The Centre for Policy Alternatives filed a petition in the Supreme Court on the 27th of July 2004, challenging the constitutionality of the Draft Bill tilted the ?Prohibition of Forcible Conversion of Religion?. The Bill prohibits the conversion of any person from one religion to another by use of force, allurement or fraudulent means. The Petitioner avers that the said Bill is inconsistent with the freedoms guaranteed by Article 10 and Article 14(1)(e) of the Constitution of Sri Lanka.
