Several Hindu groups, including the Bajrang Dal and the Sanskriti Bachao Manch held protests in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal alleging that people associated with Christian missionaries are forcefully converting Hindus residing in the Shivnagar area to Christians. They said that they had caught red-handed the people associated with missionaries while they were “forcing Hindus to pray to Jesus”.

They filed a police complaint on the issue and demanded the arrest of all those who are allegedly involved in such activities.

The Hindu groups held a protest in Shivnagar on Sunday against the alleged conversions. They claimed that the Christian pastors in the area are involved in converting Hindus every Sunday and the same has been going on for a month. They said the pastors tempted the Hindus.

Meanwhile, the Hindus who were praying to Jesus said their change of faith was not forceful but a voluntary decision.
