Brahmavar: Hindu Jagarana Vedike (HJV) held a flash protest in front of the Kota police station on ht evening of Sunday, October 10 demanding stern action against persons allegedly involved in the religious conversion of local Hindus.

According to sources, the protests began after the police had taken six to seven people into custody for alleged religious conversion.

The HJV activists had informed the police that a family in the Hallady-Harkady village, which had converted from the Hindu religion earlier, was persuading others to change their faith. They alleged that several families from the Bovi community were “illegally” lured into changing their religion.

On October 10, the Hindu activists tipped off the police about a prayer meeting being held at a house in Hallady-Harkady where allegedly several locals were invited to attend. The police had then inspected the house and had taken six to seven individuals for questioning.

Meanwhile, the news of the incident spread like wildfire. Hundreds of Hindu activists gathered at the Kota police station and demanded strict action against the alleged accused, sources said.

District leader of the HJV, Jagadish Kukkehalli, alleged that “illegal religious conversion” was happening in the district on a “large scale.”

Jagadish Kedoor, a Bovi community leader, reportedly said that if conversions are allowed to continue, his community faces the danger of losing its association with Hinduism and sought legal action against the concerned.

Later, Kota Station House Officer Santhosh B.P. talked with the HJV leader and pacified the angry crowd.

According to reports, a complaint has been registered against four individuals names Jyoti, Prakash, Manohar, and Ravi for their alleged involvement in religious conversion.
