Law against Love Jihad in UP:
Since the killing of a young woman in Ballabhgarh in Haryana under the guise of the alleged Love Jihad, preparations are being made to make laws in many states. Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka have announced legislation in this regard. Its purpose is to stop the incidents of marriage by greed, pressure, intimidation, or bluff of marriage.
Earlier, CM Yogi Adityanath had agreed to the Allahabad High Court's decision. Which said that conversion to mere marriage would be illegal. The state government will bring a law with strict provisions in this regard. Then those who do such actions will only have 'Ram Naam Satya'.
Muslim Women's Personal Law Board not happy with it:
Chairman of All India Muslim Women's Personal Law Board and social activist Shaista Amber. He has expressed strong displeasure over the statement that the Love Jihad law will be enacted. He called the Love Jihad Law against the original soul of the Constitution.
In a statement, Shaista Amber said that it is the duty of all citizens and governments to protect the limits of politics and the Constitution of India and the protection of Indian culture and the security of the country. What does the government want to prove by making Love Jihad law?
He said that if the leader and the rest of the people in our country marry in other religions, would that be considered as love jihad? Ambar said that bringing the Love Jihad law in the name of any religion is against the fundamental soul of the Constitution, as well as a major attack on the common culture of the country, which is condemnable.
