Karni Sena Workers stopped Interfaith Marriage

Activists of Karni Sena allegedly stopped an interfaith marriage in Ballia district of Uttar Pradesh and created a ruckus at a court before forcibly taking the couple to a police station, according to officials. A video allegedly showing the commotion created by the Karni Sena supporters surfaced online Thursday in which the 18-year-old Dalit woman can be heard saying she was marrying the Muslim man willingly. The girl, who was willingly getting married to the man, was forced to leave the court and taken to the nearby police station by the right-wing group members. Ballia’s superintendent of police Vipin Tada said that a case had been registered on the basis of a complaint from the woman’s father, who said she had been “kidnapped”.
