New Delhi:

The Rajasthan government has ordered all the state-run schools in Jaipur to send their students and teachers to take part in a five-day fair organised by RSS-backed Hindu Spiritual and Service Foundation (HSSF) where girls were being taught about “Love Jihad.”

Not just that, on the directions of Primary and Secondary Education Minister Vasudev Devnani, it was made compulsory for all the students to attend the fair.

The fair is said to be organised for philosophically explaining that through traditional Hindu lifestyle, many contemporary challenges including women’s honour, patriotism can be solved.

The right wing organisation Bajrang Dal was running an awareness program and distributing pamphlets on “Love Jihad” to all the female students attending the fair.

The manual cites Bollywood celebs Saif Ali Khan, Aamir Khan’s marriages as examples of Love Jihad.

The Pamphlet also describes places of Love Jihad which includes Beauty Parlours, Mobile recharge Shops, Ladies tailor’s shops and Muslim Feri-walas.

At fair, Bajrang Dal's booklet also explains ways to save Hindu women from "Love Jihad". It said, parents should “call Muslims as disgusting, terrorist, smuggler, traitor and Pakistan supporters in front of females at home.”

The students were also asked to sign up for a campaign to declare Cow as “national mother” and switch to Vegetarianism.

A Baba named Jai Guru Dev, says people should become vegetarian to make their children’s future brighter and save women’s honour.
