PATNA: After the controversial Agra re-conversions, BJP MP Yogi Adityanath has said ‘Ghar Wapsi’ (return to home) programmes would be organised in other parts of the country too.
“There is nothing wrong in returning to the original religion and this is ghar wapsi” the MP told mediapersons, adding that those who opposed it were against Hindutva.
After attending a Dharm Samagam at Vaishaligarh in Vaishali district of Bihar on Sunday, Adityanath clarified that ‘ghar wapsi’ was home coming and not religious conversion.
Some saffron organisations have recently organised a function in Agra in which some Muslims converted to Hinduism. They had planned a similar programme on a large-scale at Aligarh.
“We will try to integrate people returning back to Hinduism” said Gopal Narayan Singh, former BJP state president, who accompanied Adityanath.
Adityanath, who was elected from Gorakhpur constituency in Uttar Pradesh, also accused the Bihar government of being anti-Hindu in its functioning.
Criticising Adityanath’s statement JD(U) spokesperson Ajay Alok said, “Now the BJP has got exposed and this is the real character of the party. They were talking for an inclusive society during the elections, what happened to that now?,” he said.
