Organised conversion is carried out through many strategies.
False promises to people without education and knowledge.the tribals, Fishing folk, hopeless people with terminable illness, alcoholism or misbehaviour of husband, utter poverty or disability etc
Arranging financial Support by way of job, social security, skill training, old age homes, orphanage etc aided by foreign funds. Utilizing people like Mother Theresa even without their knowledge.
By force and terrorism where they are in power or in the majority. They want secularism where they are minority, and religious nation where they are a majority!

Some do because of money
some due to change of heart
some due to facing crisis in life

Answer is simple. They convert because they can. Reasons could be many. Forced, alliance, validate more than one spouse, brainwash, money, hunger, better life, education and so on. Won't like to comment on praying part of question. But life does change for most, I guess.

It has become more a fashion than a purpose, because such folks get lure for something or the other by so many factors....!

A rolling stones never gather any moss......and isiliye GITA mein kaha gaya ki........
Swadharme Nidhanah Shreyah
Paradharmah Bhayabah .....

and those which accept conversion are never pious at heart.....rather are opportunists.....they can never prove loyal to their new religion too......

The reasons for change may be many, but prominently they are only two.. one is poverty, and other is Love for life. Many people embraced Budhhism because untouchability was imposed over them.. plus poverty. Many turn to Christianity because of poverty, and assurance of job after change in religion. Many love affairs also compel one of them to change religion. In history we find many changed religion to save life of family.
I feel that change of religion does not changes their life completely, but after some years their mindset is completely changed.

We are what we are , by chance and not by choice.
the best is to research and then take a decision that we feel is correct and good.
we can inherit money or wealth from parents , but religion is something we must research. we cannot give a blank look to god when he questions. so we must be sure of what we practise. do a complete research and go for the religion that you find is correct , logical and scientific

Many religions are playing with the sentiment to convert them towards their religion and they use to offer many lucrative things to attract them by understanding to others needs as temporary ........... I will say there is one GOD who is almighty always , as we can't meet him, so he has sent parents as their real representative ............ but unfortunately many are unable to understand to this ........
