Thane, Oct 27 (ANI): A group of 6,000 Christians got reconverted and took to Hinduism at a function held in Thane on Monday.

The Hindus who had converted said that they were disenchanted which in turn prompted them to revert back to their earlier faith.

They said that promises of houses and other luxuries had tempted to take up Christianity.

"I don't have any problem. But they (Christian missionaries) tempted us. They promised us houses. We stayed with them for two years. Our religion is good," said Ram D'souza.

Swami Narendra Maharaj, head of a Hindu sect and organiser of this programme mentioned that he was on a mission to save Hindus who were misguided by Christian missionaries.

"Christian missionaries are carrying out conversion of religion. So we need to stop them," said Swami Narendra Maharaj.

This is the second function to take place this year.

In April, this Hindu seer, Swami Narendra Maharaj spearheading a religious campaign against Christians had reportedly converted about 1130 Christians. And last year, also in the month of April, over 1700 Christians were brought back to Hindu fold by him.

It is also claimed by Swami Narendra Maharaj and his followers that they intend to re-convert 100 thousands of people into Hindu faith. (ANI)
