Ghar Wapsi: VHP says it has brought 25,000 Muslims and Christians back to Hinduism in 2018

VHP's secretary-general Miling Parande stated that the organisation wants the central government to bring strict ant-conversion laws. It also stated that it is expecting a 'positive verdict' in the Ram Janmabhoomi case from the Supreme Court.

A Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader on Saturday stated that the Hindu cultural organisation has managed to reconvert 25,000 Muslims and Christians back to Hinduism in 2018.

Speaking to media, VHP’s secretary-general stated that the organisation had conducted drives for reconversion across the country. Such events are called ‘Ghar-Wapsi’, meaning coming back to the original faith.

“25,000 Muslims and Christians were reconverted in 2018,” he said, adding that figures for 2019 were yet to be compiled.

Addressing a press conference, Parande said conversion was a national problem. He added that mass-conversions into Islam and Christianity are also an attack on the country and a conspiracy to divide its people. He said that the VHP wants the government to bring strict anti-conversion laws.

Reacting to the Ram Janmabhoomi case, Parande said the VHP was expecting a ‘positive verdict’ in favour of the Hindu side from the Supreme Court as all the archaeological facts supported the case for the existence of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Parande also said an amendment was needed to the Citizenship Bill to secure the interests of Hindus in the country.
