    In a recent incident, a Muslim couple in Hyderabad has filed a complaint against right-wing harassment. The couple has alleged that they were harassed by members of a right-wing group who accused them of “love jihad,” a term used by Hindu nationalists to describe the alleged practice of Muslim men marrying Hindu women with the intent of converting them to Islam.

    The incident took place on September 19 when the couple was travelling on a two-wheeler in the city’s Kukatpally area. According to the complaint filed by the couple, a group of people on bikes intercepted them and started questioning them about their religion. The group allegedly accused the man of trying to convert the woman and threatened to take them to the police.

    The incident has sparked outrage among civil rights activists and members of the Muslim community who have accused right-wing groups of targeting Muslims and spreading hatred against them. Many have pointed out that the term “love jihad” is a baseless conspiracy theory that has been used by Hindu nationalists to demonize Muslims and justify their attacks against them.

    The incident in Hyderabad is not an isolated one. In recent years, there have been several cases of right-wing harassment and violence against Muslims in India. In 2015, a Muslim man was lynched by a mob in Uttar Pradesh over rumors that he had eaten beef. In 2017, a Muslim man was beaten to death by a mob in Rajasthan for allegedly transporting cows.

    The rise of right-wing nationalism in India has led to an increase in hate crimes against minorities, especially Muslims. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been accused of promoting a Hindu nationalist agenda that seeks to marginalize Muslims and other minorities.

    The incident in Hyderabad is a stark reminder of the challenges faced by Muslims in India today. It is important for the government to take strong action against those who promote hate and violence against minorities. The police must ensure that the perpetrators of the harassment are brought to justice and that the couple is provided with adequate protection.

    In conclusion, the incident in Hyderabad is a disturbing reminder of the growing intolerance and hatred towards Muslims in India. It is important for all citizens to stand up against hate and bigotry and to promote a culture of peace and harmony. The government must take strong action to protect the rights of minorities and to ensure that they are not targeted by hate groups. Only then can India truly become a democratic and inclusive society where all citizens are treated with dignity and respect.
