AIMMM criticises Rajasthan Govt for Religious Freedom Bill
New Delhi, Mar 28 (UNI) The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) today came down heavily on the Rajasthan government for its decision to introduce the Religious Freedom Bill, 2006, saying it is ''unconstitutional and illegal''.
AIMMM president Syed Shahabuddin alleged the bill will provide the state government a ''tool to harass and terrorise Christians in Rajasthan''.
''We have noted the obnoxious feature of the Rajasthan Bill to facilitate change of religion by non-Hindus to Hinduism... the double standards in the matter of change of religion is blatantly immoral, and illegal,'' he added.
He alleged that the intention of the government is to legalise the 'Ghar Wapsi Programme' of the VHP.
The AIMMM president called upon religious minorities, secular forces and Human Rights Activists to mobilise support against the Bill.
