West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress MP from Basirhat Nusrat Jahan slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for using religion as a political tool to consolidate their support base ahead of the state assembly elections.
She also spoke about ‘love-jihad’ dubbing it two separate things which have no correlation. The Trinamool parliamentarian said that “love” and “jihad” are two different things which do not go hand-in-hand. She said it is a matter of personal choice who wants to be with whom.
“Love is very personal. Love and jihad don’t go hand-in-hand. Just before polls, people come up with topics like this. It is a personal choice who you want to be with. Be in love and start falling in love with each other. Don’t make religion a political tool,” Jahan said in reply to a question during a media interaction here.
