Anti-Conversion laws pose challenge to religious freedom

Several States in India have adopted laws against religious conversion. The South Asian Human Rights Documentation Centre, which has analyzed the laws, has found that the language is often broad and vague, posing serious challenges to religious freedom guaranteed by the Constitution and enshrined in international human rights instruments.

For details, please see article in the Economic and Political Weekly.

Ravi Nair, Executive Director, SAHRDC, has invited comments on the study, which can be sent to
