The Manohar Lal Khattar government of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled Haryana is about to introduce a new ‘Love Jihad’ bill in the Assembly to stop the forced conversion in the state, but the leader of the government’s main ally Jananayak Janata Party (JJP) and the state’s Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala has objected to the word ‘love jihad’. Chautala told NewsBust that he does not agree with the term ‘love jihad’, which has been used by right-wing Muslim men for the forced conversion of Hindu women.
The Deputy Chief Minister said, “I do not agree with the term ‘love jihad’. We will find a law specifically to investigate forced conversions and we will support it. If someone voluntarily converts or any other If one converts to marry a partner of religion, then there is no restriction on it. “
Dushyant Chautala’s remarks come at a time when Jananayak Janata Party and Dushyant Chautala are already unhappy with BJP’s stand on the issue of farmer agitation. Chautala has supported the demands of the farmers and has demanded a review of the three agricultural laws.
