Muslim family that converted to Hinduism stops puja after getting threats

A Muslim family of 17 members, which converted to Hinduism last week, has stopped following Hindu rituals after they received threats from anti-social elements.

This incident of a Muslim family converting to Hinduism is different from the much talked about Agra Gharwapasi event, which stalled parliament for days and led to various TV news debates earlier.

The latest incident involving family of one Rahmat, took place on December 25 in Davli village under Malpura police station as reported by Amar Ujala.

Rahmat’s family had started doing puja-paath (worship as per Hindu rituals) and had installed statues of Hindu gods at their residence on the same day.

However, they soon started getting threats, following which police was deployed in the village. Local authorities too visited the families, and ever since then, the family is not speaking to anyone.

It should be noted that on December 26, an Urdu newspaper named Roznama Urdu Times, had published an article that argued that any Muslim who leaves the religion of Islam and accepts another religion could be killed.

The article argued that killing of such a person was sanctioned in Quran and was approved by Prophet Mohammad too. The article can be read here.

It can’t be coincidence that the Rahmat family started getting threats after this article was published. And now they are too scared to speak up about the whole incident.

But instead of tracking and punishing those who issued threats to the family, the Uttar Pradesh police and authorities appear busy tutoring Rahmat and his family members to disown the conversion.

Currently the family members are not speaking to anyone, but we will not be surprised if they suddenly start saying that they were “forced” to change their religion. After all who would like to take risk when an article in newspaper says the family is fit to be killed?

And as always, the mainstream media, especially the leading English TV news channels of India, are not reporting either this incident of threat to the family or the hateful article published in the Urdu newspaper.
