‘Love jihad’: Man attacked with axe, burnt alive in Rajasthan

A Muslim labourer from West Bengal was allegedly burnt alive in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand district for allegedly committing ‘love jihad’, according to reports.

The accused — who was arrested, had shot a video of the act and uploaded it on social media.

In the video, the accused, identified as Shambhu Lal, was seen attacking the victim with axe and later setting him on fire. The accused was also seen next to the burning body making threats on ‘love jihad’.

Shambhu was seen saying that those who indulge in ‘love jihad’ would meet the same fate..

On November 19, a controversial booklet and a pamphlet warning Hindu girls of ‘love jihad’ were allegedly distributed at a stall in an Hindu spiritual and service fair in Jaipur, prompting the police to order an inquiry.

The pamphlets, carrying a picture of a Bollywood actress, warned the people against ‘love jihad’ and also claimed that two Muslim actors had left their Hindu wives.
