Abstract:

"The book then traces the debates on conversion in the Constituent Assembly around the Niyogi report and concerning the freedom of religion acts. It concludes with an examination of the more contemporary Sangh Parivar campaign for Hindutva and Christian campaigns for evangelization." "Scholars and lay readers will find this book immensely relevant and engaging as it discusses a discordant subject dispassionately and sensitively. It will be of particular use to policy-makers, journalists, academicians, and indispensable to researchers and students of sociology, religion, theology, history, politics, and law."--Jacket.
