Mangaluru: A ban on New Year’s parties has been requested by Bajrang Dal in a memorandum to the police commissioner of Mangaluru, who also claimed that Muslim men “misuse bars and pubs for love jihad.” The group also urged the police to close all bars and pubs on New Year’s Day for a set period of time.
The right-wing group also requested in a letter to the pub owners and manager not to allow Muslim men to enter hotels and pubs.
Bajrang Dal leader Puneet Attavar claimed that Muslim youths should not be permitted to enter hotels and bars on the eve of the New Year because “alcohol and music are forbidden in Islam.”
“Today, there are more instances of love jihad and clothing jihad because of the hotels and pubs in Manguluru.” “These places encourage them to get involved in malpractices,” he said.
Parties and drinking alcohol are banned in Islam, but these days you can spot many of them in Mangaluru’s pubs. “That is why we urge all pub owners and managers on behalf of the Bajrang Dal organisation that Muslims should not be allowed at pubs and parties on the eve of the New Year on December 31,” he added.
