Religious Conversion in India - 05 Sep 2014
Emboldened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rise to power in May, leaders of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have joined right-wing activists to openly declare India a nation of Hindus, posing a challenge to its multi-faith constitutional commitment.

"We will cleanse our Hindu society. We will not let the conspiracy of church or mosque succeed in Bharat (India)," Hindu activist Rajeshwar Singh said, standing in the family's front yard by a ritual fire lit to purify the poor, lower-caste converts.

About a fifth of India's 1.27 billion people identify themselves as belonging to faiths other than Hinduism.
