Opposition corners the government in Parliament over conversion issue

The opposition attacked the government in the parliament over the issue of conversion of Muslims to Hindu in Agra, saying changing religion by force was illegal.

Mayawati (BSP) raised the issue in the Rajya Sabha demanding the government to answer on mass conversions in Agra. The BSP Chief said the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh government must take the issue seriously, and added that communal forces needed to be stopped from doing such things. She alleged that the conversions were carried out by the RSS by giving inducements.

However, the government directed the entire matter towards the State saying the centre has nothing to do with this as law and order is a state subject.

"Law and order is a state subject, the state needs to act in the matter", said Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, in the Upper House.
