Yogi Adityanath's Hindu Yuva Vahini allegedly kills man for helping 'love jihad' couple in UP

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath founded Hindu Yuva Vahini is on the wrong side of the law again for allegedly lynching a 45-year-old man in Bulandshahr.

"The victim identified as Ghulam Mohammad was thrashed by some men after his relative eloped with a Hindu girl a few days ago," an India Today report said.

The man reportedly met with a gruesome end for allegedly helping one of his relative to elope with a Hindu girl.

Even as Mohammad's family members pointed fingers at the right-wing outfit, the police have not taken the name of any individual although it named the organisation in its FIR.

"Seven persons reportedly attacked the deceased but not a single person belonged to the Hindu Yuva Vahini," the Meerut range in charge of the Hindu Yuva Vahini, Vivek Singh told The Hindu.

As reports say, a 19-year-old boy eloped with an 18-year-old which was seen as kidnapping by the girl's family.

"The group allegedly arrived when the girl's family complained that the police hadn't taken action. Around 9.30 am on Tuesday, the attackers spotted Ghulam Mohammad sitting in a mango orchard, dragged him to a deserted spot and allegedly lynched him," an NDTV report said.

In March, the fringe group's members allegedly barged into a home in Meerut and thrashed a young couple on the suspicion of "love jihad", the term used for the baseless allegation that Muslim men were seducing Hindu women to convert them to Islam.

The boy has accused the group's members of moral policing, reported Zee News.

"I have asked the police to take strict action as the Muslim boy was romancing with a Hindu girl in the house. He wanted to convert her religion. I also insist on taking strict action against the landlords, who give rooms on rent without proper verification," ANI had quoted Nagendra Singh Tomar, the head of Hindu Yuva Vahini, as saying.
