Senior BJP leader and Assam minister Himant Biswa Sarma said on Sunday that if his party came to power after the 2021 assembly elections, the state government would launch a “tough fight” against “love jihad”.
Assembly elections are proposed in March-April next year. At a meeting of the BJP Mahila Morcha in Dibrugarh, she said, “We have to start a new and fierce battle against love jihad on the land of Assam. If the BJP comes to power again, we will decide that if any boy hides his religious identity and makes any negative remarks on the daughters and women of Assam, he will be severely punished.
He said, “Love jihad has created a big problem for the daughters of Assam like huge mountain. Many girls got divorced because the boys cheated on them by giving them their wrong names. “
