AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday targeted BJP-ruled states, saying they are making a mockery of the Constitution by making laws on ‘Love Jihad’, a term used to describe religious conversion on the pretext of marriage. He said if the BJP governments wanted to make laws, they should make a law for MSP and not ‘Love Jihad’.

“There is no definition of Love Jihad anywhere in the Constitution. The BJP-ruled states are making a mockery of the Constitution through Love Jihad laws…If BJP governed states want to make a law, then they should make a law for MSP and employment,” Owaisi was quoted as saying by ANI.

He further said that the courts have reiterated that under the constitution of India, under Article 21, 14 and 25, no government has any role to play in the personal life of any Indian citizen. “The BJP is clearly indulging in violating fundamental rights of the Constitution,” Owaisi said.

This comes on a day another BJP-ruled state, Madhya Pradesh, cleared an Ordinance against religious conversion through fraudulent means, including those for the purpose of marriage. The Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Bill-2020 has a provision of Rs 1 lakh fine for conversion through marriage or by any other forceful means.
