Either ban religious conversions or allow us to continue with ‘ghar wapsi’: Togadia tells Centre

ban all religious conversions

VHP leader Pravin Togadia has said that religious re-conversion would continue until the Centre banned such practice.

Delivering a keynote address at ‘Virat Hindu Hridaya Sangama’ at Puttur near here last evening, Togadia said Hindus could no longer be silent on conversions which resulted in the “dwindling” of their population.

“We want the government to either ban religious conversions or allow us to go ahead with our re-conversion programmes,” he said.

The NDA Government, facing opposition heat over the ‘ghar vapsi’ (home coming) programme of Sangh parivar outfits in some parts of the country, has already stated its willingness to bring an anti-conversion law and called for the support of all parties to the law.

Togadia said a uniform civil code should be introduced in the country and the government should bring in a rule to ensure that every couple, irrespective of religion, could have only two children.

He also called upon the Hindus to fight what was being called ‘Love Jihad’ which was “ruining” the identity of the nation.

Over four lakh Hindu families in Kashmir who got converted under “pressure”, should be brought back to their religion, he said.

RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat presided over the function. Other religious leaders like Rajashekharananda Swamiji of Gurpur Vajradehi Math and Odiyoor Sri Gurudevananda Swamiji were also present at the event.
