About

Bajrang Dal On Valentine's Day refers to a series of memes and discussions about the fringe Hindu nationalist group Bajrang Dal and their alleged practice of harassing unmarried Indian couples on February 14th, Valentine's Day. Memes about Bajrang Dal members gearing up for their supposed yearly activity began gathering attention after the year 2018, with Facebook and Twitter users being the first to joke about couples and events being harassed by the group before Instagram pages began spreading more memes on the topic after 2021.

Origin

Hindu fringe group Bajrang Dal, alongside other groups like Hindu Mahasaba, have a history of holding anti-Valentine's day protests on account of the celebration being "foreign," "anti-national," and "anti-Indian values." The group's misgivings with the celebration hinge on their belief that unmarried couples are (and by extension premarital sex is) immoral.[1][2][3]

On February 7th, 2017, Facebook[4] page RVCJ Media posted the earliest known meme to reference Bajrang Dal's reported practice of harassing couples and venues celebrating Valentine's Day. The post gathered over 100,000 likes in nearly six years (seen below, left).
