A day after BJP Mathura MP Hema Malini voiced her concern over “love jihad” and vowed to raise it in Parliament, the Congress posed an interesting question.
Congress general secretary Shakeel Ahmed took to Twitter and talked about Hema Malini and her husband Dharmendra’s conversion to Islam at the time of their marriage. “Present BJP MP Hema Malini & Dharmendra (14th LS) were converted to Islam at the time of their marriage. Was it “Love Jihad”? Only BJP can say,” he said.
Interestingly, two of the most visible Muslim faces of the BJP — Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Shahnawaz Hussain — are both married to Hindus.
