Booklet, pamphlet on 'love jihad' distributed at Hindu spiritual fair in Rajasthan

Postado Novembro 19, 2017

The event was organised by Hindu Spiritual and Service Foundation (HSSF) and was attended by two lakh school and college students.

In January 2015, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) had used the same image of the actress on the cover of its magazine Himalay Dhwani in context of love jihad.

Amid claims that the material was handed out at a stall of Bajrang Dal, its coordinator Ashok Singh said it was not distributed from their stall.

Another pamphlet being circulated in the fair speaks about the alleged rate list for getting a mon-Muslim girl convert and marry a Muslim.

"On reports of such material, I have asked the additional DCP to probe the matter to ascertain who distributed these things in the fair", he told PTI.

The state government's district education department has made it mandatory for its students to attend the fair.

One of them, a manual being sold by VHP for Rs 5 each, advises the use of words like "terrorists", "antinationals", "pro-Pakistanis", "womanisers", and "smugglers" to describe Muslims to women in a Hindu household, a Times of India report said.

The event also focussed on enlightening students on the concept of 'love jihad, ' as reported by The Wire.

Jaipur:A Bajrang Dal stall removed a booklet on "love jihad" from its shelves on Sunday, a day after selling the manual ' containing hate content against Muslims at a Hindu outfit's fair in Jaipur.Stall managers denied having kept or sold any literature on love jihad, a conspiracy theory that Muslims woo Hindu girls to convert them to Islam."We never sold any literature on love jihad". One of them is: "Check your daughter's mobile phone, who does she call, whose numbers are saved in the mobile, what and who do they text, checking all this will give you a lot of information", the report said. The pamphlet goes on to say that actors like Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan marry Hindu girls, ensnare them and then desert them.

A Bharatiya Hindu Sena stall asks fair attendees to commit to make India "an entirely Hindu nation" and to "construct a magnificent temple of Lord Ram in Ayodhya", while the stall of Baba Jaigurudev Dharm Vikas Sansthan, helps people take a pledge for vegetarianism, the Indian Express report said.
