0 2
In the case of Love Jihad law in UP and Uttarakhand, a hearing was held in the Supreme Court on Wednesday. During this time, the Supreme Court accepted the petitions and issued notice to both the state governments and sought answers in this matter. In UP, it is just an ordinance, while in Uttarakhand it has become law in 2018.

Under the Love Jihad Act in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, if a person forces someone to change religion by luring, straying or intimidating, then he can be sentenced to five years. But some social workers and organizations have challenged it in the Supreme Court.

They say that through this law, the police and the government are harassing the loving people and those who marry without the consent of their parents. Also, there is an allegation that only minorities are being targeted through this.

During the hearing, the petitioners demanded the Supreme Court to stop the provisions of Love Jihad. The Supreme Court refused to ban it.
