Firebrand BJP MP Yogi Adityanath has stoked a fresh controversy saying VHP's 'Ghar Wapsi' programme will continue unless conversions are banned and claimed India's problem was "vote bank politics fuelled by jehadi fervour".
The right wing group has said it will 'motivate' mothers of Hindu boys to encourage their sons to marry girls from the Muslim and Christian communities.
The Sangh Parivar might be very pleased with its ghar vapsi exercise at the moment, but the real test for it lies in accommodating and locating the converts in the inflexible caste matrix.
The Janata Parivar on Monday protested against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi over various issues.
45-year old Chander Prakash Kaushik, all-India president of Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha speaks to Firstpost on Godse, reconversion, Hindu-Rashtra, etc.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Monday announced plans to convert 60 Muslim and Christian families to Hinduism in Rae Bareli, Congress president Sonia Gandhi's constituency.
As the RSS goes ahead with its communal agenda by raising issues like love jihad and ghar vapsi, civil society needs to acknowledge these problems and fight this hateful agenda.
The RSS plans a mega event on December 25 in Aligarh where they claim some 15,000 people will “return” to the folds of Hinduism.
A liberal society should neither ban religious conversions nor the offer of inducements for the same. But even so, it is worth noting the advantages traditionally proselytising religions have against non-proselytising religions like Hinduism.
