Forceful conversion?

Must be a BJP, RSS or Bajrang Dal conspiracy.

Ask John Dayal, Ambika Soni, Digvijay Singh and they will vouch that such arrests are violations of the Christists’ right to propagate their religion peacefully .

I am sure a delegation will be visiting Sonia Gandhi and soon our Prime Minister will declare that it is a national shame.


Six held for forceful religious conversion

Thane, Apr 22 (PTI) Six persons were arrested from Vasai and Palghar areas here for allegedly indulging in forceful religious conversion of tribals, police said today.

The accused–Vincent Benedict, Alfansoi Davre, Cyger J D’Souza, Santia Manvel D’Souza, Solomon Shinde and Hari Rama–were held last night for forcing Hindu tribals in these talukas to convert to Christianity on the eve of Good Friday, they said.

The arrests came soon after scores of tribals protested in front of the Palghar police station demanding immediate arrest of those involved in conversion activities.

Bowing to pressure, police apprehended the accused and registered complaints against them under sections 295 A and 34 of the IPC late last night.
