’s order that conversion only for marriage was unacceptable, said on Saturday that his government would bring a strict law to stop “love jihad”.
Addressing public meetings in Malhani and Deoria on Saturday ahead of the bypolls on November 3, Yogi said, “We will stop love jihad by framing a stringent law. Jo log naam aur swaroop chhupa kar, chhadm tareeke se behan betiyon ki izzat se khilwaad karte hain, unko pehle se chetaawani. Sudhrenge nahi to Ram Naam Satya ki yatra nikalne wali hai (It’s a warning to those who exploit women by using false names and identities that they should stop this, otherwise their final journey will start),” Yogi warned.
“The posters of those involved in love jihad will be put on all road crossings,” Adityanath said, sending out a warning against interfaith marriages in both his speeches.
