The Shiv Sena Monday warned that “it will not tolerate” the ghar wapsi planned by RSS-affiliate Dharm Jagran Samiti in Aligarh on December 25 as any such reconversion of Muslims “will lead to genetic abnormalities in the Hindu community”. The Uttar Pradesh unit of the party said the actual ghar wapasi would be by sending Muslims to Pakistan.
“The Hindu and Muslim cultures do not match at all and those who consider this a homecoming, they should take lessons from the history. We welcome ghar wapasi (homecoming) only if it means that they (Muslims) are sent to Pakistan, because (Mohammad Ali) Jinnah has already created a home for them. It is time both nations exchange Hindus and Muslims, it is the only solution to this problem,” Shiv Sena UP head Anil Singh told The Indian Express.
He claimed “Hindus have always had a calm nature and have always respected other religions but Muslims are fanatics and revolting in nature”, to which he further added, “If Muslims convert or reconvert to Hinduism and then marry Hindus, it will lead to genetic abnormalities in the Hindu community”.
Singh said his party was also opposed to the alleged mass religious conversion that took place in Agra. A controversy had erupted recently after a group of 57 Muslim families in Agra alleged that they had been converted to Hinduism fraudulently. Earlier in October, to counter “the growing influence of other communities,” UP unit of Shiv Sena had announced a reward of Rs 21,000 to each Hindu family with 10 or more children but had subsequently backtracked.
