The complainant later got to know that his daughter was abducted by the accused to marry and then forcibly convert her.

As per the police, the girl was missing since November 17, however, her family filed the case on December 17 after receiving a letter from the accused Javed’s lawyer. The lawyer had informed that their 21-year-old daughter had married Javed and converted to Islam in a court.

South Korean national held for forcibly converting people to Christianity

Four persons, including three women, were arrested in Uttar Pradesh’s Greater Noida on Saturday for allegedly luring people to convert into Christianity.

According to the reports, one of the arrested women is a South Korean national. She was staying on rent in Greater Noida and lured people to convert them into Christianity.

The accused lured local people for religious conversion in the past also, Central Noida’s Deputy Commissioner of Police Harish Chander said. The police have registered an FIR against the accused under the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Religious Conversion Law at the Surajpur police station and further proceedings are underway.

Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Religious Conversion Law

The new anti-conversion law is aimed at preventing forced conversions under the pretext of love, marriage and by coercion. “There were more than 100 incidents reported in which forceful religious conversion was being done. Also, it was reported religious conversions were going on in the state using deceitful means. So to make a law on this becomes an important matter of policy now,” UP Cabinet Minister Siddharth Nath Singh had earlier remarked.

Under the new law, a jail term of 1-5 years is awarded to the accused (extended to 3-10 years in case of SC/ST victims) and a fine of ₹15,000 (₹25,000 in case of SC/STs). Moreover, the offender’s proven guilt for conversion will attract a jail term of 10 years.
