Love jihad a reality, interfaith marriages its proof: Acharya Dharmendra
: Claiming that “sexual attraction” alone “cannot be the basis” for inter-faith marriage,” a senior VHP leader Tuesday said that concerted efforts were being made to convert Hindu women to Islam. Acharya Dharmendra claimed that “love jihad” was being carried out in the form of inter-faith marriages, instances of which have come to light in the recent past. “A person should have faith in the religion he or she chooses to follow. Sexual attraction cannot be the basis for inter–faith marriage,” Acharya said addressing media here. He also voiced support for the state government’s efforts to bring a law to prevent religious conversions.
