After one of the editor’s tweets went viral, local Hindu and Muslim organizations called the hall manager to cancel the event to maintain peace in the area.
Mumbai: The wedding reception party of a newly married Hindu-Muslim couple has been canceled following protests by local organizations in Vasai, Maharashtra, following the Shraddha massacre. The police gave this information on Saturday. Shraddha Walker, the victim of the Mehrauli massacre in Delhi, was a resident of Vasai town in Palghar district. A photo of the reception invitation was posted by a news channel editor on Friday morning with the hashtags lovejihad and terrorists.
And this program was linked to the Shraddha Walker murder case. A police station official later said that a reception for a Hindu-Muslim newlywed couple was organized in a hall on Sunday evening. But he said that the event was canceled after the reception was protested.
Police officials while informing about the incident said that after an editor’s tweet went viral, local Hindu and Muslim organizations called the hall manager to cancel the event to maintain peace in the area.
After that, people from both the families of the newlyweds came to the Manikpur police station and canceled the reception, he said.
While giving information about the newlyweds, the police said that the woman, who is a Hindu, and her husband is a Muslim, have known each other for the past eleven years.
Therefore, both the families have supported this marriage without opposing it. And then on 17th November went to the court and got an interfaith marriage.
Aftab Amin Poonawala strangled his live-in partner Shraddha Walker on May 18. Her body was then cut into 35 pieces.
But he admitted that he cut her into 18 pieces. After that, the accused who killed Shraddha kept her body parts in the fridge of his house in South Delhi’s Mehrauli for three weeks.
After that for some days he was throwing those pieces in different areas. So now the Delhi Police is thoroughly investigating the matter. Accused Aftab is searching for where the pieces of her body were dumped.
In this case, Shraddha’s old chiefs were also interrogated, because the police thought that this would solve the case.
