Please listen to Mr. Asif Iqbal talk about Love, Interfaith Marriage, Special Marriage Act and why some interfaith couples are forced to choose a religious ceremony over the Special Marriage Act –
The fake claim by the Hindu right that there is a “Love Jihad”organisation which is forcing Hindu women to convert to Islam through false expressions of love is similar to a campaign in the 1920s in north India against alleged “abductions”. Whether 1920 or 2009, Hindu patriarchal notions appear deeply entrenched in such campaigns: images of passive victimised Hindu women at the hands of inscrutable Muslims abound, and any possibility of women exercising their legitimate right to love and their right to choice is ignored.
