Hindu organisations entitled to facilitate people who willingly want to re-convert to Hinduism:Swamy


New Delhi, Dec 15: If anybody wants to re-covert to Hinduism he or she has the right to do so, said Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday.

"They have no law to stop the conversion and the government of Uttar Pradesh is in a total chaos. However, if anybody wants to re-covert and come back to Hinduism he is welcome and the RSS or the VHP any Hindu organization is entitled to organize a celebration or an occasion by which this can be facilitated," Swamy was quoted as saying in an ANI report.

Hindu organisations entitled to facilitate people who willingly wants to re-convert to Hinduism.
Dharma Jagran Samanvay Vibhag, an offshoot of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday claimed to have converted members of at least 57 Muslim families into Hinduism at a ceremony called 'Purkhon ki ghar vapsi' in Agra. The ceremony was jointly organised by Dharma Jagran Samanvay Vibhag and Bajrang Dal

Uproar continued in the Lok Sabha with almost all opposition parties demanding the suspension of the question hour and a discussion on the Agra "conversions".

Opposition BSP and Congress sought to corner the government over the reported conversion of Muslims to Hinduism in Agra, saying changing religion by force and by allurement was illegal.

Blaming the Government for the ongoing logjam in Rajya Sabha, Opposition parties today said their demand for a statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of conversion is "legitimate".

CPI-M leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sitaram Yechury said under the constitution the Prime Minister and the government is accountable to the Parliament and so he must give a statement before the House.

"They (the government) are responsible...the Prime Minister is not coming to the House. When there is terror in the country, emotions are flaring high, the Prime Minister should discuss the issue. He is accountable to the Parliament.
