UP governor okays ordinance against forced conversion

Nov 28, 2020 14:38 IST

Uttar Pradesh governor Anandiben Patel on Saturday gave assent to the Yogi government's ordinance against forcible or "dishonest" religious conversions. The UP govt had earlier this week approved the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020. Amid the so-called 'love jihad' row, the govt has said that the ordinance will curb forcible or "dishonest" religious conversions, including those for the sake of marriage. The ordinance provides for jail upto 10 years for forced conversion for marriage.
