At a five-day spiritual fair organized by Hindu Spiritual and Service Foundation (HSSF) in Jaipur, anti-Muslim content is being peddled in the form of two booklets by Vishva Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal Members. The booklets are pitched as a part of a campaign against “love-jihad”.

Reportedly, one of these is a 16-page manual titled  ‘Jihad and love jihad… Hindu girls beware’ being sold for Rs.5 by VHP and advises women in Hindu houses to use words such as “terrorists”, “anti-nationals”, “pro-Pakistanis”, “womanisers”, and “smugglers” for Muslims. It urges parents of school and college going girls to keep a check on their daughters’ activities.

The booklet says Muslim boys visit houses of Hindu girls regularly, respect their parents and gain their trust which is all a part of a “larger scheme”. The conversation between the boy and the girl then diverts towards love and the girl then wants to marry the same boy. If the parents do not approve of the marriage, the girl elopes with the boy and converts to Islam after marriage.

The booklet also reportedly has a rate-list that mentions amount of money received by “love-jihad” according to the caste of the Hindu girl married by Muslim men.

The second of these is a pamphlet that is being distributed for free by members of VHP and Bajrang Dal has two pictures of Kareena Kapoor, one of which is a morphed picture having a Bindi on her forehead and half of her face covered with a naqab (veil used by Muslims).

The pamphlet states that Muslims have been using “love-jihad” to “convert Hindus for the last thousand years”. Examples of marriages of Bollywood actors Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan have been cited as “examples… as they have deserted their Hindu wives to entrap other Hindu women”.
