On valentine's day, 10 men arrested for threatening couples in Ahmedabad

Valentine's Day in India Bajrang Dal VHP take to the streets Delhi traders give away roses

Bajrang Dal protests against V Day in Hyderabad

The group also threatened some pubs and clubs in Hyderabad to not host any special event to celebrate Valentine's Day.

In the South Indian city of Chennai, workers belonging to the Bharat Hindu Front solemnized "marriage" between a dog and a donkey as a mark of protest. They were seen scaring away couples with a saffron wooden stick. The miscreants were later detained by the police.

Taking responsibility for the incident, VHP media coordinator for north Gujarat, Hemendra Trivedi, said, "As announced by us, the VHP and Bajrang Dal members today held protests at the riverfront". Meanwhile in Ahmedabad, Bajrang Dal members protested against V'day by threatening the lovebirds for immediate marriages.

In Ahmedabad, "Moral police" turned out in full force in various parts of India against the celebration of Love- birds' Day on Wednesday.

Mumbai: To stop people from celebrating Valentine's Day on Wednesday, a group did something freakish.

Police officials have said that they will be maintaining the same security cover like past year and 23 teams will be deputed at the Jubilee Hills area on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Lucknow University had declared February 14 a holiday - not for Valentine's Day, but for "Mahashivratri".

Predictably, the coming of Valentine's Day has seen extremist and fundamentalist outfits from across the country act up in their own local areas of influence.

In Bengaluru, the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike had a similar idea, but with a contrary goal: they married off two sheep in favor of Valentine's Day celebrations. The advisory further stated that students should refrain themselves from indulging into western culture and instead celebrate Maha Shivaratri.

"We should not object to Valentine's Day because love does not have any community or caste".

A member, Vatal Nagaraj, said the government "should give Rs. 50,000-1L to any couple who marry for love".
