VHP dubs VD celebration as mania, demands ban

Dubbing Valentines Day celebration on February 14 every year as nothing but a mania, Telangana State Vishwa Hindu Parishath president Rama Raju observed that boys and girls indulging in indiscriminate obscene acts in the name of celebration was a social crime and it should be proscribed as it vitiates Indian culture and traditions.

He was speaking at poster release against the Valentines Day by the Bajrang Dal here on Friday. Speaking to mediapersons, VHP city convener Vireshalingam said they were opposing the Valentines Day event for the past ten years as it is anti-Hindu and Indian culture. “We are totally against the events like Kissing Day, Hugging Day and so on of western culture. He also alleged that Pubs and Bars have been encouraging obscene western culture in Hyderabad city and making sacred colleges and schools as centers of amorous activities. He said the Bhajrang Dal won’t keep quiet and warned of dire consequences if any pubs or Bars organize Valentine Day events to make hay.

The VHP and Bhajrang Dal leaders appealed to the youth not to participate in such events and condemn them. Those who participate in the VD event, would be given counseling in the presence of their families. The Telangana Bajrang Dal posters released on Friday demanded that the government ban Valentines Day celebrations and protect Indian culture.

Bhajrang Dal leaders Jeevan, Vijay Sharma, Mukesh and others were present. (NSS)
