Mumbai: While Hindu right-wing groups in Gujarat have sought to bar the entry of Muslims at garba events to prevent ‘Love Jihad’ incidents, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has turned aggressive and is planning a worship of weapons and Hindutva jagran (awareness) across the country during the Navratri festival for women to counter ‘Love Jihad’.
The Navratri festival starts on October 13 and ends on 22.
“We will organise a recitation of hymns like the Durga saptashati and shastrapujan (worship of arms) for women and girls,” VHP secretary Vyankatesh Abdeo told dna, adding this will be done in every district across the country.
The VHP has also called on its supporters to chant the name of Lord Ram from 11.15 am to 12.30 pm on November 25 to pray for “eradicating the obstacles” in construction of the Ram Temple at Ayodhya, said Abdeo. The VHP is seeking a legislation for the construction of the Ram mandir.
