Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh Governments have brought laws to stop conversion through marriage or by any other fraudulent means. On November 28, 2020, Uttar Pradesh became the first State to outlaw inter-faith marriage when Governor Aanandiben Patel promulgated the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020.
