After Uttar Pradesh and Haryana government said they were considering legislation against ‘love jihad’, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Tuesday said the state government would soon bring in a law to counter the problem.

With this, Madhya Pradesh has become the third BJP- ruled state to announce its intention to make legal provisions against 'Love Jihad'.

A bill may be brought in the next assembly session to tackle ‘Love Jihad’, Mishra said. He also mentioned that there will be a provision of five years of rigorous imprisonment in it.

'Love jihad' is a term used by right-wing activists to refer to the alleged campaign of Muslims forcing Hindu girls to convert in the guise of love.
