Religious organizations not to be allowed to hold congregations in Educational Institutions: CM

Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said that action would be taken against people responsible for damage to property during a protest in Rampur Bushahr on Sunday. He directed the police authorities to ensure strict action against those who tried to break in to the school campus gate. Mr. Singh who was addressing a public meeting at Jeuri in Rampur Sub Division of district Shimla today said it was disgusting that few people were involved in hooliganism in the name of religion at Rampur Bushahr.

 

He said that such incidents were not in interest of the State and never before such type of vandalism had been witnessed in HP. Cautioning he said that the communal violence should be avoided and government institutes should not serve as the venue for religious ceremonies. No religious organizations will be allowed to hold congregations in educational institutions, he said.

 

He said that conversion of religion by luring and paying for the same was not a good practice and it should not be made a business. Such practice needs to be stopped as conversion by luring or financing was illegal and banned and one had to apply to the district magistrate on a form to seek permission to do so. No person abet any such conversion, too, he said. Himachal was the first State in the Country which had passed a law against conversion and would be imposed strictly, he added.

 

The Chief Minister said that every citizen of India had the right to practice the religion of his choice but few religious organizations in the country were seen involved in suppressing the true spirit of right to freedom of religion. He cautioned the people to be aware of  such people and also those who shift their loyalties when elections were around the corner. Without naming he said that many people, nearing elections, jump from one branch to other shifting loyalties and we should be aware of such people who try to deceive people.
