This is the first arrest in the state for violating it after the enactment of the Karnataka Protection of Right to Freedom of Religion Act-2022 notified by the state government on September 30. The arrested youth is accused of converting the girl’s religion. This case was registered on 8 October at Yeshwantpur police station.

According to a report in the Indian Express, two separate cases were registered against 22-year-old Syed Muheen from North Bangalore. One of which has been registered under the suspected kidnapping and the other under the Anti-Conversion Act. Muheen had allegedly eloped with his neighbor, 18-year-old Khushboo Yadav, and got him converted to Islam for their marriage. The police arrested Muheen based on the complaint of the girl’s mother.

According to the information given to the police, Khushboo was taken to a dargah near Penukonda in Andhra Pradesh on October 5 and Muheen asked her to convert to Islam. He said that after this incident at the dargah, Mahin brought Khushboo back to Bangalore. The girl’s mother, Gyanathidevi, said in her complaint that her daughter has been converted without following the rules.

Whereas in accordance with the Karnataka Right to Freedom of Religion Act-2022, no person shall convert or attempt to convert any other person from one religion to another by means of misrepresentation, force, undue influence, coercion, allurement or any fraudulent means or by marriage will not. Nor shall any person instigate or conspire for any conversion.

Under this law, the marriage will get legal recognition only when information about the conversion is given to the District Magistrate 30 days before or 30 days after the conversion. Violators of this law have been proposed to be imprisoned for three to five years and a fine of Rs 25,000 in the case of general category people.
