Views expressed by dignitaries
Come together as Hindus, forgetting your castes and sects ! – Shri. Vikram Pavaskar, District President, BJP
Love jihad is a big attack on Hindu Dharma and there is now need to unite as Hindus rather than as communities. Jain community need not be afraid of anybody. All Hindus are supporting them.
Govt. should pass a law against ‘love jihad’ as soon as possible; love jihad should be made as a non-cognizable offence with punishment of minimum 15 years for the guilty – Shri. Vitthal Swami Maharaj, Mathadhipati, Jairam Swami Mutt, Vadgaon
Highlight : Copies of special issue published by ‘Dainik Sanatan Prabhat’ on ‘love jihad’ were distributed on the occasion.
