Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday said the proposed Anti-Conversion Law that the state government intends to introduce in the winter session of the Assembly is only to prevent religious conversions by inducements. Speaking to media persons here on Sunday, he said that the people need not worry about the proposed Anti-Conversion Bill. The CM said that the proposed law will not affect any religion, their practices and traditions that are guaranteed under the Constitution.
“Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Sikhism are constitutionally recognised religions. There would be no hindrance to the worship and religious practices of people belonging to any religion. The bill is only to prevent religious conversions by inducements,” the Chief Minister said.
He further said that religious conversion is not good for society. “The poor and vulnerable sections of the society should not fall for it. Conversions bring problems within the families. So, the bill is being proposed,” he added.
