Fundamental right to propagate religion under Article 25 does not include right to convert: Central government to Supreme Court

During the hearing today, Senior Counsel Sanjay Hegde appeared for a party seeking to intervene in the case. Hedge said he objected to the petition and its maintainability since similar pleas have been withdrawn by the same petitioner in the past.

So you are for forced conversions. How does it matter which Court is hearing it?” Justice Shah demanded.

Upadhyay then alleged that Hedge was a convert himself, and was supporting foreign powers by objecting to his plea.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said that the such conversions are a menace, and filing of interlocutory applications was only a recipe to delay the hearing.

The bench directed the Union government to file an additional affidavit after getting instructions from States on the issue.
