A Catholic bishop in Arunachal Pradesh has denied claims that some groups are forcibly converting Buddhists in the northeastern Indian state.
On May 21, two Buddhist groups in the Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh alleged groups associated with a faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland had engaged in forcible conversion practices, ucanews reported Wednesday. Bishop P.K. George of Miao, whose diocese covers the district, denied the allegations following a meeting of Baptists, Revivalists and Catholics at his residence.
However, the Salesian bishop also noted that “if there were such forceful conversions, the district’s deputy commissioner and superintendent of police will take care of them.”
