The News Minute | December 29, 2014 | 12.08 pm IST Prevention of religious conversion is not possible in India, said former Union minister and BJP member O. Rajagopal. “From the early times every individual has had the freedom to practice any religion in India. This is what the Indian Constitution has also adopted. But none have the right to forcibly convert anyone to any religion. There is a debate going on in Kerala about religious conversions. It is to be understood that Hindus who had been converted to other religions for benefits are only being brought back,” Manorama Online reported him as saying.  He added that people are re-converting only to Hinduism is what is making a few people think that it is going to be a disaster. He said that when in the last 6 months 650 Hindus and Christians in Kerala were converted to Islam none had any problem. It is not caste, but cateism that is the problem, he said.  Tweet
