In central India’s Madhya Pradesh state, lawmakers have approved a bill to curb religious conversion, which lawmakers say is aimed at curbing interfaith marriage.
“The bill carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and up to 100,000 Indian rupees [$1,358] Evidence is available to the accused and their organizations; It includes those accused and their associates, including organizations, ”said Home Minister Narottam Mishra.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. No marriage is annulled under the new legal law. It will be canceled, ”an official statement said later.
India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, passed a similar law almost a month after the Madhya Pradesh government took office. Both states are ruled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The BJP’s prime minister in Uttar Pradesh is 48-year-old Hindu monk Yogi Adityanath, who is known for his harsh criticism of Muslims.
‘Love Jihad’ Laws
The term “jihadist love” is used by the Hindu right-wing group to refer to a failed conspiracy that deceives Hindu brides into converting to Islam.
Breaking the law written in vague words is not difficult. Dozens of Muslim men were arrested in a matter of weeks, despite interfaith marriages in the Hindu-majority country.
Love Love jihad is an ancestral rule that has always wanted to control women’s sexuality and freedom.
A Muslim teenager was arrested on Friday in Bijnor district, Uttar Pradesh, the father of her 16-year-old classmate. :
Earlier this month, on their way back from a friend’s birthday party, a boy and a girl took the attack to a local police station.
A Muslim boy has been charged with kidnapping under anti-change laws. He was charged under the Sexual Offenses Act 2012.
Laws passed by the two BJP-ruled states further pacify India’s nearly 200 million Muslim minorities and defenders of the country’s traditions. The Hindu National Party (MNP) came to power in 2014 and returned with a larger majority last year.
The Hindu hegemony, the BJP’s Hindutva goal, has no greater evidence than the large, economically backward state of Uttar Pradesh, which has a population of 200 million.
Although there is no evidence of a collective effort to convert Hindu women to Islam and gain Muslim influence, Adihanath’s government has pledged to justify jihadist love in accordance with the new law on conspiracy theories in Hindu circles.
The bride’s relatives can file a complaint with the police. Men can be arrested with a slight suspicion; Activists say they are forcing women to sue.
Muslim boys sometimes pretended to be Hindus, and women were abducted on both sides.
But right-wing Hindus say the men are not the only ones backed by India’s Muslim-majority neighbor Pakistan.
Real faith in the “jihad of love” is “a ridiculous thought if it is not safe,” said human rights activist Harsh Mander. “We testify that all constitutional commitments have been completely broken,” he said. ”
The woman had a miscarriage
A few weeks ago Muskan, 22, and her Muslim husband Rashid were jailed when they went to register their marriage in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh.
She was three months pregnant and had a miscarriage.
“They know I’m pregnant,” she said. I clean the room. I’m still pushing my stomach, ”said Muskan, who goes by the Hindu name Pinky. I know I’m losing my baby.
The couple’s “crime” is a violation of the law against change. He was sentenced to another 10 years in prison.
We have seen firsthand that all constitutional promises have been broken.
Muskan is still receiving medical treatment after her mother-in-law returns. She intends to stay with Rashid. He and his brother were imprisoned two weeks before Muscan released him under pressure from Muscan.
“I love Muskan with confidence. I know she will not declare our love,” he told AFP. “I only found out about my baby when I went out. “
Muslims give wisdom to our girls
Other BJP-ruled states want legislation similar to those approved by the Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh governments.
The government and the police are branded Hindus by the police chiefs. The most prominent is the Bajrang Dal, which is estimated to have more than 5 million young people across the country.
He has been repeatedly accused of sectarian violence, also known as “Muslims” and “low caste Hindus” who are accused of hating couples on Valentine’s Day and killing sacred cows in Hinduism.
“Love jihad is a reality. This is a strategy used by Muslim boys to attract Hindu girls, ”Ramji Tiwari, head of the Bajrang Dal in Kanpur, told AFP.
One day, Muslims outnumbered Hindus. In India, “capturing and educating our girls” has six times the number of Muslims in India.
Now Bajrang Dal goes from house to house doing intellectual campaigns and saying, “We should be wary of people who speak fluently to our mothers and sisters.”
Activists say the BJP’s new anti-jihad movement is an attempt to keep women free to choose who to marry and to remain in their “traditional” roles.
Lawyer and human rights activist Vrinda Grover told AFP: “Women are the patriarchs who always wanted to control sexuality and freedom. It is a dirty trinity of tribes and dominant religions.
