Panaji: Celebrating Valentine's Day by lovers and following Western traditions blindly results in rapes and other sexual assaults, right wing Hindu group Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) claimed in Panaji on Monday.
HJS state convener Manoj Solanki said 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 peaks on this day in cities such as Mumbai and Pune. This leads to a rise in incidents of rapes and other atrocities," Solanki said.
