What is Bajrang Dal?
If you haven’t heard of Bajrang Dal, it’s okay. You won’t be the only one. These people get ridiculously famous during this time of the year with Valentine’s Day approaching. Yes you heard it right couples!
Bajrang Dal is one good reason for singles to be thanking God. You are completely safe from these hateful people who roam around the cities like goons (they actually are goons) looking for a couple doing PDA (Public Display of Affection).
They can bloody find two people even touching each other by mistake from miles away. And if you are caught, why don’t you see for yourself?
What’s their story?
Bajrang Dal is a religious militant organization. They are basically a bunch of Hindus trying to take the majority for granted. The group started as something very moralistic, making sure people have values and they don’t wander far away from them but apparently they lose their mind during valentine’s day.
People in this country are still quite conservative and they still think that getting mushy-mushy in public is not acceptable and against the morals. These are the moral that the Bajrang Dal is trying to protect. When I say protect, I mean they will chase down the road with sticks in their hand wherever they see couples in public.
If you are a Hindu couple, only go out if you are ready to get married because they might even carry you to a temple on their backs. And if you are inter caste, I’m so sorry, but there is nothing you can do once you get caught.
Follow these tips to keep you and your partner safe from Bajrang Dal?
1. Act like you are married
Again, you need to do something fake in order to go home in one piece. No big deal, just pretend that you are married. This idea is not suggestive for people who are dating at 14 (there’s no hope for those in front of Bajrang Dal).
But if you look old enough, just tell them you are married and that you will call the police and hope that they leave you in peace.
2. Let’s see how supportive your parents are now
We all know that there are those cool parents who don’t have a problem with you having a girlfriend or a boyfriend.
So if you feel like Bajrang Dal is taking over big time in your area, just ask your parents to hang around you somewhere so that you can run to them if you are a victim.
3. Temple date
I know pretty freaking lame as it sounds, the idea is going to do so many wonders. If you are a religious person, you are already cursing me for saying this.
But if you aren’t, then you know why I gave this idea. Someone like Bajrang Dal, who will in their right mind think you are having a date in a temple? Just keep chanting and things will go smoothly.
4. Avoid a date on 14 February
Yes you heard that right. Avoid going on a date on 14th Feb instead go on 13th or 15th or any other day. Bajrang Dal is on red alert on 14th Feb so its better you see your partner another day.
5. Stop with the red dress code already
I know couples love wearing red on Valentines day. But have you ever seen a bull fight? The guys use red colored cloth and the bull runs after it like a monster.
Yes, so imagine yourself as the red cloth and Bajrang Dal as the Bull. Only God can save you now.
6. Take a judgement call
Why do you want to take any chance at all? Is that person even worth facing Bajrang Dal where you might end up without limbs?
Just break it off man and stay at home. Make a list of movies, buy those chocolates on discount for yourself and binge watch Netflix while going through Instagram in the other hand.
Keep you and your partner safe by following these tips and avoid getting in a mess with Bajrang Dal this Valentines day.
Team Folkire wishes you Happy Valentines Day in advance.
