  1. If I understand the topic, it means present freedom to change my religion to the one I chose from the one I have now should be free from any external pressure of what so ever nature and of entirely of my own choice, if at a later date it is found that I have changed my religion to a new one under any pressure it will be punishable under anti religious conversion law.
    This seems quite in order to me .

  2. Yes forcible convertion is not to be encouraged. If one wants to convert to another religion willfully should be allowed on the basis of human rights.
    Every human should be given complete freedom to choose his religion. Forcing conversion should be made punishable and it is ideal.
    It has to be viewed in both angles. Person wishes to get converted should not be victimised by delaying in giving permission or illegal way of harrassment demanding bribes etc. for quicker disposal. This will only lead to more corruption and inhumane.
    If the Government is sure of bringing unbiased justice to every citizen irrespective of religion passing the bill is not an issue at all.

  3. If a person recently belonging to the community which comes under open catagory convert himself to the religion belonging to reserve catagory will he get the reservation as per law. Pls comment
