A Right Wing group was lathicharged by the Ghaziabad Police on Friday when it tried to intervene into an inter-religion wedding ceremony in Kavi Nagar, calling it an anti-national act and love jihad. Police said no complaint has been lodged in the case.According to a Hindu Yuva Vahini member, the incident took place around 1 am, when a Muslim man was about to marry a Hindu girl.”We heard about a Hindu girl marrying a Muslim boy. We intervened to save the girl’s life and asked the boy to change his religion. We also told the girl’s family what it was and that the boy was only interested in their money,” Balraj Doongar, president of the Hindu Yuva Vahini, Northern Uttar Pradesh region, said.Doongar further said the girl’s father failed to understand it. “We tried to give him an example also as these Muslims men and boys target young girls belonging to non-Muslim communities. It is their strategy to convert Hindu girls. They make them anti-national and turn them against fellow Indians, which is a threat to the country,” Doongar said.Locals reported the incident to police, who allegedly lathicharged the Right Wing group. The group, however, has requested the authority to register a complaint against the policemen for attacking its members.
