Yogi government to introduce law against Love Jihad

Issuing a stern warning to miscreants indulging in love jihad, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that he would be enacting a law to curb love jihad. “Allahabad HC said religious conversion isn’t necessary for marriage. Govt will also work to curb ‘Love-Jihad’, we’ll make a law. I warn those who conceal identity & play with our sisters’ respect, if you don’t mend your ways your ‘Ram Naam satya’ journey will begin,” he said.

Ballabhgarh love jihad

A CCTV footage had shown how two assailants had shot the 21-year-old student in broad daylight outside the Aggarwal college in Ballabgarh, Faridabad. The footage that went viral on social media, the assailant could be seen stepping out of a car and pulling out a revolver. Nikita is seen struggling to escape and manages to flee for a brief moment before the accused grabs her again. During the whole struggle the accused shoots her at the point-blank range. She was rushed to nearby hospital where she was declared dead.

Nikita’s family had alleged that the accused Tauseef and well his mother forced her to convert to Islam. In 2018, Tauseef had reportedly abducted Nikita after which an FIR was filed. However, the matter was resolved through a panchayat.

Tauseef who was nabbed by police was sent to 14-day judicial custody on October 30 after he confessed his crime. Tauseef comes from an influential family of politicians belonging to Congress party. He had requested to the court through his counsel to be shifted to Bhondsi jail in Gurugram from the local district jail in which he is currently lodged citing safety concerns. His plea was declined by the court.
