With elections fast approaching, a screening of the film on the contentious issue of ‘love jihad’ was organized at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi.
However, the screening was disrupted by a few student groups, who alleged that a hate campaign was being propagated by showing the movie.
The screening of the film titled ‘In the Name of Love-Melancholy of God’s Own Country’, was organised by Global Indian Foundation and Vivekanand Vichar Manch of JNU.
Going by the organizers of the film screening, the movie focused on the issue of ‘love jihad’ and religious conversion of girls in Kerala.
Members of Jawaharlal Nehru Students Union and Gender Sensitization Committee Against Sexual Harassment disrupted the screening.
Such was the vehement protest that minor scuffles erupted between protesters and ABVP members.
The Delhi Police said it has received complaints from both the sides and is looking into Friday’s incident.>
