- Aam Aadmi Party welcomes BJP’s support of intercaste and inter-faith marriages
- Manoj Tiwari, a BJP leader was the one raised his voice for it
- It was after a recent case of honour killing
Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday said it welcomed BJP’s support to inter-faith and inter-religious marriages.
“Irrespective of our political ideologies, I welcome Manoj Tiwari ji who has supported inter-faith and inter-religious marriages by consenting adults,” AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj tweeted.
His remarks came a day after the Delhi BJP unit chief Manoj Tiwari condemned the alleged honour killing of 23-year-old Ankit Saxena in the city.
Saxena, a photographer, was allegedly killed by the family of a woman he was in a relationship with.
According to Delhi Police, the woman’s family was against their relationship as they belonged to different communities and had told him to end it. IANS
