Members of Hindutva group Bajrang Dal burnt a copy of the Kama Sutra outside a bookstore in Ahmedabad city, stating that the book shows Hindu deities in “vulgar positions”.
Kama Sutra, written in Sanskrit by ancient Indian philosopher Vatsyayana, is the most celebrated treatise on love and sex.
According to a video that went viral on social media, while burning the book, the group shouted “Jai Shri Ram” and “Har Har Mahadev” slogans.
It was not immediately clear which bookstore the members of the Hindutva group had targeted.
The Bajrang Dal members also warned that they would burn the bookstore if it continued to sell copies of the Kama Sutra.
