    Need to Check Religious Conversions in India: Rajnath

    BJP President Rajnath Singh has said that there is a strong need in the country for amending the constitution to check large scale religious conversions allegedly being carried out by foreign forces through inducements.

    "There is a need to check large scale religious conversion being carried out in the country through inducements by incorporating the provision of embracing any faith before a competent authority," Singh said addressing the 'Amrit Mahotsav' of senior BJP leader Kailash Narayan Sarang, here last night.

    The country is facing lot of threats from within and outside and foreign forces were indulged in large scale religious conversion in the country with an aim to finish India's strength of embracing all faiths of the world, he said.

    "Because of the strong beliefs in Nationalism and Indianisation of workers like Sarang and others like him, they are unable to succeed in their designs. Therefore there is a need for having a law in the country which should give freedom to people to choose their religion," Singh said.

    Those opposing Ram Sethu or Amarnath Shrine Board land issue were also not successful in their designs because of the nationalist fervor of these leaders, he added.

    Citing examples of Jharkhand, Chhatisgarh and North Eastern states, Singh said that nearly 30 per cent population were converted in those states mainly through inducements, thereby threatening the demographic profile of the nation.

    Praising Sarang, the BJP President said that leaders like him and late Kushabhau Thakare have toiled hard in establishing the party.

    Recalling his association with Sarang, Singh, who is also the Congress General Secretary revealed that late Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia had given the task to Sarang to ensure that he (Singh) should join Jansangh.

    "Though Sarang spend three full days in convincing me to join Jansangh, I decided to join Congress and since then I enjoy very close relationship with him," Singh said.

    Singh also said that many leaders, who were sitting on the dais and occupying important positions today is because of Sarang's hard work, but he himself never opted for any post which is a rare quality in today's materialistic world.

    Former Chief Minister Sunderlal Patwa recalled how he and Sarang collected nearly Rs three crore for the party by touring the state and described Sarang as a man of organisation.

    The function was also addressed by Kailash Joshi and Digvijay Singh, BJP General Secretary Thavar Chand Gehlot and the State Party President Narendra Singh Tomar and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan among others.

We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism.
