Love Jihad controversy erupts in Kerala; BJP state President calls it a serious issue

The love jihad debate has once again come back to the limelight and this time from the state of Kerala. Ahead of the elections in the state, the BJP state president has made it clear that if they come to power, NDA will enact a law against Love Jihad. BJP has highlighted the events of illegal and forceful conversions in the state. The opposition, however, has slammed the move and called it an attempt to polarize. NCP leader Majeed Memon stated that Kerala is one of the most literate states and the people there believe in secularism and the move will not woo the voters in Kerala. However, BJP state President K Surendran stated that the Love jihad is a serious issue and apart from Hindu organizations, the Christians are also demanding for the same law.
