New Delhi, Jan 2: Rajeshwar Singh who is the convenor of the Dharm Jagran Samanway Samiti which has been spearheading the ‘ghar wapsi' or the conversion campaign in Uttar Pradesh, has reportedly been sent 'on leave.' Reports are also saying that the 55-year-old RSS pracharak has been 'dumped' by the RSS.
"There has been much pressure on me in the past few days. It has spoiled my health. I want to rest at home now," the long-time RSS pracharak was quoted as saying in an ET report.
The Dharm Jagran, a Sangh affiliate, has been conducting a ‘ghar wapsi' campaign to "return" Muslims and Christians to the Hindu fold.
Dharam Jagran had converted members of at least 57 Muslim families into Hinduism at a ceremony called 'Purkhon ki ghar vapsi' in Agra in December.
Another ceremony was also planned where nearly 5,000 more Muslims and Christians were to be "brought back into Hindu fold" in Aligarh on December 25, 2014.
Uproar over the Agra ceremony forced cancellation of this ceremony by Rajeshwar Singh in Aligarh.
"We have re-converted 2.73 lakh Muslims and Christians in Braj region that includes Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, Mathura, Firozabad, Etah, Meerut, Mainpuri and Uttarakhand since 2003.
The upcoming mass re-conversion event in which some 5,000 Muslims and Christians will be brought back into Hindu fold will be headed by Yogi Adityanath on December 25 in Aligarh," Singh was earlier quoted as saying in a daily.
Earlier there were reports which said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi was miffed at the activities and statements of RSS, VHP and other hardline Hindu leaders which is maligning the government which in turn is hampering the NDA's motto of good governance.
