New Delhi: Union Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said that he does not support the idea of conversion for marriage and questioned the need for the same.

Speaking in support of the anti-conversion legislation passed by the Uttar Pradesh government, the Defence Minister, in an exclusive interview with ANI said that the practice of mass conversions should stop.

“I want to ask why there should be a conversion. The practice of mass conversions should stop. As far as I know, in the Muslim religion, one cannot marry someone from another religion. I personally do not approve of conversion for marriage,” he said.

On a question regarding the alleged misuse of the anti-conversion law, the BJP leader said there is a difference between “natural marriage” and forceful conversions in the pretext of marriage.

“In many cases, you may have seen that the religious conversion is being done forcefully and sometimes it is done under greed. I think governments which made these laws have considered all these things,” he explained.

Further, Singh went on to say that India is the only country that has delivered the message of ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam’, which means ‘the whole world is a family’.

“I believe that a true Hindu will not do discrimination based on caste, religion and sects. Our religious scriptures do not give permission for this,” Singh said.
