Mangaluru: There's nothing like 'love Jihad', stop immoral rowdyism, says Vidya Dinker


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru, Jan 3: Social activist Vidya Dinaker on Wednesday January 3 urged the state home minister to intervene in the rising cases of immoral rowdyism (moral policing) by right-winged outfits in the coastal region.

She was addressing a discussion on moral policing with students of various colleges and other activists at School of Social Work, Roshni Nilaya here.

"The situation in the coastal region is turning from bad to worse. Police department, district administration and law and order have completely failed. We have been targeted one way or the other. We had earlier spoken to the police commissioner on the rising issue of moral policing in the coastal region but no action has been taken so far," Vidya Dinker said.

"There is no concept like love Jihad, it is just love affair or a love marriage. The term love Jihad is used in a negative term to create a kind of war between religions through love. Now VHP and Bajrang Dal have started to sensitize people by distributing pamphlets on ‘Love Jihad’. They have also drawn limits about the term. During a recent interview in TV channel Bajrang Dal leader Sharan Pumpwell claimed that 100 Hindu girls have disappeared due to ‘Love Jihad’. I had asked him the details of those 100 missing girls so that we can have an open talk on this and discuss with the authorities concerned for suitable action. It is not right to keep the issue under the carpet and avoid raising it openly.

"We need to speak with the home minister as he should intervene immediately to tackle the deteriorating situation of coastal region," added Dinker.

Addressing the gathering, activist Shabeer said, "If you take the Pilikula incident, they visited Pilikula as students and not with the tagline of any religion. This mindset has to be changed. Instead of arresting these goons, police brought the students outside the Pilikula water park. Police should have stopped the goons but here students were hurdled and they were moving freely. One of them even thrashed a girl in the presence of police."

Responding to this, Vidya Dinaker said, “This shows that police have become the foot soldiers of these goons. We have to know who informed the police. Police claimed that the students were into illegal activities. If something illegal is happening inside the park then close the park.”

One of the students said, “It was sad that their IDs were shamelessly circulated in social media revealing their identity. Such moral policing will definitely influence and there would be sense of fear of getting noted. The fear and its consequences are stopping us from raising the voice. We need to be mentally strong in order to protest against such issues.”

Lecturer Shobana said, “My place has to be safe and I should able to move freely without any problem and it will be every individual’s wish how they want to be and what they want to be. Nobody should question their intent.”

President of Vimukthi Belthangady Fr Vinod said, “Even police are seen favouring these organizations and take decision based upon the religion.”

Vidya Dinaker said, “We should bring this to the notice of child welfare committee as they were minors and IDs were openly circulated in social media.”

She also said, “We should nurture confidence at home as well as in college to make youths feel safe in their respective society. Even the institutions and colleges need to raise voices and respond to these issues.”

“We will have a discussion with home minister and if possible a delegation can be sent to home minister on the issue and ask him to visit to Dakshina Kannada and intervene the issue.”

“It would be better if we take out peace march involving students accompanied by their parents to police commissioner's office and end up the march by questioning the role of police on moral policing,” said Dinaker.

Roshni Staff Kishore, Karnataka Gadinaadu Rakshana Vedike member Siddique Talapady, students of Agnes, Aloysius, Roshni Nilaya were present.

    A good and responsible event... Its now or never situation in Mangalore which was once a paradise and example of communal harmony... Sadly these right wing animals are systematically destroying the very fabric of our beautiful Mangalore...

    Unless every right minded and right thinking resident of Mangalore wakes up now and stands upto to these evil social elements we will see our Mangalore being ruined right infront of our eyes.. Educational institutions, religious leaders and responsible politicians (IF ANY !!) need to play a key role in educating everyone on whats going on in and around Mangalore.. We dont need jobless idiots to guard our society, our morals and our children.. If we can raise up families with hard work, we can very well manage our family morals and values.. These chaddis probably dont even have enough money to buy even a decent chaddi, and they talk about protecting our societies.. Utterly disgusting, disgraceful and garbage!!

    I fully agree with her that "Love Jihad" is perception created by the Sangh Parivar as an excuse to attack minorities and create enemity between religions and in the bargain disturb communal harmony and peace in society. Definitely this is the job of some strong politicians who are financing these activities by making use of jobless youth by giving them money, liquor and protection.

    What is morality? Who is teaching moral lessons to whom? The intervention with personal matters by unknown is tolerable by anyone? Has anyone assigned the parenting role to anyone? If the goons are called moral police what shall we call the police who take care of law and order?

    The crime in the presence just in front of them and they not able to control where we are heading? Parents do you want aliens to take care of your role? Where is the parents' existence!!! Just sit and cry? Where we are lacking? Whole society need to get involved for the morality constructively. This criminals are not tolerable!!!

    Communalism is a curse ti Mangalore and Mangaloreans. Terrorising people through moral policing and instilling fear in the society is not going to yield anything other than hatredness. The current scenario in Mangalore is forcing lot of business houses to back out from investing in this region. The result of the same is lack of unemployment among youth. No politicians and political outfits bothered about creating conducive environment for business and peaceful society as long as their purpose is served. The people at the land of intellectual (self imposed title) completely failed to read this. What kind of society we are leaving in 'when you start loving people around you then you will start loving the country'. Mangaloreans need to raise above communalism. Otherwise no future to this beautiful city.

    This article speaks the truth. There is nothing called Love Jihad. This is just a weapon used my political party for the vote bank purpose. Just answer yourself, is it only a Hindu and Muslim girls fall in love with each other ???? I have personally see couples of mixed religion. Why there is no name given to that???? This clearly seems that only one political party is showing more concern than needed. And Please note that these political parties are not really concerned about protection the religion or the youths. Main motto is to divide people for the sake of votes. Please educate yourself and try to understand what is the real scenario.

    (Could you please reply why you call these people as Hindus. In the past few years i have seen these people beating girls, attacking people in the name of cow slaughter, pelting stones at religious places, Sexually assaulting girls in the name of pub and party attacks. Do you consider this as part of Hinduism? Its a big NO from my end. This is not what i learnt from growing up with true humans.)
