1,800 Christian tribals Re-Embrace Hnduism in Mumbai

published on April 29, 2008


Mumbai, April 27: Around 1,800 Christian tribals on Sunday re-converted to Hinduism in the presence of spiritual leader Swami Narendracharya at suburban Borivali.

Talking to the media on the occasion, Narendracharya, popularly known as Narendra Maharaj, claimed so far he had reconverted 42,220 people, mostly from tribal areas of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Maharashtra, into Hinduism. It includes 1793 people who underwent reconversion rituals today.

About his drive, Maharaj said it was deplorable that Hindus had to be reconverted to Hinduism. He said he was not opposed to anybody practising any other religion, but the missionaries were “luring and misleading” the ordinary Hindus to convert them.

“An anti-conversion law is needed…..Nobody should be converted, whatsoever be his religion.”

He said Hindus were being “marginalised” because they don’t have any patrons. “We need to build a pressure group so that our interests are guarded.”

Saying it had become fashionable to abuse Hinduism, he criticised the Sethusamudram Project. “Where is the need to demolish the Ram Setu? It is being done to take revenge for demolition of Babri Masjid,” he said.
