Anyone who plots ‘Love Jihad’ will be destroyed: MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: In a warning against ‘Love Jihad‘, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said that anyone who plots religious conversion, will be destroyed.
The warning comes as Madhya Pradesh has revealed plans to enact laws to counter alleged attempts to convert Hindu women to Islam in the guise of marriage.
“Government belongs to everyone – all religions and castes. There is no discrimination but if someone tries to do anything disgusting with our daughters, then I’ll break you. If someone plots religious conversion or does anything like ‘Love Jihad’, you will be destroyed”, said Shivraj in MP’s Sehore district.
Earlier, state home minister Narottam Mishra had informed about the MP government’s decision to bring a bill to make a law against ‘love jihad’, in the next assembly session.
A jail term of 10 years has also been proposed by the MP government for anyone found guilty of using marriage to force someone to change religion.
The announcement was made by Mishra a day after the Uttar Pradesh government approved a draft ordinance to curb forcible or ‘dishonest’ religious conversions including those for the sake of marriage, which could land violators in jail for up to 10 years.
In recent weeks, BJP-run states like Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh have revealed plans to enact laws to counter alleged attempts to convert Hindu women to Islam in the guise of marriage, which party leaders often refer to as love jihad.
