News of the anti conversion film comes shortly Christian told BosNewsLife that the state government plans to launch what he called a Hindu-led “anti conversion program.” The film includes a shot of two fighting dogs. “You cannot change their nature”, a voice-over says. Soon after a picture of a cow quietly grazing emerges with the voice saying: “You cannot make this cow a non-vegetarian”. The screen blanks out and the voice adds: “So why attempt to change someone’s religion?” The scene is followed by the text of legal provisions that render forced religious conversions as illegal. Officials have reportedly denied this is part of a government-led campaign, and suggested that no subsidies have been given for the project.
