Karnataka follows UP and Haryana in the case of "love Jihad"

A week after Mr. Yogi Adityanath and Mr. Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Ministers of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana respectively, were decisive regarding their states to pass a law over the forceful religion conversion, it is now Karnataka that follows them in line with the issue of "love jihad". Mr. B.S. Yediyurappa, the revered Chief Minister of Karnataka, sounded quite decisive in taking strict actions to put an end to forceful religious conversion in the name of "Love Jihad".

Further, the Chief Minister also remarked, "Young girls of the state are being lured in the name of Love and money and are being converted to other religions, we have considered it seriously. After a thorough review, we will take a strong measure. " He further stated how there is an increment in the cases of "love jihad" in Karnataka as per the recent reports. On this note, he assured the inhabitants of the hinterlands of Karnataka that this alarming issue will be put an end to, irrespective of whether the other states are taking any measures.

As a counter argument, the former Chief Minister and leader of the opposing party, Siddaramaiah slapped the method as one totally against the Constitution of India. He blamed it to be a ploy of the ruling party and the court of law that shall bring utter disgrace to the values that the Constitution of India lives up to.
