Those involved in ‘love jihad’ will be destroyed, says MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan ahead of passage of law
‘There is no discrimination but if someone tries to do anything disgusting with our daughters, then I’ll break you’, he was quoted as saying even as MP prepares to pass a law against “love jihad”
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday issued a warning to those who are involved in "love jihad", saying he will “break” anyone who tries to do “anything disgusting with our daughters” even as the state prepares to pass a law against it.
"Government belongs to everyone, all religions and castes. There is no discrimination but if someone tries to do anything disgusting with our daughters, then I'll break you. If someone plots religious conversion or does anything like 'love jihad', you will be destroyed," Chouhan was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Madhya Pradesh has already drawn up a draft bill to punish "love jihad", proposing a 10-year jail term for people marrying with the aim of religious conversion.
The religious clerics solemnizing such a marriage would have to face a jail term of five years, state minister Narottam Mishra told reporters after chairing a meeting where the draft of the ‘Dharma Swatantrata Bill 2020’ was finalised.
