Mysuru: BJP MLC A. H. Vishwanath on Thursday December 23 questioned the rationale behind the Anti-Conversion Bill tabled in the Assembly on Tuesday December 21. Quoting a few lines from Social Reformer Basavanna, the Veteran Leader said, “He spoke of equality in 12th century. India is a land of multi-religions. As per the Constitution, we can follow the religion that we want.”

Addressing the mediapersons, he said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has never spoken of Hindutva anywhere. Our’s is a country for all religions. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai talking of Anti-Conversion Bill is not in good taste. People will not appreciate what he has
done.”

Vishwanath said, “Assuming the Bill is passed, do you think the Deputy Commissioners have the powers to jail the violators? Children of many
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leaders have married Muslims. Can we
jail them?”

Stating that Congress is playing divide and rule policy, the veteran
leader said, “Congress leaders are saying the Bill was passed when they were not in the House. They only want to claim they are safeguarding the interests of minorities.”

He added, “seers of the Maths are not eliciting their opinions. Social activists are only interested in awards rather than talking against
the State Government. Public opinion should be taken before the Bill
is passed.”

Vishwanath also lashed out at leaders from Belagavi for not talking against Maharashtra Ekikran Samithi for vandalising the city. “There should be no second thought about banning MES, he added.
