BJP MLA promotes child marriage to prevent Hindu girls falling in love

Bhopal, May 6: A legislator of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Madhya Pradesh has found out a new way to prevent Hindu girls from falling in love and marring men of their choice.

According to Gopal Parmar, MLA from Agar constituency, if a Hindu girl falls in love with a Hindu man of her choice and marries her without parents’ permission, it should be considered elopement and if a Hindu girls marries a Muslim man it should be called ‘love jihad’, a term often used by communal hate mongers.

In an interview the hardline Hindtuva leader said that he supports early marriages because child marriages, including those involving grooms and brides who never saw each other before, used to last “forever”, unlike divorces that are commonplace today. 

“Earlier girls and boys used to marry before they turned 18 and 21. Marriages were fixed when they used to be of tender age, and did not go astray…or (they did not) think of anyone else. Now they meet at coaching classes and some fall prey to vices like ‘love jihad’,’’ he said.

Linking late marriages to the so called “love jihad”, the BJP leader said girls are “emotional” and that they “get carried away” when someone offers to help them by changing name and identity. 

“I married as a child, and I ensured that marriages of my children — two daughters and a son — were fixed before they attained the legal age of marriage,” said the 53-year-old MLA.
