Mumbai: Nilesh Rane, son of Maharashtra Congress strongman Narayan Rane, on Tuesday courted controversy when he advocated religious conversion in a post on social networking website Twitter.

Referring to the siege at a cafe that took place in Australia's biggest city, Sydney, on Monday, Nilesh said India needs to focus on converting people to Hinduism in the light of the incident.

He tweeted:

The controversial remarks came amidst the ongoing row over religious conversion related incidents in Uttar Pradesh.

RSS-linked organisation Dharma Jagran Manch has been accused of carrying out forced re-conversion of Muslims to Hinduism using allurements, like identity cards.

The issue has generated much heat in Parliament, with Opposition not allowing both the Houses to function until Prime Minister Narendra Modi makes a statement on the matter.
