Allegations of Forced Conversions in Madhya Pradesh’s Missionary Schools: A Concerning Issue of Child Rights.


Share post:

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) Chairman, Priyank Kanungo, has brought forth serious allegations against two Christian missionary schools situated in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh. Kanungo’s assertions point towards a disturbing trend of alleged forced conversions targeting Scheduled Tribe children in the region. He has voiced concerns over influential individuals aiding these purported conversion activities.

Kanungo’s statements shed light on the operations of certain organizations within Scheduled Tribe areas that purportedly engage in converting children to Christianity. These organizations allegedly receive support from influential figures, raising significant questions about the protection of child rights and religious freedom in the region.

Priyank Kanungo alleged that Scheduled Tribe children have been taught Christian prayers, which is wrong. He also talked about registering a case under JJ Act and Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act, 2021. Priyank Kanungo alleged that children below 10 years of age are being used to cut grass here. Toilets are being cleaned by them. He also talked about issuing a notice to the Chief Secretary of Madhya Pradesh Government.

The issue at hand is multifaceted, encompassing several areas of concern that demand urgent attention and thorough investigation.

  1. Child Rights and Protection:

The primary focus of the allegations revolves around the violation of child rights. Every child has the fundamental right to education, safety, and the freedom to practice or choose their religion without coercion or undue influence. Any attempt to force or manipulate minors into converting their faith goes against the principles of child rights and protection.

  1. Alleged Forced Conversions:

The accusation of forced conversions, particularly targeting Scheduled Tribe children, is a matter of grave concern. The vulnerability of these children within remote areas might make them susceptible to undue influence or coercion, amplifying the importance of safeguarding their rights and ensuring their protection from any form of exploitation or manipulation.
