Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday said that successive governments in Kerala have failed to act against “love jihad”.
Inaugurating the BJP Vijay Yatra, a pre-poll yatra led by state party president K Surendran, in Kasaragod, Adityanath said, “Governments led by CPI (M) and Congress do not take any action to solve issues of the people. In 2009, the High Court had stated that love jihad was a conspiracy to convert Kerala into an Islamic state. Successive governments have not only failed to take steps to curb religious conversion but have even adopted a pro-conversion stand. But the UP government has enacted a law against love jihad. BJP is ruling for national security as well as ensuring welfare of every citizen.”
