Late on Sunday evening, a small protest against forced conversions turned into a full-blown standoff between the police and Hindu activists.
Four people, including two women, have been arrested for allegedly attempting to coax people into converting to another religion, at Neelahalli village in Yadgir taluk on Sunday.
The decision was taken after the gram sabha made repeated requests to the families to return back to Sarna Religion, but in vain.
BJP spokesperson RP Singh hit out at the SGPC on Thursday for passing a resolution against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
The officer identified Jaunpur natives Durga Prasad Yadav, Kirit Rai and Jitendra Ramone as those named in the FIR.
The two parties are left with no other option after the influential Nagaland Baptist Church Council warned voters of ‘Hindutva forces’.
