'Burnt man to death to save girl from love jihad'

The victim has been identified as Mohammed Afrazul, 48, from Malda in West Bengal.

The victim Mohammed Afrazul's family is reportedly in disbelief, saying, "Those who killed him like an animal and showed his pictures to the world should be hanged".

Hate reared its ugly head again, this time in Rajasthan, where a man was hacked and then burnt alive in the name of opposing "Love Jihad".

Surprisingly, in another video, which is also going viral, Raigar, is seen justifying his act.

Shambhulal has now been arrested by the Rajasthan Police, according to reports, and booked under IPC Section 302, among other sections, but Rajasthan home minister Gulab Chand Kataria calling the incident "shocking" is simply laughable. Apart from this he also passed threats on "love Jihad" standing next to the burning body.

A horrifying video of a man being burnt alive in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district has gone viral on social media. The perpetrator of the heinous crime even recorded the video of the act which was later circulated on the social media.

Police in the western Indian state of Rajasthan have arrested a man who allegedly hacked another man to death and set him alight before sharing video of the apparent religious attack. "The half-charred body was found near Rajsamand... around 1 pm on Wednesday and the deceased was identified as Mohammad Afrazul".

After watching the videos, the police have said that the attacker first hit the victim with the agricultural equipment, then poured kerosene on his body and set him ablaze.

The term love jihad is used by right-wing Hindu organisations to describe the incidents of Muslim men marrying Hindu girls by getting them converted.

Amid claims that the material was handed out at a stall of Bajrang Dal, its coordinator Ashok Singh denied that it was distributed from their stall.
