Hindu organisations Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal and Durgavahini women’s wing on Wednesday began a 15-day awareness programme in Mangalore against ‘Love Jihad’, the organisers said. They took out a rally from the Sri Laxmi Narayana Temple here to mark the start of the programme.

Love Jihad is a term used by sections of Hindu activists to describe marriages between Hindu women and Muslim men, who they claim seek to propagate Islam.

The organisers said workers of the three outfits would visit colleges, work places and homes in the district to distribute pamphlets to create awareness on “Love Jihad”.

Awareness programmes would be conducted in each ward, committees formed in parts of the coastal district and monthly meetings held to prevent young girls becoming ‘Love Jihad’ victims, they said.

VHP working president M B Puranik and Bajrang Dal convenor Sharan Pumpwell led the rally. The issue of religious conversions figured in the “Dharma Sansad”, a conclave of Hindu seers, mutt heads and VHP leaders on November 26 last year at Udupi.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat spoke about religious conversion and the need to reach out to those who are prone to it.

      Hope the National media, particularly English will equally highlights the lynching yesterday at Krishnapur near Suratkal of Deepak Rao (24) by Muslim elements, who attacked Police as well with sharp arms before their arrests.

        all this happening with support of congress, congresis just acting like agents of such anti hindu /anti national agenda. their aim is "HINDU MUKHT BHARAT" .congress knows conversions of hindus to muslim will increase their vote percentage.as their president rahul gandhi says hindus are more dangerous to the nation. "wake up hindus at least save and protect your self and save india from becoming another terrorist country like,Pakistan,Syria,Yemen Iraq and Somalia".

          Love Jihad isnt the right word, it should be eloping and marrying without parents consent, because these type of sham marriages generally manipulate a womans fundamental freedom, not just hindu girls, all girls shud be careful against new age romeo's who lie, deceive and womanize
