Muslim 'rapes co-worker for 5 days to make her convert'
In a horrific case of misplaced courtship, a 30-year-old Muslim systems engineer was arrested in India and charged with kidnapping and rape after he abducted a former colleague and held her for five days to force her to convert to Islam and marry him.
The 27-year-old woman, who has not been named, rejected Syed Emad Hasan’s offer of matrimony after she explained her family does not allow inter-religious marriage. The woman moved from Hyderabad, India, to Dubai to escape Hasan’s attention, but he continued to harass her until she came back to Hyderabad to confront him.
The two had been colleagues working at a Dell computer-repair shop in Gachibowli, Hyderabad. According to the Indian Express, “Hasan, from Aligarh, did his BTech from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, and started working at an MNC. In June, the woman, who had completed a chartered accountancy course, joined the company as an intern. They became friends, and Hasan soon proposed to her, the police said. The woman refused.”
