Central anti-conversion law can stop conversions: Sushma Swaraj
BHOPAL: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on
Thursday said that religious conversions in the country will continue till a
central law against the practice comes into force.
Such a law can come into existence if all political
parties agree to it, the Union Cabinet minister said. She was responding to a
question on whether events like Ghar Vapasi (reconversion ceremonies organised
by right-wing organisations across the country) were proving a hurdle in the
Narendra Modi government’s development and good governance agenda.
Defending anti-conversion laws in BJP-ruled Gujarat
and Madhya Pradesh, the Lok Sabha member from Vidisha insisted that they did
not ban voluntary conversions.
