New Delhi: In what may stoke controversy, a poster warning against ‘Love Jihad’ appeared in the premises of the BJP’s national headquarters in Delhi on Monday.
‘Love Jihad’ is a term used to refer to the alleged mission by some young Muslim boys in which they target girls belonging to non-Muslim communities for conversion to Islam by feigning love.
The controversial poster, which appealed to the Hindus to report such incidents, also cited the Bollywood stars Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan, as examples.
As per reports, the poster, which has now been removed from the BJP office, was allegedly put up by radical organization Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena.
It is the same organization, whose members roughed up Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan.
However, the appeal in the poster was made by a group named Anti-Love Jihad Front.
The organization has provided a phone number and an email id through which people can ‘report’ such incidents to them.
An official response on the issue is awaited.
