According to reports, the members of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind made public an invitation card for the event which went viral over social media.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) took cognizance of the incident and requested the Karimnagar Police to take appropriate action against Jamaat-e-Islami Hind. They also requested the Karimnagar Police Commissioner to deny permission for the event and warned of serious consequences if the get-together takes place.
Notably, to avoid any untoward incident or communal clash, a large Police force was deployed at the venue on 30th October. Tension had been prevailing in the area ever since the news of the event went viral on social media.
Vutukuru Radhakrishna Reddy, President of the Gauraksha wing of the VHP stated that the Islamist organisation was trying to trap Hindu girls as part of ‘Love Jihad’. “The proposed programme hurts the self-respect of Hindus”, Reddy said.
Reddy also demanded that the Police take stringent action against the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind members. He also appealed to all the Hindu girls asking them not to attend such events at any cost.
