911 persons sought nod to convert in 2 years: Guj CM

As many as 911 persons in Gujarat, including 863 Hindus and 35 Muslims, sought the state government's permission in the last two years to change their religion, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani informed the Assembly Tuesday. 
Of the 911 persons, 689 were granted approval, Rupani, who handles the state's Home portfolio, informed in a written reply. The Budget session of the Gujarat Assembly commenced here Tuesday with the Question Hour. The CM was replying to questions raised by Congress MLAs, who sought details of applications received by the Home Department from citizens in the last two years (till May 31, 2019) wishing to embrace another religion.
Of the 911 applications, 863 were received from Hindus followed by Muslims (35), Christians (11), Khoja (1) and Buddhist (1), Rupani said. Among Hindus who applied for permission to convert, the highest number of applications were received from Surat district (474), followed by Junagadh (152) and Anand (61), he informed. Those seeking nod for religious conversion hailed from 24 out of the 33 districts of Gujarat, Rupani told the House in his written replies.
