ABSTRACT:
Religious conversion is a process of turning a person to another religion leaving one’s own religion. The person who embraces another religion is called a ‘convert’ and those who make to others to embrace another religion is called a ‘converter’. In day-to-day language this activity is called vatal (contaminating one’s religion) or ‘conversion’ and is taken to be a derogatory activity. The conversion of tribals in India is a peculiarly social issue and a social problem.
