Law against “love jihad” likely in next legislature session says Kateel

Vijayapura: The BJP’s Karnataka unit chief Nalin Kumar Kateel said on Wednesday the Yediyurappa government might introduce a law against “love jihad” in the next assembly session.

“There is love jihad going on in the State. I am confident that in the next session our government will bring a law to control love jihad in the State,” Kateel said after inaugurating the BJP State unit meet at the Kittur Rani Chennamma community building.

In the recent past, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, both ruled by the BJP, have brought religious freedom laws to stop conversion through marriage or by any other fraudulent means.

“Love Jihad” is a term used to refer to the alleged campaign of Muslim extremists forcing Hindu girls to convert in the guise of love.

Kateel said the state government has already fulfilled the long pending demand of ban on cow slaughter by bringing in a law in the previous legislature session.

Speaking about the administration of the BJP government in Karnataka, Kateel said Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has been striving hard to mop up more revenue.

The BJP government has made the State drug-free, he said and alleged that the previous Congress government ran on ”drug money.”

“When the Congress government was ruling the State, they ran the administration using ”drug money,” whereas the Yediyurappa government made Karnataka drug-free,” Kateel told the gathering.
