Radical Hindus stormed the headquarters of an Indian television network today and damaged equipment to protest the broadcast of reports on a controversial Hindu-Muslim marriage, witnesses said. Activists from a group calling itself the Hindu Rashtriya Sena (Hindu National Army) used hammers to smash windows, computers and cameras at the Star News office in India’s commercial hub before police intervened.

“They threatened journalists and smashed our studios and cars and warned that an even larger group of activists will return to teach us a lesson if we highlight inter-religion marriages,” a spokesman for the channel said.

Police said arrests had been made. “We arrested 17 of them on the spot and we are taking legal action,” Mumbai Police Commissioner J N Jadhav told reporters.

The Muslim woman and her Hindu husband presented themselves to the channel last week saying they faced threats because of their marriage, and have appeared on several Star News programmes.

Star News is a division of Rupert Murdoch’s Hong Kong-based Star group.
