GUWAHATI, Sept 21 - The Guwahati Senior Citizens� Association (GSCA) today discussed the social problem �love jihad� which has been assuming alarming dimensions in Assam for the last couple of years and urged the government to frame appropriate laws to curb and control the phenomenon.

The meeting held under the presidentship of senior journalist DN Chakravartty was addressed by Khagendranath Dahotia, a retired district and sessions judge, who gave a talk on common law and outlook of the common masses.

He said ignorance of certain basic principles of laws has resulted in ghastly situations when people turned into an irate mob and took the law into their hands and committed heinous crimes like the one that had recently taken place at Teok.

He stressed the need for associations like GSCA to educate the masses on the superiority of the law and the urgency of people on reposing faith in the law. Referring to the new legislation by the State government to protect the interests of elderly parents, he said there is a Central law adopted in 2007 guaranteeing the right of support by adult children and successors, there is no need for a new law to protect the interests of the parents.

Chakravartty, in his presidential remarks, urged the State government to frame appropriate laws to curb the evils like love jihad.

Social worker and founder of Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) Dhirendranath Barua, who was felicitated by the Association, said that proper administration guided and controlled by dedicated and honest leaders of yesteryears like Gopinath Bordoloi and Bimala Prasad Chaliha could save the society from facing many socio-economic problems arising out of poor administration and lack of awareness among the people.
