Celebrating Valentine's Day and following Western traditions blindly result in rapes and other sexual assaults, right wing group Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) said Monday.
HJS state convener Manoj Solanki told a press conference that its cadre would distribute pamphlets in colleges, private tuition classes, railway stations, bus-stations and at crowded places "demonstrating the ill-effects of Valentine's Day".
"Since the Bharatiya youth is turning towards indulgence by blindly following westerners, it has been noticed that the sale of contraceptives peak on this day in cities such as Mumbai and Pune. This leads to a rise in incidents of rapes and other atrocities," Solanki said.
