India, Nov. 22 -- Raising questions on the senior leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and law on inter-faith marriages, Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel on Saturday asked whether inter-religion marriages in families of BJP leaders fall under the definition of ''love jihad''.

"Family members of several BJP leaders have also performed inter-religion marriages. I ask BJP leaders if these marriages come under the definition of 'love jihad'?" Baghel asked while speaking to media persons on Saturday.

The statement came after Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath recently announced that his government will bring a strict law to curb "love jihad" and forcible religious conversion.
