The Sindh Assembly on Thursday adopted a bill against forceful religious conversions.
The bill recommends a five year punishment for perpetrators and facilitators of forceful religious conversions.
The bill, called Sindh Criminal Law (Protection of Minorities) Bill, 2015, was proposed by PML-F’s Nand Kumar Golkani.
Under the newly passed bill, forcibly converting a minor is also a punishable offense. Facilitators of these conversions will also get five years.
Adults will be given 21 days to reconsider their decision to convert.
