Amid the Tanishq ad controversy, an excerpt from a book titled “Love Jihadis: An Open Minded Journey into the Heart of Western Uttar Pradesh” is being widely shared on Twitter. It carries an interview of a godwoman from Meerut who said, “Muslim men are sensuous and are better at satisfying a woman’s desire so Hindu girls fall for them.”
In the wake of the Tanishq ad controversy, a lot has been said about Muslim men on social media, most of which hasn’t been too flattering. However, after an excerpt from a recent book, which carried an interview of “Godwoman” Chetna Devi, was published, there have been a few comments that could be construed as high praise as well.
“Muslim men are sensuous and are better at satisfying a woman’s desire so Hindu girls fall for them,” the excerpt from the book “Love Jihadis: An Open Minded Journey into the Heart of Western Uttar Pradesh” quotes the “Godwoman” as saying.
Devi goes on to add that it was this very trait that will ensure that the Muslim population will outnumber Hindus in India by the year 2030 — and in the process heavily implies that Hindu women don’t have a mind of their own.
"Muslim men are sensuous and are better at satisfying a woman's desire so Hindu girls fall for them…Therefore, if a Hindu girl experiences intimacy with a Muslim boy, she falls madly in love." -Meerut's anti love-jihad 'Godwoman'.https://t.co/0G7yvEXfE8

To prepare ourselves from this sensuous assault, Devi goes on to preach that “Hindus — the peaceful community — should take up arms and prepare for a war of faith that will preserve their religion and existence”. According to the excerpt published in Scroll.in, Devi goes on to add that it is also the reason why it’s important to train Hindu women and children in weaponry.
"It does not disturb her that her love for her fellow Hindus is fuelled by hatred for Muslims. Indeed, hatred seems to be guiding force of her myopic worldview. Her hate is genuine, much like true love. She isn’t faking it for some political convenience."https://t.co/Sm4Q9kERBy

Chetna Devi also goes by Yati Maa Chetnanand Saraswati, and is the head of the Meerut-based Akhand Hindustan Morcha. In the book, written by Mihir Srivastava and Rahul Irani, she paints herself as the saviour of Hindus from the “love jihad” conspiracy theory, which claims that Hindu girls are enticed by Muslim men into getting married, only to be forcibly converted to Islam by their in-laws.
Wait.. so basically Sanghis don’t want us to get with Muslim men because they know they are better lovers?!?!?!? 🤣🤣🤣🤣 यार थोड़ा तो भरोसा रखो अपनी भी skills पर.. oh sorry.. आपसे तो ये भी नहीं हो पाता!!!!! #इनसेनाहोपाएगा #SanghiShittyLovers https://t.co/F1XT96LUJ9

Several Twitter users, however, failed to see the severity of her dire warning, going on to accept the label with a lot of pride (and mirth), as the term sensuous Muslim soon began to trend on the site.

Devi’s comments also accidentally ended up offending the very community she was trying to defend. Soon after her quote began to trend, a number of Hindu men rushed to defend themselves, insisting that that they too, could be quite sensuous at times.
Who is she ? I think she has never dated a real Hindu or else She would know wht real love making is and how to treat a women after making love to her is !! We Hindu treat each and every women in respect . So ma’am don’t compare making love with meaningless lust ! Jai Hind

At this point, it’s probably safe to say that Devi’s attempt to counter “love jihad” has backfired. If anything, it’s possibly one of the nicest things a “godwoman” has said about the community on the internet in a long time.
