The activists of a Hindu outfit ‘Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha’ have demanded effective law to check the cases of love-jihad. They had gathered at the collectorate on Saturday and also submitted a memorandum addressed to the chief minister.
While allegedly justifying the brutal killing of a migrant labourer Mohammad Afrazul who was hacked and then burnt in Rajasthan a couple of days back, the recently appointed national spokesperson of the Mahasabha Ajju Chauhan said that such reaction could be expected from a person who has lost his daughter or sister because of love-jihad. The victim was killed by one Shambhulal Raigar on allegations of ‘love-jihad’ and the gruesome video had gone viral.
“There is need for effective law against ‘love-jihad’. Although the anti-Romeo squad had brought down such cases, they still continue to happen. The incident like the one in Rajasthan should not happen, but such action is very likely from a person in a fit of rage,” said Chauhan.
“We have demanded the chief minister to bring up an effective law to check the incidents. National president of the Mahasabha Rakesh Limaye has prepared a draft to permanently stop the cases of love-jihad,” said Chauhan.
“The couples from different faiths who intend to marry should be required to submit joint application before the DM or SDM and this should accompany the affidavit of parents so that it can work as ‘no objection certificate’. The authenticity of this affidavit should be verified to ensure if it is not given under pressure or threat,” said Chauhan in the memorandum submitted on Saturday.
“In case the affidavit is found to be fake, it should be quashed and security be granted to parents besides action taken against the guilty,” said Chauhan.
Known for making controversial statements, Ajju Chauhan had recently given a call for promoting marriages of Hindu boys to well educated Muslim girls ‘as answer to love-jihad’.
