'Conversion for marriage wrong': Rajnath on 'love jihad' laws

Dec 30, 2020 12:32 IST

Amid row over several BJP states bringing in anti-conversion laws, defence minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said that he does not support conversion for marriage and questioned why it should be required. In an interview to ANI, Singh said that the practice of mass conversions should stop. "As far as I know, in the Muslim religion, one cannot marry someone from another religion. I personally do not approve of conversion for marriage," he added. The minister said there is a difference between "natural marriage" and forcible religious conversion for marriage. The MP from Lucknow was questioned about the alleged misuse of the anti-conversion law enacted by the UP government to stop forcible religious conversions and so-called "love jihad".
