Indian media has been very selective in picking and debating moral policing cases from Khaps or random Hindu organizations. But, they don’t highlight cases in which inter-religious killings, when Hindu youths-men are killed due to marriage with Muslim girls and women. If these cases of Hindu victims are not highlighted by the so called liberal and secular media and the rights activists, the fight against religious bigotry and moral policing will smack of hypocrisy and selective propaganda in favour of Radical Islam.
