Rajnath Singh on Friday claimed he doesn’t know the meaning of love jihad, when he was asked about it by a media person.
Digvijaya wrote in his letter, “How can you not know what Love Jihad is? You said you don’t know what love jihad is. I can’t believe that you are unaware of a term used in your home state (Uttar Pradesh), by leaders of the BJP, VHP and the RSS”.
“You probably don’t even know that the Election Commission has passed strictures against your party’s Yogi Adityanath”, he added.
Yogi Adityanath, a star campaigner for BJP during UP by-polls had attempted to trigger the campaign with the term ‘love jihad’, which refers to a campaign by Muslim youth aimed at marrying and then converting Hindu women, as Hindutva hardliners believe.
