Talking in favour of the UP Government’s “anti-conversion” law, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that he does not support marriage conversions.
“I want to ask why there should be a conversion. The custom of mass conversions should stop. As far as I know, in Islam, one cannot marry someone from another religion. I honestly do not endorse of conversion for marriage,” Rajnath Singh said.
He addressed a question about the abuse of the anti-conversion legislation passed by the government of Uttar Pradesh. Rajnath Singh is Lucknow’s Lok Sabha MP.
He said there was a difference between “natural marriage” and a strong religious conversion for marriage.
“In many cases, you may have seen that the religious conversion is being done forcefully and sometimes it is done under greed. Natural marriage and forceful conversion for marriage has a big difference and I think governments which made these laws have considered all these things,” he said.
