Moreover, Federation has urged the police to arrest all those self-styled leaders who are involved in the assault with the sole objective of cheap publicity.
Those leaders who allege conversion should gather the information on true information and details of who are really involved in conversion activities. If Christians were truly engaged in conversion why the Christian population has not increased, even after 60 years of the independence in India? they questioned. Let the so-called leaders who are involved in assault realize this in toto and let the officers prove it. Let the self-styled leaders give up their tendencies to take law into their hands.
