“Very Serious Matter” : Supreme Court Asks Attorney General to Assist in Religious Conversions Case
Rintu Mariam Biju
On Monday, the Supreme Court asked the Attorney General for India, R Venkataramani to assist the court in the plea seeking to curb forceful and deceitful religious conversions.
The bench had also said that it will not accept the objections raised against the maintainability of the PIL by certain intervenors, who pointed out that the Supreme Court had earlier refused to entertain a similar PIL filed by the same petitioner on the same issue. The intervenors alleged that the petitioner was indulging in forum-shopping after unsuccessfully pursuing the matter before other benches in the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court.
A number of intervention applications have been filed in the Supreme Court alleging that the PIL has been filed on the basis of Whatsapp forwards and unattributed sources to create a false narrative of mass conversions. It has also been alleged that the PIL has made derogatory statements against minorities to further a political agenda.
