Reply has been sought from all the parties by November 14. Advocate Ashwini Upadhyay has filed this petition in the apex court. In this, it has been requested to direct the Central and State Governments to make strict laws to stop conversions done by intimidation, force or fraud, gift or allurement. Upadhyay said that this is a nationwide problem, so it needs to be controlled immediately.

In the petition filed through advocate Ashwini Kumar Dubey, it has been said that there is not a single district in the country which is free from ‘hook and crook’ i.e. yen cane conversion. There are incidents every week across the country where conversions are done by intimidation, in the greed of gifts and money or by cheating and by using black magic, superstition, miracles. The Center and the states have not taken strong steps to stop this menace.
