A new fight has been started against love Jihad in Asam. Hemant Biswa Sharma, Finance minister of Asam quoted the statement that the marriage has to take place without deception.
Further he added, it is our duty to protect our daughters and sisters from being tricked into an inter-faith relationship. We will fight against any such marriage which has been or had been solemnised on the basis of forgery, Sarma further pointed out.
The BJP-led government in Assam has decided to crack down on the “emerging trend of marriages by deception”, usually involving a prospective groomsy lying about his religion to marry a Hindu girl, finance & health minister Himant Biswa Sarma said on Wednesday.
In Assam,it has been seen that many Muslim boys create fake Facebook accounts with Hindu names and post pictures of themselves at Temples. A girl gets married to one such boy, only to discover later that he is not from the same religion. This is a not a bona fide marriage – not genuine or true Sarma said. He also clarified that the govt was not against marriage outside one’s religion as long it is without deception.the minister said the idea was to protect “our daughters and sisters” from being tricked into an inter-faith relationship.
