Cong, CPM criticizing mag without reading its content: VHP

imagesSHIMLA: Under attack for using a morphed picture of Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor on the cover of its edition “Himalaya Dhwani” on love jihad, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Thursday said that Congress and CPM were criticizing their magazine without reading its content.

“This picture should have been treated as a cartoon, but Congress and Communist got so much agitated that they started treating ‘Himalaya Dhwani’ as ‘Charlie Hebdo’ (a French weekly recently under attack),” said VHP’s state organizing secretary Manoj Kumar. He said the actor’s picture was half covered with burqa to show that she had married a Muslim.

VHP also held a protest demonstration against chief minister Virbhadra Singh on Thursday, terming his recent statement on love jihad issue as against Hindu organizations. Durga Vahini’s regional convener Rajani Thukral said that protest demonstrations would continue till the time Virbhadra does not seek a public apology for his statement.
