Mumbai: Backing BJP leader Swami Adityanath, the Shiv Sena today said 'love jihad' is part of a "global conspiracy" to destroy Hindu culture.
In an editorial in its mouthpiece 'Saamana', the Sena cited RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's statement where he said that Hindu girls should beware of 'love jihad'.
"Hindus in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand are angry about this issue and he (Adityanath) is voicing their anger," the editorial said backing the BJP leader.
It further said that those who have called for this kind of jihad should be taught a lesson.
"Terrorist organisations across the world have called for jihad against Hindustan," it said, adding, that terror outfits like Lashkar-e-Toiba, SIMI, Al-Qaeda aim to destroy the secular fabric of the country.
"If Hindus are not going to wake up and if the governments are not going to act against those behind 'love jihad', it won't be long before the jihadis' plans succeed," the editorial said.
