Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - - Htrajasthan -

: 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.
