“The group has converted under the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act 2021. They have submitted an affidavit to the district administration, proclaiming they are voluntarily changing their religion,” said Pawri.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Abhinay Vishwakarma while speaking to PTI stated, “We have received information about 28 people participating in a ritual for voluntary change of religion at Khajrana Ganesh temple. We have not received any complaint so far that these people have changed religion due to any pressure, influence or greed. If a complaint is received, appropriate legal steps will be taken.”

Pertinently, the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act 2021 was introduced and enacted by the state government. The act prohibits religious conversions through force fraud or greed. Violators can face jail of up to 10 years and Rs 1 lakh fine.
