A meeting of National Commission for Women (NCW) chief Rekha Sharma with Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Tuesday is being widely criticised as, according to the commission, she discussed the "rise in love jihad cases" and women's safety in the state.

New Delhi, 21 October 2020

As per news report of NDTV, Rekha Sharma told the governor that there was a rise in cases of "love jihad" in Maharashtra  and highlighted the distinction between consensual inter-faith marriages and "love jihad", stating that the latter required attention, the commission said, reported news agency PTI reported. "Love jihad" is the term used by right-wing groups to target relationships between Muslim men and Hindu women, which, they say, is an elaborate ruse to forcibly convert the women. The women's body also tweeted a photo of Tuesday's meeting, showing Ms Sharma sitting with Mr Koshyari.
