6 Things Indian ‘Moral Vigilantes’ Have Done To Fight The Evil Of Valentine’s Day
Love is evil. Also, it is only for westerners.
Hey, it is not me saying that. Just those extremists who are short on life and love. So apparently if you are Indian, you can’t celebrate love. You are not supposed to hold hands, you cannot walk with the opposite sex.
#1. A university made 14th February a holiday making sure that people celebrated Mahashivratri instead of Valentine’s Day. WAIT WHAT?

This actually happened. Lucknow University shifted Mahashivratri holiday to 14th February so students don’t celebrate the “western” Valentine’s day. They wanted the students to be sanskaari. They forbade students from coming to college so they would never end up meeting and holding hands and be doing any lovey-dovey things. Well, played Lucknow University, that was f***ing savage! But have they never heard of CCD?
#2. Forcibly cutting off couple’s hair who are seen enjoying the day
I think they were really jealous. There is no explanation for such a ridiculous form of harassment. Six members of an orthodox Hindu group were arrested. They went around cutting the hair of couples who were found celebrating V-Day near Taj Mahal. You can’t celebrate love in front of a monument that is an epitome of love. WOW!
#3. Vandalising stores that sell V-Day gifts and merchandise
They figured love is material. If you can’t gift your beloved on the V-Day, how will you celebrate it? So another group vandalized gift shops and even McDonalds to ruin the fun for couples. This happened in India occupied Kashmir and the violence was done by an Islamic group. They claimed that celebrating Valentines Day was un-Islamic.
#4. Unmarried couples found hanging out on the day were forced to get married.
Apparently, Valentine’s Day is more westernized than the rising divorce rates in the country. Is this the way they try to normalize the stigma related to divorce in India? By forcing people to get married? Who knows. Some activists in Pune forced couples to marry on site. They were made to exchange varmala. In short, you can exchange varmala’s in public places but not saliva guys.
#5. Brothers and sisters found hanging out were beaten
So if you are thinking of using the excuse,” Yeh meri behen hai”, think again. They will assault you either way. In Ujjain, a Hindu fanatic group went around beating siblings they mistook for couples. They even went as far as blackening faces of actual couples. Don’t PDA guys, muh kaala ho jayega.
#6. Moral vigilantes drove a man to suicide in Kerala.
Moral Vigilantes prefer people committing suicide to holding hands. Next time you want to hold hands with your babe, consider killing yourself first.
In Kerala, a man was out with a female friend. These barbaric moral vigilantes recorded them and threatened to circulate the video on social media. They asked inappropriate questions to his female friend, then beat him up. Embarrassed beyond doubt, the man chose to kill himself and left a suicide note blaming this harassment as the reason he chose to die.
If you are in India, there is nothing worse you can do than fall in love. Or hold hands. If you want to stay safe, stay indoors, preferably with your family. You don’t want them to knock down doors and beat you up, do you?
