UP Government submits proposal to the law department for an Act against love jihad

The BJP government at the Center should make efforts to legislate such an Act in the entire country instead of States legislating it separately in their States.

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) – The Uttar Pradesh Government’s Home Ministry has sent a proposal to the law department to enact a law against ‘love jihad’. The Government has decided to legislate as the incidents of love jihad have increased in the State. The proposal has been sent in that context.

Commenting on ‘Love Jihad’ at the hearing of a case, the Allahabad High Court had said, ‘Conversion that is carried out only for marriage is illegal’. The remark could be used to legislate.
