At the police station, the man and the woman who are the family friends were forced to sit until the arrival of their parents.

Later, the man who is identified as Asif Shaikh, an electric shop owner and woman, school teacher were allowed to go after recording the statements.

No case has been registered against the goons. The cops said that they did not take action against them as no complaint has been registered in the incident.

Indian Express quoted Kundan Chandrawat, Prachar Pramukh for Malwa Prant of VHP as saying that the Bajrang Dal workers acted based on the information received from reliable sources.

Love Jihad

For the past few months, love jihad has become an important issue as even some of the states enacted a law against it.

Last month, Bajrang Dal goons threatened to launch a movement against ‘love jihad’ in Bihar after two cousin sisters from Darbhanga eloped with two youths from the Muslim community and got married in a mosque in Kolkata.

Anand Prakash Madhukar, the President of Darbhanga’s Bajrang Dal unit said, “Cases like these are increasing in the country. We need to have a strong law against them. Under the pretext of love jihad, youths from the other community were involved in affairs with Hindu girls intentionally, indulging in marriages and forcing them to change their religion. The young girls do not know the consequences of such acts. Basically, the idea behind love jihad is to torture Hindu girls after marriage”.
