K’taka to bring law to ban religious conversions for marriage: C T Ravi

Bengaluru: BJP national general secretary C T Ravi on Tuesday, announced that Karnataka will take a cue from the Allahabad High Court and “enact a law banning religious conversions for the sake of marriage”.

In a tweet posted on Tuesday, Ravi wrote, “…We will not remain silent when Jihadis strip the dignity of Our Sisters. Any one involved in the act of conversion shall face severe & swift punishment.”

The development comes after Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, both BJP-ruled states, announced their intention to introduce legislation to deal with cases of “love jihad”. It can be recalled that a few days ago, the Allahabad HC held that religious conversion for the purpose of marriage was illegal, while dismissing a plea filed by a newly married couple asking it to direct the police and the woman’s father not to disturb their marital life.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Home Minister Anil Vij on Sunday, announced that the state government was contemplating “legal provisions” against “love jihad”. The development came after the murder of a 20-year-old woman in Faridabad recently.

In the previous week, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that his government will frame a law to deal with “love jihad”.
