Akhilesh Yadav slams BJP over 'love jihad' controversy
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the 'Love Jihad' controversy.
Questioning the relevance of the topic to be discussed in the Uttar Pradesh BJP state executive body meeting, Yadav said, "Have you listened to the songs of the movie Dharmatma, that this BJP MLA has worked in? 'Jis film ke gaane aise honge, wahan Mohabbat badhegi ya rukegi? (If the songs of this film are thus, then will love spread or stop?)"
According to reports, issues of 'love jihad' and conversion of Hindus have been included in the BJP's two-day meeting in Uttar Pradesh after a Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) outfit called Dharma Jagran Manch called for a front against ' love jihad', which refers to Muslim men marrying Hindu girls and allegedly making them convert to Islam.
