    • The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Kerala chapter has launched Shivaji Hindu Helpline to offer assistance to the Hindus in distress including the girls who fall victims in the trap being laid by the 'love jihadis'.


      The helpline, set up at the Hindu Cultural Centre at the Paavakkulam Temple complex at Kaloor in Ernakulam, has been receiving large number of distress calls. Though, the helpline will provide assistance such as legal and medical help to the Hindus, it is also meant to receive information on terrorist activities, cow slaughter etc. Cibin, helpline coordinator, said that the helpline no: 9497545511 had received around 8,000 calls so far. A diary has been maintained to keep all the information regarding the callers.


      Parents, friends and the victims themselves are calling the helpline seeking assistance. Till now, around 750 cases have been reported to the police.


      Of this, 366 girls from various communities have been rescued from the 'trap', with the initiative of the VHP and Bajrang Dal workers. 72 Nair, 33 Ezhava, 14 Christians and 90 Brahmin girls were among the rescued. 113 girls were rescued directly by the VHP and the Bajrang Dal workers, he said.


      VHP state secretary Kalady Manikantan told Express that many girls would get converted after being selectively employed in shops run by the Muslims. The modus operandi is to persuade the Hindu and Christian girls by offering them job security, promotion and salary hike, he said.
    • A counselling centre has also been opened in Kochi. A website 'kerala' will be launched soon offering assistance to the needy. Modelled on the Kerala initiative, 'All India Hindu Helpline' will be launched in Pune soon on the direction of VHP international secretary general Dr Praveen Bhai Togadia, Manikantan said.
