Is the aspect of not allowing religious conversion make Parsi and Jewish superior religions?

[Shri Anil asked: Two religions namely Parsi and Jewish religion do not convert any person from other religions, because the people coming from ancestral linage only can become by birth a member of their religion. No outsiders are allowed. Is this aspect make them superior religions as this avoids conflict with other religions?]

Swami replied: I don’t know whether the two religions prohibit their followers to quit their religions! Anyway, neither prohibition of entry nor prohibition of leaving the religion shall be there. In such free atmosphere, there shall be no conversion from one religion to the other realizing that the unimaginable God present in different media of different religions is one and the same and hence, change of religion shall be viewed as the biggest mockery!
