The Hindu Jagran Manch (HJM) has launched a campaign called “beti bachao, bahu lao” in response to “love jihad”. The group, which is affiliated to RSS, plans to wed 2,100 Muslim women to Hindu men in a matter of six months, the Indian Express reported.
The Indian Express quoted Ajju Chauhan, the state chief of HJM as saying:
Only Hindu girls are being targeted by Muslim youths in love jihad. They hide their Muslim identity, wear sacred thread on wrists, tilak on forehead and even recite Hanuman Chalisa to trap Hindu girls… jo jis bhasha me samjhega usko waise samjhayenge (We will teach them in their own language).
He went on to claim that this initiative is a form of population control measure: as muslim women have more babies in comparison to hindu women.
