On Friday night, members of a right-wing organization allegedly created a row at a hotel in Ujjain district, Madhya Pradesh, after they said a room had been rented to an interfaith couple and the landlord “encouraged the love jihad,” police said on Saturday.

The incident comes days after three members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad dragged a Muslim man and his Hindu travel companion off a train bound for Ajmer, at Ujjain station, accusing the former of ‘love jihad’ .

Hindu Dharma Jagran Manch Chairman Anish Arjhare said, “The 23-year-old Hindu woman belonging to Bhopal had come to Khandwa with a 23-year-old Muslim from Burhanpur. They tried to book a room in a hotel, but were turned down by at least 10 people. We learned later that they had been given a room in a local hotel in Khandwa, and we contacted the police to take action. We also called the woman’s family members as it was possible the man had misled her, but the police refused to take action.

Police declined to take action against the couple, citing an invasion of privacy.

“We inquired about the couple and they came here according to their wish. The woman, who is pursuing an MBA in Bhopal, said she was not forced to come here and did not want any action. We did not call the parents as it would be a violation of the woman’s privacy. I have asked the Hindu members of Jagran Manch to maintain their privacy and allow them to stay without any interference,” Kotwali Police Station Chief Baljeet Singh Bisen said.

The police also did not press charges against the far-right group. “No action has been taken against them as no one has filed a complaint.”
