Kochi – The Prime Minister’s silence on religious reconversion creates apprehension, said the Syro Malabar Church in a press release issued in connection with the Synod of the Church which began at Mount St Thomas, Kakkanad, on Monday.

The Syro Malabar Church does not support forced conversion or tempting the poor and needy people for conversion by offering certain benefits, reported newindianexpress.com.

“It is unfortunate that those in power using loopholes facilitate religious reconversion,” Church authorities said.

“It is the humanitarian activities carried out by the Church that often attract people to Christian faith. By making India a a secular country, the visionaries behind Constitution dreamed of an India built on good values of each religion,” they said.

Forty two bishops and administrators of Satna and Mandya dioceses are attending the five-day synod at Mount St Thomas, Kakkanad.
