Mumbai: Hindu organisations took out a massive rally in Mumbai on Sunday against ‘love jihad’ and demanded anti-conversion laws and a crackdown on land grabbing in the name of religion.
Leaders and activists of organizations such as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) marched in the rally.
Hindu Jan Akrosh Morcha, organised by Sakal Hindu Samaj, began from Shivaji Park in Dadar in central Mumbai and culminated at Kamgar Maidan in Parel, covering a distance of more than 4 km.

Police personnel were deployed along the route of the march to prevent any untoward incident.
Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had said last December that the government would study laws on “love jihad” framed by other states and take an appropriate decision.
He had also spoken about a “feeling” in the legislature regarding the Shraddha Walkar case that instances of “love jihad” are seen at a large scale in the state.
