Gujarat to bring law against 'love jihad', says CM Rupani



Gujrat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, on Sunday, announced that the government will soon bring a strict law against 'Love Jihad' in the state.

"We are going to bring a law against love jihad in the Assembly. Such activities being done in the name of love jihad will not be tolerated...The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government will bring strict laws against love jihad in the coming days," he said.

In the recent past, both Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh have brought religious freedom laws to stop conversion through marriage or by any other fraudulent means.

"In the past Assembly sessions, our government had come up with stringent laws. We have made an Act against Gundas. To ensure that such elements do not cause trouble to the common man and get strict punishment of 10 years. We also came up with the Land Grabbing (Prohibition) Act so that people do not enter others' land and take over others' property using bogus documents. We brought this law with a provision of 14 years of punishment," he said. (PTI)
