New Delhi: Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu Thursday said the government was ready for a detailed discussion on the Agra 'conversions' issue.
"Let the parliament discuss the issue threadbare and then come to a conclusion, and then let all states and centre together tackle this challenging task of conversions and re-conversions," Naidu told reporters outside the parliament here.
He also said a legislation to ban conversion could be considered if all parties extend support.
"If all the parties support, let there be a legislation also to ban conversion, because this has been the wish of Mahatma Gandhi," he said.
The minister's comments follow the recent incident of alleged forcible conversion of about 300 Muslims in Agra, which rocked the parliament for the second time Thursday.
