The booklets were being sold and distributed at a five-day ‘spiritual’ Fair organised by Hindu Spiritual and Service Foundation (HSSF) that began on Thursday. When contacted, the organisers denied provocative material was being distributed at the fair. “This is a spiritual fair; we are not distributing any literature on love jihad,” HSSF co-secretary Rajendra Singh Shekhawat said.
Titled ‘Jihad and love jihad… Hindu girls beware’, the 16-page VHP manual recommends that parents monitor their daughters’ activities at school and college, scan their mobiles phones and warn them if a Muslim boy comes home to meet them. It also presents a purported ‘love jihad rate card’ listing the different sums a Muslim man “stands to earn” for “luring and converting girls from different communities and regions”. Among the visitors at the fair are hundreds of school and college students who are brought there by their institutes. HSSF has tied up with 1,200 such institutions in and around Jaipur. Organisers claim that about two lakh students would have attended the fair by Monday.
