Anti-conversion law after deliberations, says DVS

Anti-conversion law after deliberations, says DVS

The Union Cabinet will take a decision on the feasibility of enacting a law to curb conversions after collecting the opinion of religious leaders, legal luminaries, experts and other stakeholders, said Union Minister for Law D V Sadananda Gowda.

With regards to the “conversion by inducement” of Muslims in Agra, which has rocked the on-going session of the Parliament, Gowda said, “Each religion has its own take on conversions. The Cabinet will consider all aspects before taking a decision on enacting an anti-conversion law.”

He said the Centre had started the process of repealing obsolete laws. In all, it has identified 232 obsolete laws to be repealed by the Parliament.

On the decision to ban Kambala, Gowda said it was not correct to ban the rural sport which has a history of over 100 years. 

The minister was speaking to mediapersons on the sidelines of an event organised to mark the renaming of Malleswaram East Park Road after Veda Brahma Sathyanarayana Shastri here on Sunday.
