Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Clears Ordinance Against ‘Love jihad’

Mumbai: The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday approved an executive order for the conversion to marriage, which BJP leaders refer to as “love jihad”.

The move comes immediately after the Allahabad High Court, which upheld the right to freedom of choice of individuals and rescinded its own order, stating that conversion to translations of marriages was not acceptable.

The executive order from the state cabinet comes less than a month after Chief Minister Adityanath cited the Allahabad High Court order on conversion to marriage to raising the issue of “love jihad”.

In the state cabinet meeting, the state government passed the ordinance, stating that more than 100 cases were investigated before the ordinance was introduced.

According to the update, the law mandates imprisonment between one and five years for those guilty of forcibly conversing for marriage.
