Muslim youth booked under anti-conversion law

Bijnor (UP): A Muslim youth from Bijnor (UP) has been charged with trying to convert his girlfriend under the month-old anti-conversion law under sections of the SC/ST Act, and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

However, the 16-year-old girl, who is a Dalit, stands firm. “I have told this to the magistrate, and I will say this again. Those men had a problem with me walking with my friend. They made videos of me and are now calling it love jihad. I did nothing wrong. I went of my own free will,” she told ‘The Indian Express’ on 24-12-2020
