UP’s illegal conversion law: Extreme right organisations require cases on

[h3] [/h3] [h3] [/h3] LUCKNOW: With the illegal conversion law coming into effect in UP, extreme right organisations have been on the prowl assiduously searching for intercaste marital relationships and foisting cases through parents/relatives who have actually not been in favour of such marriages/relationships. Take the case of a 24-year old Hindu woman who has a live-in relationship with a Muslim boy for 4 months and has rejected that there was any force or talks of conversion. Regardless of that, the RSS-affiliated Bajrang Dal on Thursday convinced her parents to file a case of kidnapping and kidnapping for marriage rather versus the young boy even though the parents had refrained from pushing any charges earlier.A pursuit to sniff out cases of ‘Love Jihad’ by Hindu Extreme right attire and book offending Muslim youths under UP’s unlawful conversion law is casting a long shadow on Hindu-Muslim intercaste relationships/marriages—- even those which have actually been existing with authorization for a while.”The parents of the woman informed us that they had chosen to cut off all ties with the lady months back after they had come to know about the lady’s move to start dealing with a Muslim kid in Meerut. It wants Hindu outfits got active in Meerut and spoke to them that they signed up a grievance in Bareilly,” SHO of Kankerkheda in Meerut, Tapeshwar Sagar told ET. The Bajrang Dal had actually informed the authorities on December 8 about the couple after which it had actually chosen to investigate.Based on the woman’s statement that no talk of conversion had happened, a case was not signed up under the ‘Restriction of Unlawful Religious Conversion Regulation’. However charges under Area 363 and 366 of the IPC that deal with kidnapping and causing female to force her marriage have actually been submitted. The couple told the police that they have a marital relationship application pending in the Arya Samaj Mandir in Ghaziabad. However, they might not produce any document to show the same, the authorities said.”The lady is a post-graduate and she was even informing us on her right to individual liberty to live with whomsoever she wants,” Sagar added. Bareilly police sent both the lady and boy to Bareilly on Friday. SP of Bareilly, Ravindra Kumar, validated the development.This is not the first case because the law has actually come into existence that intervention by a Hindu attire has resulted in a formal complaint by unconsenting parents versus their daughter’s inter-religious partner.Last week, in Moradabad, 2 Muslim youth—- Rashid and Salim—- were arrested after the mother of a 22-year old Hindu girl, stated that her child married Rashid according to Islamic routines. She lodged a problem alleging forced conversion by the bros. In this case too, the girl kept repeating that she was a significant and could truly get wed to anybody she wished to, even as a video of Bajrang Dal employees heckling her went viral.Last week, post the intervention of the Hindu Yuva Vahini and Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, the wedding event of a Hindu woman and a Muslim kid was cancelled on the D-day with the cops asking them to take the consent of the district magistrate first. In this case, the wedding event even had the blessings of the moms and dads and the rituals (both Hindu and Muslim) were only symbolic, including no conversion.”The law is meant to strengthen the BJP’s communal politics and is a violation of our fundamental rights, gave produce problems for progressive people. We will certainly take it up in the house and oppose it,” Udayveer, Samajwadi Celebration MLC told ET.
