but conversion to christianity or any other religion is a crime?
It is not possible to root out terror and restore peace and harmony without ensuring justice. We cannot condemn all or some members of a community for terror when the state, the executive, media and society at large are silent in the face of sheer and brazen brutality continuing against minorities for months just because those who perpetrate it claim immunity because they are from the majority community. Is a crime different if the one who commits it is a muslim, and different if those who terrorize are hindus? Is forcible conversion to hinduism alright but conversion to christianity or any other religion a crime? How many times have people demanded that the liberal muslim speak up and be heard? Why are those strident voices silent now? Are there no liberal hindus in the country? Or is it just that it is easier and safer to bully minorities, telling them they must go down on bended knees, but quite another matter to take on the fascist thugs of the sangh parivar? We have to find the courage to take them on before it is too late to secure peace and harmony in the country.
