Watch | Are Religious Conversions a Threat to India?

Delhi University Professor Apoorvanand speaks to political scientist Neera Chandhoke to understand the debate surrounding religious conversion in India.

The issue of religious conversions is once again in the news. The Uttar Pradesh police recently claimed to have busted a “religious conversion racket” in Delhi. Two people have been arrested and booked under several sections of the IPC besides the harsh National Security Act (NSA).

On the other hand, a similar issue of ‘conversion’ has also emerged from Jammu and Kashmir, where the families of two Sikh women have claimed that they were “forcibly converted” to a different religion.

Earlier, states such as Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh had booked several Muslim men under anti-conversion laws accusing them of the bogey of “love jihad”.
