No one converts with the sword, but under the influence of good deeds : Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s vacuous claim

Editorial comments

  • Even a child won’t believe this ! Not only in India, but all over the world, Islam has spread only by the force of the sword, this is history, and it is a fact that even today, conversions are being done by lure, deceit, etc.
  • Ghulam Nabi Azad should tell what good deeds are being done by Christians and Islamists, that Hindus are embracing other religions !
  • If Azad holds such an opinion, then he should also tell why the converted Hindus face opposition when they re-enter Hindu Dharma ?

Udhampur (J&K) – Referring to the anti-conversion bill passed in Karnataka, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said if anyone is converting people, he is not using a sword or threat. ‘It is the good work and character of individuals which are influencing people. People convert after getting influenced, as they see this particular religion is serving humanity, taking everyone along and not discriminating’, Azad said.

The aforementioned Bill was opposed by members of the opposition in Karnataka. The Bill states that no individual shall misrepresent, coerce, influence, seduce or in any other way of deceit, by marriage or in any other way, convert or attempt to convert another individual from one religion to another or hatch any conspiracy.

Earlier, the Gujarat Legislative Assembly had passed the ‘Gujarat Freedom of Religion Act, 2021’ with a majority. It provides severe punishment for those who forcibly convert through marriage. The States of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh have also passed similar laws.
