The Congress government in Karnataka has started preparations to withdraw the anti-conversion law brought during the BJP government.

What did the National General Secretary of BJP say?

CT Ravi said that 'anti-conversion law was implemented in the BJP government to stop forced conversions. Today the Congress government is promoting forced conversions and in a way giving license to those people who entice people to convert. This should be stopped. CT Ravi said that I have spoken to the sadhus on this issue that now it is their responsibility to protect the Hindu society. I have appealed that a mahapanchayat should be called against this decision of the Congress government. There is a need to take direct action to protect the society.
