Hyderabad: Valentine’s Day is approaching and so is the time for Bajrang Dal to be hyper-active in imbibing Indian culture among young lovers. The saffron outfit has approached pubs and club owners in Hyderabad’s upscale Banjara and Jubilee Hills, asking them not to plan any special events on Wednesday, as Valentine's Day is “a foreign culture”.
According to a Deccan Chronicle report, the outfit’s Hyderabad in-charge, Vishal Prasad said, “We have also approached shops and outlets selling gifts for the ‘Lover’s Day’ in the city.”
He further reasoned that such events are not part of the Indian culture and the youth should not indulge in foreign culture. “These things influence the youths and ruin their careers. These people create a public nuisance,” Prasad said.
Such dramatic claims have led to the Hyderabad Police taking caution and maintaining a tight vigil in public places.
Police officials have said that they will be maintaining the same security cover like last year and 23 teams will be deputed at the Jubilee Hills area on Wednesday.
