He claimed that large-scale conversion had taken place during the outbreak of the COVID pandemic.
“We are in talks with Centre. This is not a political issue. We urge both the central and state governments, belonging to whichever parry, to stop forcible conversion by Muslim and Christian preachers,” the VHP leader added.
