The Constitution of India envisages India as a Sovereign Socialist Democratic Republic with emphasis on ensuring justice, liberty, equality and freedom. It is often visualized that India has been threatened by the invasion of diverse religious cultures which have disintegrated the secular character. The 42nd amendment to the Constitution added the word "secular" and emphasized that state has no religion nor does it propagate any religion. Each individual has freedom of choice to practice profess, and propagate any religion and it has been granted by Article 25 of the Constitution of India. The conflict since between religions and people practicing the faith continue in an attempt to allure people from other faiths into one's own religion by convincing them, forcing them, to convert. The moot/ core issue: 1. Weather conversion is valid, permissible within the purview of Article 25 of the Constitution of India 2. Weather conversion is anti- religious and amounts to excommunication from the society. The researchers have analyzed Article 25 of the Constitution of India and its various implications to evolve few conclusions in support of the statement that everyone has Freedom of religion.
