Mumbai, Oct 24 (UNI) The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) today demanded that the Union Government should pass a legislation banning religious conversions across the country.

Talking to mediapersons here, senior RSS leader and member of the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal Shrikand Joshi said a meeting of the Mandal was held at Gudivola from October 17 to 19, which strongly condemned the brutal murder of Swamy Lakshmanananda Saraswathi and his four disciples namely Sadhvi Bhaktimayee, Baba Amritanand, Kishor Baba and Puranjan Ganthi at his Ashram in Jaleshpatta of Kandhamal district in Orissa by a group of Christian zealots on August 23.

He also stressed on the need for curbing Islamic terrorism with an 'Iron Hand'.

The ABKM has called upon the people in power to shed their vote-bank politics and show courage, determination and foresight to curb this menace with an iron hand, he said.

The ABKM passed third resolution about widespread carnage by Bangladeshi infiltrators in Assam.

He said the ABKM cautioned the Central and state governments that the incidents of Assam could reccur in other states also if the problem of infiltration by Bangladeshi Muslims is not resolved.

Keeping in view the gravity of the situation, Mr Joshi said the Central Government should enact a comprehensive legislation on the lines of Britain and some other countries, to detect the Bangladeshi Muslim infiltrators, delete their names from the voters' lists and deport them to Bangladesh, besides penalising those who give shelter or employment to such infiltrators, he added.

In the fourth resolution, the ABKM complimented the Amarnath Yatra Sangharsha Samiti for their fight on the issue.

Mr Joshi said the RSS has appealed the Central Government to stop appeasement of the secessionist and pro-Pakistan elements and take stern action against them to restore peace in the Kashmir Valley. At the same time, it should immediately change its continued unjust and discriminatory actions against Jammu and Ladakh.
