‘ SE­NIORS FROM BOTH RE­LI­GIONS SHOULD DIS­CUSS LOVE JI­HAD’

-

Bhopal, Sept. 1: Se­nior BJP leader and Union min­is­ter Uma Bharti Mon­day said that re­li­gious lead­ers from both Hin­duism and Is­lam should dis­cuss the is­sue of al­leged “love ji­had”.

“I don’t want to make any di­rect com­ment on the is­sue, but re­li­gious heads and se­niors of both re­li­gions should sit to­gether to take some decision on the mat­ter,” she said, speak­ing to re­porters at her res­i­dence here, when asked about the is­sue.

“It should be re­viewed if such things are hap­pen­ing or not. But it has to be ex­am­ined as num­ber of such cases were re­ported. It must be en­sured that so­cial har­mony does not get dis­turbed,” she said.

Re­fer­ring to re­ports in a sec­tion of me­dia that two cases of mur­der were pend­ing against her, Ms Bharti said the re­ports were base­less. All the cases against her were po­lit­i­cal, such as those re­lated to Ay­o­d­hya move­ment.
