Srinagar, Nov 19: To prevent worsening of law and order situation in the wake of blasphemous depictions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on social networking site Facebook and alleged conversion by Christian missionaries, government has lodged an FIR against incharge Churches in Kashmir, Mr Khanna.
Pastor C M Khanna, who was accused of converting young boys and girls, has reportedly made his confession before a group of 15 Islamic scholars and representatives of various religious groups headed by the Grand Mufti of Kashmir, Mufti Mohammad Bashiruddin.
The Senior Superintendent Police Srinagar, Ashiq Bukhari said that FIR No 186 of 2011 under section 153 A and 295 A have been registered against Mr Khanna in police station Ram Munshi Bagh.
“Investigations into the reports of alleged conversion by Mr Khanna are on and some arrests are expected soon,” Bukhari said.
Sources told that Mr Khanna will be arrested within a day or two. “Mr Khanna has been accused of luring people to convert to Christianity against money. He is also accused of using blasphemous words,” sources alleged.
Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs, Ali Mohammad Sagar said that government will not allow any person or group to create disharmony. “J&K is known for communal harmony and co-existence of religion. Any person who will try to create hatred or ill-will against any religion will not be spared, but will be dealt under law,” Sagar said.
Regarding the complaint that an individual has hurt the sentiments of a community, he said, “It will be dealt under law and appropriate strict legal action will be taken against him. Government is sensitive about the media reports about conversion and has taken serious note of it. A probe has been ordered into it,” he added.
The Minister said that there was freedom to every person whatsoever his religion is. “Everyone should cooperate to maintain the peace,” he appealed.
Sagar said that government was investigating and trying to ascertain whether there is any conspiracy in the issue.
