Rajnath calls for checking religious conversions

“There is a need to check large-scale religious conversions being carried out in the country through inducements by incorporating the provision of embracing any faith before a competent authority... there is a need for a law which would give freedom to the people to choose their religion,” BJP President Rajnath Singh said here on Saturday.


The country is facing threats from within and outside and foreign forces are indulged in large-scale religious conversion in the country, aimed at finishing India’s strength of embracing all faiths of the world, he said while addressing the “Amrit Mahotsav” of senior BJP leader Kailash Narayan Sarang here.

Singh said nearly 30 per cent population were converted in Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and North-Eastern states mainly through inducements, thereby threatening the demographic profile of the nation.
