New Delhi: After controversial 'ghar wapsi' and 'love jihad' programme, the RSS and affiliated groups have come up with another conversion programme 'Bahu lao, Beti bachao' (bring a daughter-in-law, save a daughter).
This time they are actively widespreading their campaign in West Bengal. Instead of hounding a Hindu-Muslim couple, they are now facilitating their union but the only condition is that the bride, a Muslim woman, should have to become Hindu after a 'suddhikaran' (purification) programme.
Indian Express reported that from Vishwa Hindu Parishad to Hindu Samhati, Hindu Jagran Manch to Bharat Sevashram Sangha, all have stepped up in support of this campaign, what they call it a answer to 'love jihad' or 'ghar wapsi'.
The programme is spreading its legs in districts where the BJP has made significant electoral gains last year.
The regions where rise of the BJP has coincided with the spread of this campaign are: South 24 Parganas, North 24 Parganas, Murshidabad, Howrah and Birbhum.
Indian Express claimed to meet several couples who openly credit the Hindu groups for their marriage.
VHP leader Badal Das estimated that at least 500 Muslim and Christian women have become Hindus through marriage in the last one year.
He said that all women have adopted Hindu names and their families have been advised to join the BJP for their safety.
Hindu Samhati chief Tapan Ghosh said that objective is to rescue the victims of love jihad and bring Muslim girls to Hindu homes.
