Communist attacks students and Security woman at the screening of “In the Name of Love” Documentary

The screening of a film on the contentious issue of love jihad at Jawaharlal Nehru University here was disrupted by a few student groups, who alleged that a hate campaign was being propagated by showing the movie.

 The screening of the film titled In the Name of Love-Melancholy of Gods Own Country was organized by Global Indian Foundation and Vivekanand Vichar Manch of JNU.

According to the organizers, the film, directed by Sudipto Sen, focussed on the issue of love jihad and religious conversion of girls in Kerala.

Members of Jawaharlal Nehru Students Union and Gender Sensitisation Committee Against Sexual Harassment disrupted the screening, alleging a hate campaign was being propagated in the guise of the films screening.

Minor scuffles erupted between protesters and ABVP members. The Delhi Police said it has received complaints from both the sides and is looking into yesterdays incident.

Students opposed to the film had assembled at Sabarmati dhaba to protest the “hate propaganda in the name of love jihad”. They breached security cordons and disrupted the screening by holding placards in front of the screen.

“Why is ABVP/RSS hiding behind Vivekanand Vichar Manch? We wont let the RSSs venomous Love Jihad myth be propagated,” said a statement issued by the Left hooligans.


The ABVP in a statement said: “After disrupting the screening of the movie at Sabarmati dhaba, the left-wing protesters grievously injured a guard intentionally.”
