Kumar also said that they met on a dating site and eloped from their homes in Maharashtra to Delhi, naturally with the promise that he would marry her. We will do all that is possible and will ask the police to act in a swift manner and probe all angles including that of Love Jihad. Kumar hoped that capital punishment would be awarded in this case.

If the matter is not dealt with speedily the trial will go on for 10 years and this incident will fade away from public memory. We hope the police will file the challan son and the matter would be decided by a fast track court, Kumar further added.

Kumar also said that two years back in Faridabad they had pressed for the enactment of central laws to look into forcible conversions and Love Jihad.

What is Love Jihad:

The issue of Love Jihad first cropped up in the southern states of Kerala and Karnataka. It is alleged that Hindu and Christian girls are lured by Muslim youth under the pretext of marriage. They are then forcibly converted to Islam.

In November 2020, Uttar Pradesh registered its first case of Love Jihad in Bareilly district. The case was registered following a complaint by the parents of a girl residing in the Deorania police station limits. The parents alleged that the a Muslim youth who also hailed rom the same village had been trying to force the girl to convert and marry him.
