Abstract

The recently introduced Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020 “has faced staunch opposition from certain sections of society. Even though the law proposes steps to protect victims against fraud, coercion, and deception, it has received criticism due to the circumstances surrounding its implementation. Although the proposal treats all religions equally and is consistent with the fundamental rights to freedom of religion and the liberty to marry the person of one’s choice, detractors continue to look for flaws where none exist. This article highlights the positive impact that widespread implementation of such an ordinance might have on rural India as well as the constitutional issues that it may encounter by providing an example of the demography that the ordinances affect.”
