Yogi Adityanath

New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday issued a stern warning to those who conspire to befool young, innocent women under ‘love jihad’ and said that that state government is also working out a strict law to curb such incidents.

Referring to Allahabad High Court order, which said religious conversion is not necessary for marriage, CM Yogi said, “I warn those who conceal identity and play with the respect of our sisters. If you don’t mend your ways, your ‘Ram naam satya’ journey will begin.”

“Allahabad High Court said religious conversion isn’t necessary for marriage. Govt will also work to curb ‘Love-Jihad’, we’ll make a law. I warn those who conceal identity & play with our sisters’ respect, if you don’t mend your ways your ‘Ram naam satya’ journey will begin, said UP CM Yogi Adityanath.

UP CM made the announcement while addressing an election for upcoming by-polls in the state. 7 assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh are set to go to polls on November 3 and the results would be declared on November 10.

Love Jihad is a term coined by Hindu groups, which describe it as a conspiracy by Muslim men to trick Hindu girls to convert to Islam and marry.

Allahabad HC order on religious conversion & marriage

The Allahabad High Court on Friday held that conversion of religion just for the purpose of marriage is not legal.

Dismissing a petition filed by a married couple seeking direction to their families to not interfere in their married life, Allahabad High Court observed that conversion “just for the purpose of marriage” is unacceptable.

The court made the comments after finding that a Muslim woman had converted to Hinduism, and a month later married as per Hindu rituals.

The wife had accepted the Hindu religion on June 29, 2020, and married the man on July 31.
