Modi government could place anti-conversion bill in the next parliament session

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government has made a name for itself by taking big decisions. It is said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is someone who doesn’t fear taking big risks. Be it demonetization, Surgical strikes, Air Strikes or the latest one, the abrogation of article 370. And now if the reports are to be believed then the government has yet another big move in store for the next parliamentary session.

Sources have suggested that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government may bring the anti-conversion bill in the next session of Parliament.

The sources said that the government has already started preparations for the same and discussion are underway to bring the bill that might prevent any kind of religious conversion.

This comes shortly after the conclusion of the Budget Session of Parliament wherein the government passed key bills like Jammu and Kashmir Re-organisation Bill, which bifurcates the state into two Union Territories – Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh, and Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which criminalises triple talaq.

In a release issued by Parliamentary Affairs Ministry, it said the session has been historic in many ways as legislations relating to almost all walks of socio and economic activities have been passed.

“Thirty bills have been passed by both the Houses of Parliament in this session which is a record in single first/effective session after the constitution of new Lok Sabha,” the release said.
Noting that the session has seen “extraordinary output”, the release said 40 Bills (33 in Lok Sabha and 7 in Rajya Sabha) were introduced. Thirty-five bills were passed by Lok Sabha and 32 by Rajya Sabha.
