“Conversion is a social issue and it has no association with the Modi government,” Adityanath said while talking to reporters here.

He said if the BJP government wants to frame an  anti-conversion law, why are the opposition parties not supporting it.

The Gorakhpur MP further said that at several places Hindus were being converted, but the opposition leaders are not commenting on that.

        Before Hindus converted to other religions, now people from other religions are converting to Hinduism. Congress supported conversion before, not it doesn't. It shows congress party's double talk on the issue. And everyone can see their hypocracy. Congress is losing their supporters and everyone knows it. People know congress is anti-national

            If a Dalit or Tribal (From Shaktism) feels he has been oppressed by Upper Caste - then switch over to Shaivism (Shiva was a Chandal turned Yogi), else Switch over to Buddhism or Sikhism which contested against both Shaivism & Vaishnavism of Hinduism and have their own proper faiths. Or If you want peace and Non violence then move to Jainism. If you believe in no god or atheism you have Charvaka Ideology. You have so much of Diverse Ideologies in India. Why move to Islam or Christianity - bcos that will do the rubbing of Salt on the Hindus. If some one is moving out of Hindu religion bcos of Grudge on Hinduism your heart will be filled with Sin and Soon the Sin / Grudge removal is coming.
