Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha is vexed again — this time over 2015 UPSC topper Tina Dabi’s announcement on Facebook about her decision to marry second topper and Kashmiri youth Athar Aamir-ul Shafi Khan. The right-wing outfit has termed the decision as ‘love jihad’ and has even offered help to Dabi family for Khan’s ‘re-conversion’ or ghar-wapasi.

In a letter addressed to Dabi’s father, outfit’s ‘s national secretary Munna Kumar Sharma has said that they should  reconsider their decision and refrain from promoting ‘love jihad’. The letter, which is published on Hindu Mahasabha’s official website, reads: “I would like to inform that foreign elements and Muslim extremists are working to promote ‘love jihad’ in the country on a big level. Through this, an effort is being made to Islamise the whole country.”

It went on to suggest that if the family wanted to go ahead with the marriage, they should persuade Khan to “re-convert” to Hindu religion. “Hindu Mahasabha will extend full support to the family in performing ghar-wapasi of Athar Khan,” it stated.

She has been responding to such criticisms on her Facebook page where her photographs with Khan are public.  In one of the posts, she said:  “As any freethinking independent woman I am entitled to certain choices. I am very happy with my choice and so is Aamir. Our parents are happy too. But there will always be those elements, that small minority who will always pass negative comments about dating someone from another religion. It is just that 5%. The majority are very happy . You would have seen in my Facebook timeline that most of the comments are encouraging.”

Tina Dabi is currently undergoing IAS training at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy for Administration in Mussoorie.

              "The majority are very happy" - in reality, she has been turned into a meme, of sorts on facebook

                  The Hindu Mahasabha is not doing itself any favors by reacting this way. Firstly, it is reacting rather hastily as there is no indication whether Ms. Dhabi will convert to Islam. When two people decide to get married no other person has the right to dictate their choice of religion and other personal issues post-marriage. I agree that Love Jihad is a very serious and real threat, but if some of our own people are unable to see it then nothing much can be done. The realisation that one of the reasons for decline of Hindu share and rise of Muslim share in our potion is due to post-marital conversion must come from within the person. It cannot be imposed by external parties and any attempt to do so will only result in anger against the external party.
