UP Government’s War Against ‘Love Jihad’ Will Curb Rising Religious Conversions
The UP government will be formulating an ordinance to probe inter-faith marriages and put a stop to forced religious conversions in the future
The Uttar Pradesh government has declared a war on ‘Love Jihad’ to keep a close eye on forceful religious conversions in the name of love and companionship in couples. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked his administration to formulate an ordinance to bar conversions in the future. According to high-placed sources, this will be implemented in the view of increasing and often coerced conversions of men and women, when they marry outside of their faith.
In UP’s metropolis city Kanpur, a nine-member Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been formed by the Police to probe inter-faith matrimonies. Adityanath has even gone on to claim publicly that Love-Jihad is an organized phenomenon and even internationally funded.
The Kanpur police is investigating the case of a Muslim man who had changed his religious identity to a Hindu in order to rent a space. He allegedly forged a relationship with his landlord’s daughter under a fake name.
