Stoking a fresh controversy after conversion plans in Aligarh, Hindu outfit Dharm Jagran Manch, which had planned a conversion programme in Aligarh, said that it plans to “finish” Islam and Christianity by 2021.
“We have so far ensured ‘ghar wapsi’ (reconversion) of three lakh Muslims and Christians back to Hinduism. By 2021, we will finish Islam and Christianity,” Manch head Rajeshwar Singh Singh said here on Thursday.
“We have not done any conversion. We have ensured ‘ghar wapsi’. Why they (political parties) did not utter a word when Hindus are converted? What’s their objection when we ensure that they come back to the religion?” he asked.
His organisation had planned a mass conversion programme in Aligarh on the Christmas day but later called it off.
On Agra conversion, he said that those converted were Indians and not Bangladeshis and they had affidavits of those who participated in the programme.
