A letter has come out from the Regional Director of Lulu India Shopping Mall Pvt. ‘Consumer is paramount for us. Our establishment does business within limits prescribed under the rules of the government. Whatever workers we have here, they are not kept in the name of caste, creed, religion, but based on their efficiency’…
…On the other hand, taking action in this matter, Lucknow CP DK Thakur has removed the local SHO of Golf City, Ajay Pratap Singh, from the charge. They have been sent to the police lines. Shailendra Giri has been made the new SHO. Apart from this, DCP South Zone Gopal Chaudhary has also been transferred.
The liberal brigade rushed to Lulu’s defense and attempted to force-fit a Hindutva angle. Earlier, Congress leaders, Islamists, and propagandists used the Hindu men’s arrest for reciting Sundar Kand outside the Lulu Mall to spread fake news that the police took them under custody for posing as Muslims and offering namaz inside the mall premises.
“The Lucknow police have arrested four persons for performing namaz at the newly opened Lulu mall in the state capital. Mohammad Rehan, Aatif Khan, Mohammad Lokman, and Mohammad Noman have been identified as the accused. They are all residents of the Indiranagar police station area in Lucknow”, reported OpIndia.
The grooming allegations cannot be overlooked. Recently, PFI (Popular Front of India) released an ‘India Vision 2047’ document, which says it intends to conquer and subjugate ‘coward’ Hindus with the help of Islamic nations.
A comprehensive India Narrative article, ‘PFI’s vicious circle of friends from Turkey and Pakistan to Al-Qaeda and ISIS’ says, “In 2017, India Today conducted a sting operation wherein PFI’s founding member and managing editor of its mouthpiece–Gulf Thejas, Ahmed Shareef confessed to PFI’s hidden agenda of converting India into an Islamic state. To that end, it is working on mass proselytizing and receiving illegal funds through mainstream and hawala channels”.
“The PFI should be banned comprehensively. Its offices, bank accounts, and related establishments should be sealed. Its leadership, prominent members, and violent mongers should be arrested. Finally, it should be declared as a terror organization with an UN-designated worldwide ban”, a Central government official said.
Despite the management denying accusations, there is reason to be apprehensive. Grooming is emerging as a serious issue across the country. The liberals providing cover fire only adds to the suspicion. Only a thorough investigation would bring forth the facts.
