Complaint filed against Karnataka CM, HM, Speaker over Anti-conversion

RAICHUR: A complaint has been filed against Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, state Home Minister Araga Jnanendra, Speaker Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri, and all BJP legislators over the controversial Karnataka Protection of Right to Freedom of Religion Bill, 2021, also known as the Anti-conversion Bill.

R. Manaiah, a social activist, filed the complaint with Lingasugur police station in Raichur district, officials said on Monday. In his complaint, the petitioner has requested legal action against all state BJP leaders. The complainant alleges that the ruling BJP portrayed members from the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe communities in a negative light when it introduced the Anti-Conversion Bill.

"The Anti-conversion Bill has represented the people of these communities as vagabonds, beggars, and as the ones who become converted to other religions with the lure of money, cloth, enticements, and acts of donations," the complainant alleged. In this context, the complaint has requested action for depicting specific communities in a negative way in the Karnataka Protection of Right to Freedom of Religion Bill, which was just introduced in the Assembly session.

When the bill was tabled by state Home Minister Araga Jnaendra, the BJP MLAs in the Assembly greeted it with a bang on their desks. In his complaint, the complainant requests that action be taken against Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and others.
