'If someone accepts a religion on their own there shouldn't be objections but mass conversion is a matter of concern for any country. If you’re Hindu be Hindu,Muslim be Muslim,Christian be Christian.Why do you want to convert the whole world?,' Rajnath Singh said.


He also said that as far as the government is concerned there will not be discrimination with anybody or with any religion.

Singh said there are attempts to create a sense of fear among people.

"BJP aa gayi. Ab gadbad hoga, ye hoga wo hoga (BJP has come. Now this or that will happen). We do not want to run the country by instilling a sense of fear. We want to run this country with a sense of confidence (among people). Nobody should have a sense of alienation. This will be our efforts," he said, adding that "all are welcome in the country".
