Muslim men arrested in India under Love-Jihad Law


New Delhi, 7th December: Police in Northern India arrest men under new Love-Jihad Law.

Baaghi TV: According to reports, police said on Monday that they arrested 10 men in northern India for allegedly compelling women to change their religion after getting married, using a new anti-conversion law called the “Love-Jihad” law.

Last month, Uttar Pradesh state became the first Indian province to pass a law against forged or fraudulent religious conversions. They laid out prison terms for anyone forcing others to convert their faith or luring them into these conversions through marriage.

Officials in Uttar Pradesh said the law will help prevent fraudulent religious conversions and was designed to protect young women.

The federal government and the Uttar Pradesh government are both controlled by the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

According to reports from Dawn News, four senior police officials said 10 men were arrested last week from different parts of Uttar Pradesh based on separate criminal complaints lodged by parents who alleged their daughters were abducted by Muslim men.

One official who reported on the condition of anonymity said, “We are using the new law to only arrest those men where we have proof to show it is a clear case of forced religious conversion.”

Under the new law, a man and woman belonging to different religions will have to give two months’ notice to the district magistrate before they get married and if there are no objections only then they will be given permission.

Meanwhile, four other Indian states, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Karnataka and Assam are also planning to bring in similar anti-conversion laws.
