Shimla: Suspected members of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Sunday stopped a prayer meeting of Christians at Pulhara area of Solan district alleging conversions, media reports said.
The later police found the allegation baseless, according to a report in the Times of India.
Intrusion of VHP members into the prayer meeting had resulted in tension as those present there had resisted the move. But before the situation could turn violent someone had informed the police.
Organizers of the prayer meeting claimed that they had been meeting every Sunday for a long time and stopping them from doing so was against the law.?
On Monday VHP submitted a memorandum to Himachal Pradesh governor Urmila Sinngh on the issue of love jihad and conversions.
The memorandum said that till 15 years back there was not even a single instance of conversion or love jihad in Himachal Pradesh, but now the same is on the rise.
Reacting to the reports on ‘love jihad’, chief minister Virbhadra Singh said that till now not even a single case had come to his notice. “But if there had been any such case, it should be brought forward so that inquiry could be conducted,” he added.
