India: Religion

Volume 716: debated on Wednesday 13 January 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will make representations to the Government of India about anti-conversion laws that affect the ability to leave Hinduism for another religion. [HL1040]

Anti-conversion laws have been introduced by some Indian states. Alongside EU partners we have raised the subject at meetings with Indian officials in the context of the EU-India human rights dialogue. We maintain a constructive dialogue with the Indian authorities about human rights and minority rights issues more generally in India.
