  • Godhra to bar Muslims, garba banners say: Daughter before my eyes

    To keep young women and girls “safe” from Muslim youth and ‘love jihad’ during the Navratri festivities, the BJP and RSS affiliates are urging Godhra residents to organise the traditional or sheri garba to restrict entry and “maintain the purity of the event”. Ashish Bhatt, former VHP member who now heads the cultural cell of the Panchmahals district unit of the BJP, said: “Last year, we tried to keep out Muslims from venues of large, professional garba events to prevent love jihad.
