A woman filed a case against a 30-year-old man who allegedly forcing her for conversion to Islam. The incident took place in the Dhoraji town of Rajkot district in Gujarat. The accused has been identified as Muhammad alias Dado Gani Sami. He is a garage owner and resident of the Radhanagar area.
"The woman told police that she had been in contact with Sami for the last one-and-a-half year. He sent her some religious verses on Instagram and forced her into marriage. He allegedly asked her to accompany him to a maulvi to perform the formal ceremony to convert into Islam but as she did not want to change her faith, she approached the police,'' a senior official told Times of India.
After the complaint, the accused has been booked under the amended Gujarat Freedom of Religion Act. This is the first offence registered under the amended Act in Rajkot district after the State Legislative Assembly passed it.
