Orissa to change religious freedom law

September 15, 2008 20:26 IST

The Orissa government said on Monday that religious conversion was one of the factors behind the unrest in tribal-dominated Kandhamal district and promised to change the state's law relating to religious freedom.

"Religious conversion is certainly an issue in Kandhamal. We will deeply study the Orissa Freedom of Religion Act and make changes where required," state Home Secretary T K Mishra said after a review meeting in Bhubhaneshwar.
