Thiruvananthapuram: KPCC president V M Sudheeran on Monday said that the conversion-campaign run by some Hindu outfits in the country was a serious matter and a challenge to the country’s constitutional principles.
Talking to reports here, the Congress leader said the recent reports about Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) converting a batch of 30 persons belonging to eight Christina families in Alappuzha were alarming.
“Such acts will harm the principles of the constitution. People in the state should be united against such moves.
“The effort of the BJP and RSS is to divide the society communally. The secular people should resist it,” Sudheeran said.
He also sought legal action against those who conduct such programmes.
Amidst raging controversy over conversion in the country, a batch of 30 persons belonging to eight families of Scheduled Caste Christians were converted to Hinduism under the auspices of Vishwa Hindu Parishad in Alappuzha on Sunday.
The ritual of 'home-coming', organised by district wing of VHP, was held at a local temple at Kanichanallor.
