‘Love & jihad don't go hand-in-hand’: TMC MP Nusrat Jahan slams BJP

Trinamool Congress’ Lok Sabha MP Nusrat Jahan has spoken on the ‘Love-Jihad’ law that has been proposed by some BJP ruled states.

‘Love is personal.

Love and jihad can't go hand in hand.

Who I love is personal and no one can have a say in that,’ The TMC MP said.

Jahan, who has faced the ire of hardliners for wearing vermillion on her head, practising customs of a Hindu married woman, said that people need to stop using religion as a political tool.

She added that some parties rake up such issues during elections and reminded them that India is a democracy and what you eat, who you marry are personal choices.

Jahan also said that in West Bengal under Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, there is no discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, gender or religion and such the youth are not interested in such issues.

This comes as some BJP ruled states including Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam & Haryana are mulling an anti ‘Love Jihad’ law.
