A new letter came to light on the Love Jihad Act in Uttar Pradesh on Monday. The letter, written by 224 retired officers headed by former Chief Secretary Yogendra Narayan, supports the law. At the same time, the previous letter of former bureaucrats has been said to be politically motivated. It has been said in the letter that it is wrong to teach Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath the constitution.

Five days ago (30 December 2020) 104 former bureaucrats accused the Uttar Pradesh government of doing politics of hate. It demanded the repeal of the Love Jihad Act. The letter that came out on Monday has given the answer to the previous letter.

During British rule, the princes had made such laws
244 former officers associated with the Forum of Concerned Citizens in their letter have supported the Yogi government-made law to stop love jihad. It states that many princely states had implemented similar laws in the British Raj. This poses no threat to the Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb of Uttar Pradesh. This ordinance is effective against those who cheat by hiding religion and caste.

The letter also said that some retired officers (who are generally against the anti-government nature) are opposing the law. Politically, these officials, who advocate one side, do not represent thousands of former officials. It is also irresponsible to ask CM Yogi to read the Constitution again in the previous letter. It is also a weakening of the constitutional framework.

104 former IAS wrote a letter against the law
Five days ago, 104 former IAS officers wrote a letter to CM Yogi Adityanath to demand the repeal of the Love Jihad Act. It included former officials such as former National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao and TKA Nair, a former advisor to the Prime Minister. He wrote that UP was once a state to irrigate the Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb. But now it has become the center of politics of division, bigotry and hate.

Love jihad law approved on 28 November
On November 28, the Governor of Uttar Pradesh Anandiben Patel approved the Unlawful Prevention of Religion Ordinance. This ordinance does not mention love jihad or any particular religion, but in UP it is being called a law against love jihad.
