But he lamented that the so-called secular parties will not come forward to support such a measure in Parliament due to their vote bank politics.

"There should be no forcible conversions and a good law should be brought in Parliament against it. I appeal to all other parties to support such a law. But I guarantee that except for BJP, no other party will favour this law due to their votebank politics," Shah said.

He agreed with Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu's appeal in Parliament that all parties should unite in bringing a law on forcible conversions but why oppose if people want to convert by themselves.

Shah's remarks assume significance in the context of a controversy triggered by Hindu Jagran Samiti, an RSS outfit which organised a 'ghar vapsi' programme in Agra to reconvert Muslims back to Hinduism.

Virtually disapproving of the controversial remarks of party MPs Sakshi Maharaj on Nathuram Godse and Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti's hate speech, Shah said BJP leaders should show restraint and stay away from making comments on such issues.

"Such comments come to limelight as BJP is now in power.I believe BJP MPs and leaders should stay away from such statements. They should adopt restraint," he said.

On the issue of 'Love Jihad', the BJP President said neither the party nor any of its leader has coined the word, which was a media creation.

"Love jihad is a media creation. It is purely an issue concerning exploitation of women. We oppose it. No BJP leader has ever used this word," he said.

On the issue of Ram temple, he said, the BJP's views are very clear that it can come up only through two means – either it will be constructed through consensus or through a court verdict.

Shah reiterated the party's resolve to make the country 'Congress-free' by 2019 and said the party will make this happen through its organisational strength in which the opposition party's 'weakness' will also aid it.

BJP will win Jammu and Kashmir polls: Amit Shah

Amit Shah said his party will win the the ongoing Jammu and Kashmir assembly polls as well as the West Bengal assembly elections scheduled for 2016.

"The media is still busy in dividing the voters of the state along religious lines. We are fighting the polls on issues like electricity, water and education...I am sure the BJP will win in Jammu and Kashmir," he said.

Expressing confidence that the BJP would register a thumping victory in West Bengal, he dismissed allegations by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee that the BJP is using the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to intimidate her.

"The accused in the Saradha scam as well as the Burdwan blast are related to the TMC (Trinamool Congress). If the CBI has a political motive then let Mamata ji say that these people are innocent," Shah said.

"I am confident that the BJP will fare very, very well in Bengal and we will be successful in forming a government there," Shah said.
