There is insufficient evidence available to prove that 205 Valmiki families have converted to Islam by force since 1996.
Previously in 2017, there was a controversy in Mewat where some Hindu students were allegedly forced to recite Quran and were pressed to convert to Islam. This resulted in the suspension of three teachers from that school. Even though this has no direct relation to the forcible conversions of members of the Valmiki community, many such incidents were reported in Mewat.
Dr. Subhan Khan, a retired government official, and patron of the Mewat Development Society said it was unfortunate that such reports are generated to spread propaganda. The Congress has termed the entire exercise a 'farce' to defame a particular community.
There are no official acknowledgments made by the Haryana state government with regards to the report submitted by the retired judge. The chief minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, said that he would bring in laws to ensure there were no forced conversions in the state.
