The CPI party activist PT Gilbert in Kerala alleged that his wife and son were forcibly converted to Islam and he filed a complaint against the forced conversion of his wife and son to Islam. A report by Janmabhumi states that Gilbert is a member of the CPM Nirolpal Branch Committee. He had alleged that Nazeera, a Panchayat member, and her husband Younus, an employee of Calicut University were the masterminds behind the alleged forced religious conversion. Gilbert said that he asked his party for help to save his wife and son from forced religious conversion. However, soon after this, Malappuram district committee issued a press release informing that he has been expelled from the party and his primary membership revoked for anti-party activities. He said he found his wife and son in the Islam religious place and he could not meet them. He also informed that his wife asked him regarding the ISIS repeatedly.
