Bhopal School Allegedly Converted People into Christianity, 6 Arrested

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): As many as six people have been arrested on Monday for allegedly trying to convert people into followers of Christianity at the Christ Memorial School in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, an official said. Following this matter, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra said that the police have been directed to monitor the conversion activities in schools.

According to the police, a Hindu man and woman were converted within the school premises.

Police in the state capital said that a Bhopal resident had complained about the alleged conversion in the school.

“A man identified as Rajesh Malviya, along with his 23-year-old daughter Riddika, was explaining to the people that Hinduism is bad and Christianity is good. The school director, Manes Mathews, fled before the police arrived. The police arrested the father-daughter duo, along with Kamani John of Gandhi Nagar and Paul Polis, a resident of Phanda.

Bhopal’s Bairagarh police station in charge DP Singh said that following a complaint, a police team on Sunday raided the Christ Memorial School premises where a group had gathered and people were about to be converted. Father Paul Polas, Kamini Paul, Rajesh Malviya and Ritika Malviya were arrested on the spot while the school director Menis Mathew and Rahul Sharma were arrested on Monday, he said.

DP Singh said that the accused are being booked under Section 153A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and provisions of the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act.

When asked about this incident, the state government spokesperson and home minister Narottam Mishra told reporters, “Instructions have been given to the police intelligence to monitor whether the conversion activities are going on in missionary schools of Madhya Pradesh.”
