Mumbai police memo riles Muslim group

Mumbai, Apr 1 : A leaked memo by the Mumbai Police has said that a Muslim organisation which runs educational institutions is covertly trying to enroll women students as jihadis.

According to media reports, the memo, issued last month, asks the cops to"keep a close watch" on the Girls Islamic Organisation of India.

It said that though the organisation's "averred objective is to make more Muslim girls aware of their religion and the holy Quran, its main objective is to indoctrinate school and college girls and train them for jihad."

An unit under the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, the Girls Islamic Organisation provides educational and social services for Muslim women.

Calling the circular a conspiracy to malign Islam and Muslims, the Jamaat has demanded an apology from the police.

Police officials were reported as saying that the note, based on intelligence alert, was meant for internal use and was leaked to local media.
