Advocating for a stringent law against forced conversions, Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Katiyar on Monday said a “relaxation” must be there for the “converted person” to revert back to his or her earlier religion.
“No one should be allowed to embrace another religion. A relaxation must be there for the converted person to revert back (ghar-vapsi) to his or her earlier religion, to which he or she was born,” he told reporters here.
He said “the Opposition parties must support the issue (stringent law ) in both the Houses”, adding that “Ghar-Vapsi is the fundamental right of a person converted under duress whatsoever”.
Katiyar was in Shalimar Garden here to launch a BJP’s membership drive.
