A right-wing group disrupting Friday namaz being held in the open on Sunday asked Muslims to “reconvert” and pray in Hindu temples.

Ancestors of a majority of Haryana Muslims belonged to Hindu community, said Mahaveer Bhardwaj, chairman of the Sanyukt Sangharsh Samiti, a body of 32 right-wing Hindu outfits.

“We can organise a mass ‘ghar wapsi’ in Leisure Valley here and they will be taken back in their castes and accepted with open arms,” Bharadwaj said.

“They will have their temples to pray and this namaz issue will end,” he added.
