Love is not crime: Rajasthan cops tweets after law to tackle honour killing passed

Tweeting a still from Bollywood cult 'Mughal-e-Azam', the state police department said, "Jab pyar kiya to darna kya, kyoki ab Rajasthan sarkar ka kanoon hai honour killing ke khilaf" (why fear if in love, because now Rajasthan government has a law against honour killing).

Within hours, the tweet went viral with netizens hailing the government move to tackle killings of men and women if they marry outside caste in the name of family honour. B L Soni, the additional director general of CID (Crime Branch), said the social media campaign was for creating awareness about the government's legislation against honour killings.
