The video has gone viral on the internet, as many people have come forward to suggest alternatives to denying Hinduism. A user, while agreeing with his freedom to practice any religion, added that this act causes pollution in the river. Another user added to the conversation that it was okay for them to follow Buddhism, however, he further pointed out that throwing idols and pictures of Hindu deities into the river and circulating the act was wrong taste.

Mass conversion of Dalits to Buddhism has taken place across the country as previous reports of mass conversion of Dalits to Buddhism were revealed by Delhi’s Dhamma Deeksha Samaroh Buddha, where a mass of Dalits can be seen engaging to renounce the worship of Hindu deities and adopting Buddhism.

According to reports, many accounts of converts suggested that they took the path of Buddhism after facing caste-based discrimination. The notion of Dalits converting to Buddhism was passed on by Dr BR Ambedkar who had himself converted to Buddhism after encountering caste-based discrimination.

Following the Delhi incident, a dispute between the Aam Aadmi Party and the Bhartiya Janata Party erupted as an AAP leader attended the mass conversion event. The leader of the AAP, following the incident, had to resign on 9 October.

The BJP had filed a complaint against AAP leader Rajendra Pal Gautam for trying to incite communal tensions and spread religious hatred in the country.
