Udupi: Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmer Welfare Shobha Karandlaje said Temples, Mosques and Churches are our prayer centres, and therefore their safety should be a top priority but if they were built in illegal places, the government should convince the locals and make an alternate arrangement.

Speaking to mediapersons on Friday, Shobha Karandlaje said, “Demolishing any religious centre is not acceptable. If the centres are built in unauthorised places, the government should convince the locals and the authorities concerned to demolish them. People have faith in religious places, and when their sentiments are hurt, they obviously will protest. Hurting any religion or community is not good for us. The government should first convince the people”, she appealed.

Ms Karandlaje further said, “The Conversion activities across the country have drastically increased. A strict law should be brought against conversions. The state and the central governments should take action against such activities”.
