Bajrang Dal today burnt greeting cards of the upcoming Valentine’s Day at Koti in the city saying the event was not part of the Indian culture.
A group of over 20 members assembled near Koti cross roads and raised slogans saying “It (Valentine’s Day) is not our culture… it is western culture,” and burnt the greeting cards, Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal city secretary Shiva Ramulu said.
He said they will hold protests across the city against the celebrations of Valentine’s Day on February 14.
Ramulu said their teams would visit parks, resorts and pubs on Saturday and if they find unmarried young men and women celebrating the event they will catch hold of them and counsel them.
“We will counsel them (such couples) and after consultation with their parents, we will perform their marriage,” Ramulu said.
