Another idea from Hindutva lab: ‘bahu lao-beti bachao’

Bajrang Dal will launch the campaign from February 17 in Uttar Pradesh.

After “love jihad” and “ghar wapsi”, now its “bahu lao-beti bachao” campaign. Notwithstanding the controversy generated over the first two, Bajrang Dal, the youth wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, has announced the launch of “bahu lao-beti bachao” campaign.

Under it, they will “protect Hindu boys who marry Muslim or Christian girls” and will also create awareness among Hindu families “to protect their girls from falling in love or getting married to Muslim or Christian boys”.

Bajrang Dal will launch the campaign from February 17 in Uttar Pradesh. Its office bearers here have already discussed the campaign at the “Hindu Sammelan” that the VHP recently organised across the country to mark its golden jubilee. VHP is an offshoot of Rashrtiya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Bajrang Dal state convenor Ajju Chauhan told The Indian Express that the “bahu lao-beti bachao” campaign will be a reply to “love jihad” and will seek to bring girls from Muslim or Christian communities as daughters-in-laws for Hindu families.

“In ‘love jihad’, Muslim youths use fake identity of being a Hindu to marry Hindu girls for which they get funding from different organisations. But, in ‘bahu lao-beti bachao’ campaign, we will neither ask the Hindu youths to cheat girls, nor provide them any money to lure girls of other communities,” Chauhan said.

He said Bajrang Dal will only provide protection to the couple —- Hindu boy and Muslim or Christian girl – if they face threat from their families before or after marriage. Bajrang Dal will also help any such couple to get married if their families oppose the decision, he added.

The campaign will be launched in other states such as Kerala and Karnataka. A mass awareness campaign on ‘bahu lao-beti bachao” will start soon through street plays, pamphlets and hoardings.

      The hidden idea is clear, since they are not promoting inter-cast marriage, but only love jihad. lt;br/gt;Since Muslim and Christians are not upper cast in north, the love never ends in marriage, since the family members or even the Bajrangdal could not accept an ' in-law ' from lower cast....lt;br/gt;And it's more horrible that they dare to declare it in a press meeting. It's possible in a country which is lead by a "for every action, there is a reaction" and in a country which is lead by those who forgot, "it's the duty of the Govt to control the wrong actions"lt;br/gt;Jai Hind

          Mr.Patriot, it seems you are the only one in the world who think that Jesus could not save himself, nevertheless, when you have a problem , ask Jesus to help you and your problem will vanish, that's a guarantee

            Excellent decision by vhp.time for christian to stop playing politics steal sheep and get into serious business with your creator.time to stop sending your kids to daycare and take personal care time to stop making you and your family as models on the ramp every Sunday.after all why are you so shaken about this news.don't you have confidence in your god or didn't you obey god's word in bringing up your kids in the ways of the lord and if not consider this a s a golden opportunity to do so. Get out of your comfort zone and get on to your knees and repent for your sins against God and his people.and start focusing of Godly upbringing .most Christians live in fear and cowardice .tell God to make you bold. The real "falling away" is on the way.what will you do then? And tell your church leader to stop talking on money and soothing messages and start teaching you some hard truths and stop piling up teachers who speaks things comfortable for your ears.I believe if you and your family would do the least of these things ,you would just fine.
