Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra today said the state government would soon bring in a law to counter the problem of “Love Jihad”, weeks after the Karnataka and Haryana governments said they were considering legislation against the same.
Mr Mishra said a bill may be brought in in the next assembly session to tackle Love Jihad, adding that there will be a provision of five years rigorous imprisonment in it.
“Cases will be registered under non-bailable sections…The collaborator will also be the culprit like the main accused. For voluntary conversion for marriage, it will be mandatory to apply to the collector a month in advance,” Narottam Mishra said.
Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, on November 6, said he was keen on an early decision on bringing a law against religious conversion in the name of “love jihad”.
