Yes. God is in full control and by His will, the people of various religions are being created every second.

Thus by not allowing freedom of religion, one is acting against the will of God. Those who are against the will of God are wicked, unbelievers, faithless, and envious of God.

“Those who are envious, cruel, full of hate, and wicked, are the lowest among men. I repeatedly cast these evildoers into the wombs of demonic species. Such persons are foolish and can never approach me. Birth after birth, they enter into the wombs of demonic species, and gradually sink down to the lowest state of life.”

Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.19-20

There are some people who want to practice their religion/ideology everywhere in the world, but they don’t give the same right to others. This is called wickedness, and for such persons, God will be unknown/unseen and just an idea. Humans who cannot describe God are covered in complete ignorance, by their beliefs.
