New Delhi: The BJP government of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh has introduced laws to stop the alleged love jihad. Meanwhile, the central government has said in the Lok Sabha that there is no plan to bring a nationwide anti-conversion law.
In the Lok Sabha, the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, G Kishan Reddy, said in a written reply that the issues related to conversion are the subject of the state governments and the agencies take action if the law is violated.
He said, “There is no plan to bring a nationwide anti-conversion law to curb inter-religious marriages.”
