In the backdrop of demands for an anti-conversion law to prevent ‘love jihad’, the Maharashtra government on Tuesday indicated it will soon bring in a law to prevent cases ‘where woman are trapped’ into marriages. The state is studying laws in other states and may soon bring in a law to prevent such incidents. ET was the first to report on November 16 that the BJP was keen on bringing a law to ban conversions.

“The government is not against interfaith marriages, however, there has a conspiracy in some districts and such marriages have taken place. In a year or two of marriage, the girl is harassed. We are seeing such incidents happening in a big way,” said Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday in the Assembly in Nagpur.

Fadnavis was replying to BJP MLA Atul Bhatkalkar who raised the Shraddha Walkar murder by her live-in partner Aftab Poonawala and said the government should think of enacting a law against ‘Love jihad’.

In his reply Fadnavis stated, “Certain states have enacted a law against ‘Love Jihad’. I want to tell this Assembly that the issue first came up in Kerala and the state police gave this name when a communist government was in power. Hence, this is not about going against a particular religion We have to accept the fact that such kinds of cases are happening,”said Fadnavis.

He added,”Hence the state government has taken a decision that whichever states have made such laws. We are studying the law so that we could put some effective amendments or a law; the state is keen on doing this. Under any circumstances as part of a conspiracy any female should not be fooled and that is our opinion. We would study the laws of other states and if it is effective then the state would definitely make such a law.”

ET had on November 16 reported of how BJP leaders had begun speaking on the issue of ‘Love Jihad’ and had made public demands that the state make such laws, the demand had gathered steam after the Shraddha Walkar murder case.
