Lucknow, Aug 25: Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday took a jibe at Mathura MP Hema Malini on the issue of'love jihad' (affairs involving Muslim boys and Hindu girls).

The issue was raised in Uttar Pradesh by the BJP, and ever since, the controversy has remained.

Yadav took a dig at Hema saying she never had qualms about acting in movies which showed such relationships, reported media.

Replying to queries on issue of "love jihad" raised by BJP in its Uttar Pradesh executive meet, Akhilesh said, "You hear the song of BJP MP's film 'Dharmatma'. Will it promote love or not. The film showed the son of a Hindu gang-lord falling in love with a Muslim girl played by Hema.
