RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Saturday raked up the issue of 'Love Jihad' saying the girls should be taught its meaning and ways to save themselves from the "trap", more than a fortnight after BJP avoided its mention in political resolution at its executive meet in UP.

Addressing the closing session of the two-day All India Women Coordination Conclave at Krishna Dental College in Mohan Nagar here, the RSS chief exhorted the women to work towards their emancipation and empowerment.

"Girls of the coming generation should be told the meaning of 'Love Jihad' and the ways to save themselves from their traps," Bhagwat said.

He also raised the issue of female foeticide.

"Awareness drives should be initiated to eradicate the age-old tradition of female foeticide?with all force, as it has become a curse for?the Indian society," the RSS chief said.

Media coordinator of the conclave, Ghanshyam Sharma, told through a press release that 270 women delegates from most of the provinces attended the programme.
