India’s ‘Love Jihad’ Conspiracy Theory – Channel 4 News

June 8, 2022

We speak with Mandakini Gahlot, our reporter and her producer in India, about how falling in love with the wrong person can ruin your life.


Many Muslims in India say they are experiencing a wave of persecution as Hindu extremists wage a campaign of intimidation to end interfaith marriages between Hindus and Muslims.

Violence perpetrated by gangs who believe Muslims seduce Hindu women into marriage in an attempt to turn India into a Muslim republic.

India’s Hindu nationalist government says it is against violence and the BJP says they have introduced laws in response to a certain type of crime that has had a high number of reported cases. In these cases, Muslim men have misrepresented their name and religion in order to marry women of other religions, revealing their true identity and forcing their wives to hide their religion.

But critics say they were actually designed to eradicate interfaith marriages.

We speak with Mandakini Gahlot, our reporter and her producer in India, about how falling in love with the wrong person can ruin your life.
