PM Modi or BJP has nothing to do with 'ghar wapsi': Paswan
"Neither the Prime Minister nor the BJP has said anything to back 'ghar wapsi' campaign by the Hindu fringe outfits," the Union Minister said, adding that as far as he was concerned there was nothing wrong in changing one's faith by choice.

"There must not be conversion by force or allurement, but at the same time there is nothing wrong if one decides to convert to another faith," he said.

Paswan said that BR Ambedkar's adoption of the Buddhist religion by choice in 1950s did not make news or was debated.

On the controversy surrounding the Hindi film 'PK', the Union Minister said that he has not seen the film and so he is not in a position to offer any comment.
