    Dabhoi MLA Shailesh Mehta (Sotta) has written a letter to the Gujarat Chief Minister expressing the feeling and demand the government should make a law like Uttar Pradesh to prevent the occurrence of love jihad. The letter said that after the marriage is registered, a period of six months and parental consent is required.

    Notably, U.P. government enacted a law to stop Love Jihad and Dabhoi MLA then demanded the Gujarat government to make a law on love jihad. In Vadodara, a controversy has arisen over the marriage of a Muslim youth to a Hindu Brahmin girl. Then once again Shailesh Mehta (Sotta) has written a letter to the Chief Minister to enact a law to curb the rising cases of love jihad in Gujarat.

    In the letter he said, in Vadodara a youth from a minority community in Nagarwada run away and married a Hindu Brahmin girl after conversion. Then a law should be made that a young man and woman can register a marriage wherever they live or the existing law should be amended.

    In addition he said, registration of marriage register takes place in a particular office and it has a period of one month. If there is no objection, the marriage register is recorded in the government book and the note paper is hung behind the office door. After 30 days a certificate of marriage register is issued by the office.

    Neither the young woman nor the man’s family knows about this whole process and certain elements is taken advantage of the same. In Gujarat, there is no specific law for inter-caste young men and women to run away and get married. Due to which Hindu girls are married by converting to another religion. If there is a law, an inquiry can be held into how a Hindu girl was married.

    MLA Shailesh Mehta (Sotta) said in the letter that the Central Government has also amended the Special Marriage Act to give one month’s notice in Sections 5 and 6 and
    research is recommended to improve. In which 60 days should be given instead of 30 days in section 5 and notice should be given to the parents of the married person by amending section 6 and putting a notice in the public place of the office.

    However, a provision should be added or amended in the law that parental consent can register a marriage in the Special Marriage Registration Office, so that love jihad cases will come under control.
