AGARTALA: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has cautioned that any attempt of forcible religious conversion in the state will be severely dealt with.

"Left Front government is cautious about the religious freedom of every person or community and our government will not leave any stone unturned to thwart any attempt of forcible conversion and strict legal action will be taken against such move," Sarkar told a meeting of party workers yesterday at Gandhacherra town in Dhalai district, about 150 km from here.

He said there was no religious conflict in the state, where Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Buddhists were living in communal harmony and that tradition should be maintained with utmost care.

"We are aware that some people are converted from one religion to another in Uttar Pradesh by giving them BPL card and other facilities, but any such attempt will be resisted here," Sarkar said.
