BJP in its manifesto promises to bring laws against land and love jihad. Land jihad, refers to encroachment on indigenous lands by perceived encroachers: Bangladeshi Muslims.

To sum up the reactions, the public are skeptical of land and love jihad. Some of them have not even heard of love jihad in Assam, nor are they remotely interested in land jihad.
