Voter lists in hand, Hindu Mahasabha looks for Christians, Muslims on Valentine’s Day

The outfit claimed that the process of identification was done 'well in advance' and that a constant 'vigil' is being kept.

hindu-mahasabha-l With Valentine’s Day approaching, Hindu Mahasabha said it has been keeping an eye on suspects for the past one week.

Right-wing outfit Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha has claimed that it has scanned Delhi’s electoral rolls to “identify Muslim and Christian men” who they suspect could sway Hindu girls. With Valentine’s Day approaching, it said it has been keeping an eye on them for the past one week.

Om Ji, the convener of the outfit who contested against Arvind Kejriwal, said his party has “thoroughly examined” Delhi’s electoral rolls. “We have our own ways. We examined the electoral list to mobilise the Hindu vote during elections. This is a common thing,” he said. “However, in the process, we systematically examined the number of Muslim and Christian men. We will use it on those who we suspect could sway our Hindu girls. This data is as accurate as even the census data. It is more accurate than even the data with the intelligence units.”

The outfit, which has threatened to forcefully get couples married on Valentine’s Day if they are caught together, claimed that the process of identification was done “well in advance” and that a constant “vigil” is being kept. On plans for Valentine’s Day, a member said, “Based on our data, we know the places with higher density of non-Hindu men. In these areas, our men will be deployed at public places like malls, multiplexes and restaurants.”

However, when asked, to give out the list of men they have identified, the member said, “We will not give the list today, we cannot spoil our plans. But I can tell you that the families of these boys know that we are keeping a vigil on them.”

The outfit also conceded that the “ghar wapsi” programme of the right-wing groups backfired in the Delhi elections. “We made the mistake of informing the media about our programme whether in Agra or Kanpur. The Delhi results show it backfired. Hence, now this will be done secretively, without any media glare, so that our aim of ghar wapsi is achieved,” said a member.

The members said they will first ask the Muslim and Christian men to convert “with love”, after which they will be “kidnapped” and forcefully married — according to “Hindu rituals”.
