by Arya Manoharan

Jaipur : On Friday, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot slammed the ruling BJP over ‘love jihad’. Mr. Gehlot’s comments comes as more BJP ruled states announce plans for ‘love jihad’. He accused
the ruling party for violating the Constitution and citizens personal liberty in choice of marital partners. He even accused the Centre and tweeted that “Love jihad is a word manufactured by the BJP to divide
the nation and disturb communal harmony. Marriage is a matter of personal liberty… bringing a law to curb it is completely unconstitutional and will not stand in any court of law. ‘Jihad’ has no place in love,” Also he added that “They are creating an environment in the nation where consenting adults would be at the mercy of state power. Marriage is a personal decision and they are putting curbs on it, which is like snatching away personal liberty,” Shortly afterwards Union Minsiter Gajendra Singh Shekhawat hit back at Gehlot and said ” Dear Ashokji, Love Jihad is a trap that has thousands of young women believing the marriage is a personal affair. where later it turns out it isn’t. Also, if it is a matter of personal liberty, then why are the women not free to keep their maiden name or religion?” Shekhawat also added that “Ashokji, manufacturing terms, riots and hatred is a Congress prerogative. The BJP has believed in Sabka Vikas hence will ensure our women folk are not subject to injustice of any kind,”
