Listen to the news

Indresh Kumar, a senior leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), supported the Karnataka government’s proposal to bring in legislation against forced conversions, saying conversion creates conflict in the community and threatens the unity and integrity of the country.

Kumar, founder and main patron of the Muslim National Munch of the RSS, also supported the state government’s plan to bring in legislation to ban love jihad. The BJP government in Karnataka is likely to introduce an anti-conversion bill in the ongoing winter session of the state legislature. The proposed law is expected to contain punitive provisions. It may also insist that those who want to convert to any other religion must apply to the Deputy Commissioner two months in advance.

Also, a person who wants to change religion may lose the facilities or benefits associated with it, including his or her original religion and reservation. However he is likely to reap the benefits of whatever religion he converts to. Asked if such a law was necessary, the RSS leader said, “It is a love jihad if anyone hides his identity (religion), marries a girl on the pretext of love, marries her and then commits violence and cruelty against her.”

‘Love jihad’ is the enemy of human relations. The law must be enacted if it is not standard for people to commit such inhumane acts. On December 13, Karnataka Energy Minister V Sunil Kumar said that a law banning love jihad would also be introduced in the coming days.
