Religious conversions in Ladakh: Tracing the crux of the Muslim-Buddhist problem


1Tension is simmering in Ladakh over allegations of forcible conversions of Buddhist girls to Islam. The Muslims community has made a counter claim. The Ladakh Buddhist Association has said that their pleas to the government have fallen on deaf ears and they plan to petition the Prime Minister on the issue. With tension simmering the Muslim community too has sought for protection.

Ladakh has seen violent clashes in the past and the LBA had called for a boycott of all Muslims. The same was however lifted later on.
