New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Subramanian Swamy has come out openly in support of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat's remark that ‘activists' of 'Love Jihad' are getting foreign funds.
He also said that the BJP will soon come up with a uniform civil code to stop this menace.
Swamy's was reacting to media reports stating that it happened due to the machinations of multiple foreign-funded Muslim organizations targeting innocent Hindu girls.
This dangerous phenomenon was mentioned twice in the US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks in 2010 and 2011. A cable mailed by Andrew T Simkin, US Consul General in Chennai on February 26, 2010, had alerted his bosses in the USA that ‘an alleged conspiracy of ‘foreign-funded' Muslim men attempting to seduce, marry, and convert Hindu and Christian women, has led to state-level investigations and generated widespread suspicions in South India'.
Recently, Bhagwat had said that girls should be taught its meaning and ways to save themselves from the ‘trap'.
"Girls of the coming generation should be told the meaning of 'Love Jihad' and the ways to save themselves from their traps," he had said.
Swamy was speaking at an event organised by the Bhiwani Parivar Maitri Sangh in New Delhi on Sunday.
He also took the opportunity to attack the Nehru family by raking up the issue of dynasty-dominated politics.
