Bengaluru: A delegation of priests led by Archbishop of Bengaluru, Dr. Peter Machado, met Chief Minister Basavaraj S. Bommai at his office on Wednesday September 22 and discussed the necessity to enact a law to ban forcible religious conversions.

Speaking to the CM, they expressed their unhappiness at the allegations made by former minister, Goolihatti Shekhar, about forced religious conversions by Christians. They denied the allegation and stressed that no forcible conversions are taking place in Christianity and termed the said allegations as being far from true.

They argued that thousands of children study in Christian institutions and none of them have been converted. “Therefore, we insist that there is no need for a separate bill to stop conversions,” they stated.

Speaking to the media later, Archbishop of Bengaluru, Dr. Peter Machado said that after listening to their plea, the CM told them that in his opinion none of them are indulging in forcible conversions.
