New Delhi: Opposition parties on Thursday accused the BJP government of pursuing communal agenda, prompting treasury benches to hit back by charging them with keeping quiet when Hindus are converted under allurement or coercion. Countering them, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said “there should be anti-conversion laws in all states as well as the Centre.” The Congress opposed strongly this.

Assaduddin Owaisi (AIMIM) said Muslims are not scared of forced conversations and they would continue to follow their religion. He urged the government to rein in certain Hindu organisations.

He said how would the two Muslim faces in the Narendra Modi government feel if they are asked to convert "and come back home."
