Supreme Court refuses to refer conversion issue to Law Commission

Senior advocate Dushyant Dave says the petition contained ‘unpalatable’
The Supreme Court on Friday refused a plea to refer to the Law Commission of India the question of whether “forcible conversion” should be made a separate offence relating to religion under the Indian Penal Code. The Chief Justice’s query was in response to a submission by senior advocate Arvind Datar, appearing for Ashwini Upadhyay, that forcible conversion ought to be made an offence under Chapter 15 (offences relating to religion) in the Penal Code.
