We are not love jihad people: Jignesh Mevani says in Delhi rally

Meanwhile, people are criticizing the Delhi Police for misleading people by saying that "No permission granted so far by Delhi Police to hold proposed protest at Parliament Street in view of NGT orders". Azad (30) was arrested in June past year from Himachal Pradesh as he is the main accused in Thakur-Dalit clashes in Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur district. Referring to the violence that marked the 200th anniversary of the Bhima Koregaon battle in Pune last week, he asked: "Why the violence took place in Bhima Koregaon?" "We only talk about love and harmony". "I don't have to answer it but you have to answer me. We will celebrate April 14 and Valentine's Day too", he said. You have to answer why people are not getting the money that is in the foreign accounts of Indians.

A senior Delhi Police official said no "formal permission was given for the rally, but it was allowed to be held to maintain peace". This after the cops earlier said that the newly elected MLA's request was "under consideration". We do not believe in love jihad.

Ahead of today's rally, Mr Mevani had criticized the Prime Minister in strong terms, accusing him of failing to speak out against the atrocities Dalits are facing.

The rally witnessed a modest turnout and Mevani shared stage with JNU student leaders, including Kanhaiya Kumar, Shehla Rashid and Umar Khalid. He alleged that the BJP was creating communal divisions to rule.

The lawmaker from Gujarat's Vadgaon, who won the recent assembly elections with the support of the Congress, has denied the accusations. Almost 15,000 security personnel - armed with water cannons and tear gas - were deployed in areas near Jantar Mantar and Parliament Street in the national capital to prevent protesters from carrying out a march to the Parliament building.
