UP: District administrations here were on their toes after VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi allegedly performed "Ghar Wapsi" (reconversion) of a youth here.

At a programme organised by VHP to mark its golden jubilee year, Sadhvi Prachi carried out "Ghar Vapsi" of the youth.

As soon as the administration officials came to know about it, they took the youth identified as Rajan Puri into their custody.

Police and administration officials took away the youth to the collectorate to record his statements while the VHP activists resorted to agitation demanding his statements be taken at the place of meeting.

The hour-long drama ended after the youth was brought back to the meeting spot.

Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Rakesh Patel said, "The youth in his statement has said he had adopted Islam in 2006 when he had married a Muslim girl. However, today he re-adopted Hindu religion without any pressure or allurement."

"The administration will serve a notice on the organizers as they had failed to intimate the authorities about this programme," he said.

Earlier, Sadhvi Prachi in her address spoke against "Love Jihad" and appealed to follow "Hum Do Hamare Char (We Two Ours Four)" policy to save the country.

She said she was against religious conversion and advocated law to check it.

However, she strongly championed for "Ghar Wapsi" saying "1,400 years ago, only ancestors of Ram and Krishna existed here". She also appealed youths to avoid western culture which promoted Valentine's Day.
