UP Governor Okays Invoice Against Forced Conversions Amid “Love Jihad” Row

Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel on Saturday gave assent to an ordinance towards forcible or “dishonest” religious conversions, an official stated.

The Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020 has been issued with the approval of the Governor, the official stated.

The state cabinet presided over by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had earlier this week approved the draft ordinance to curb forcible or “dishonest” religious conversions including these for the sake of marriage, which might land violators in jail for as much as 10 years.

In keeping with it, a marriage can be declared “null and void” if the conversion of a lady is solely for that objective, and those wishing to vary their faith after marriage want to use to the district magistrate.

In the latest weeks, BJP-run states like Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh have revealed plans to enact legal guidelines to counter alleged attempts to convert Hindu women to Islam within the guise of marriage, which celebration leaders typically refer to as ‘love jihad’.
