BENGALURU – Alleging that thousands of Hindu girls were being exploited in the name of “love jihad,” Sri Ram Sena chief Pramod Muthalik has called on young Hindu men to lure “10 Muslim girls if we lose one Hindu girl” and assured security and employment to them.

According to The Indian Express, Muthalik, while speaking at a public event in Karnataka’s Bagalkote on Feb 19, alleged that thousands of Hindu girls were being exploited in the name of “love jihad”, a term coined by the Hindutva groups to allege that Muslims are seeking to deceive Hindu women through marriage and convert them to Islam, and called for young men to “respond in kind”.

“We are aware of the situation. I would like to invite the youth here. If we lose one Hindu girl, we should trap 10 Muslim girls. If you do so, the Sri Ram Sena will take responsibility for you and provide every kind of security and employment,” he said on February 19.

 

“Our girls are exploited in “love jihad.” Across the country, thousands of girls are cheated in the name of love. We should warn them,” he further said.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Muthalik said he had made similar statements more than 10 times and would continue to do so to “protect” Hindu women. “I am not saying this because elections are round the corner. My statements have always been in the interest of Hindus,” he added.

“I am not saying this because elections are around the corner. My statements have always been in the interest of Hindus,” the report quoted him as saying.

Condemnation and call for action against Muthalik

The report added that Muthalik’s comments have been widely criticised, with “love jihad” considered to be a baseless conspiracy theory that courts have rejected.

The Muthalik’s remarks were condemned by a number of civil society members in the country.

Journalist Mohammed Zubair — who was arrested for allegedly insulting Hindu religious leaders on Twitter — asked why the Karnataka police was not taking action against Muthalik.

Film director Mansoor Hussain Khan said that Muthalik’s “bigoted and sexist hate speech” had brought shame to the people of Karnataka. He also called on the police to take strict action against the politician.









Author and activist Rahul Easwar tweeted that “in our Arsha Bharatha Sanskriti, we consider woman as devatas [goddesses]”. “It’s up to every Patriot to serve & protect all women from all traps this way or that way,” he added.
