Haryana government Considers Law Against “Love Jihad”

Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij said that he will bring a strict law to curb incidents of love jihad, one day after UP CM Yogi announced the same. On Sunday (November 1, 2020) , Anil Vij tweeted in Hindi, “A law against love jihad is being considered in Haryana”. 

Addressing election rallies in Jaunpur&Deoria, Adityanath on Saturday referred Allahabad HC ruling which said conservation just for the sake of marriage is not valid & said the Govt is working towards bringing a law to stop forced conversions. 

UP CM said that “The Allahabad High Court has said that for marriages, changing religion is not necessary. The government too has decided to check “love jihad” with all its might. An effective law would be made that would ensure that those who cheat gullible women by hiding their identity would be effectively dealt with”. 

A 21-year-old college student, last week, Nikita, was shot dead in Haryana’s Ballabhgarh by a man. The victim's family alleged that the man was pressuring her to convert to Islam in order to marry him. 

Love jihad refers to a term used by right-wing workers to describe interfaith relationships between a Muslim Man & a Hindu Woman.
