India: Muslim murders his Hindu girlfriend for refusing to convert to Islam and marry him

Muslim men are permitted to marry the “People of the Book” (although Muslim women may not marry men of the “People of the Book”), but Hindus are not “People of the Book.” Thus Chayanika Kumari had to convert to Islam if she was going to marry Mirza Rafiqul Haque. But she refused, and paid with her life. This is a manifestation of the culture of violence that mandates the beating of disobedient women (Qur’an 4:34).
One might wonder how sincere her conversion might have been, if she had only become a Muslim because Haque was pressuring her. After all, there is “no compulsion in religion” (Qur’an 2:256), right? But what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder. The institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion. Remember Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, the journalists who were kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam — even though their conversions were obviously coerced, their captors made them say that they were converting freely, and the captors probably believed that themselves. After all, the journos could have chosen to be killed instead.
“Woman Murdered by Boyfriend for Refusing to Convert to Islam and Marry,” Hindu Post, November 8, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Chayanika Kumari (30) was strangled to death by her alleged boyfriend Mirza Rafiqul Haque, a doctor by profession, for refusing to convert to Islam and marry him. After murdering Chayanika, Haque stuffed her body into a suitcase which he left at the Tata Nagar railway station, Jamshedpur, Jharkhand.
Chayanika, a resident of Jharkhand’s Jamshedpur, was working as an operation head in the city-based Meditrina Hospital. Dr. Mirza Haque was working as an RMO at the BM Birla Hospital in Kolkata.
According to the Jamshedpur police, Haque killed 30-year-old Chayanika after she refused to marry him despite their three-year-long relationship. The accused had already decided that if Chayanika won’t get ready to marry him, he would kill her….
According to Jamshedpur SSP Anoop T Mathew, Haque got angry after getting this response from Chayanika and strangulated her to death. After that, he packed her body in the suitcase and dumped it near Tata Nagar railway station.
Chayanika’s father Arun Kumar said that Haque was pressurizing his daughter to convert and marry him.
