VHP to boost reconversion programme

via HK published on January 4, 2007

ROURKELA (ORISSA): The reconversion of Hindus is on the active agenda of the VHP in Sundergarh district.

The Viswa Hindu Parishad is vigorously pursuing the “home coming” of the tribals in the district. “We are planning to do it more intensively and in a well-coordinated manner,” a VHP office-bearer said here.

Since the “home coming” programme in Jharsuguda, where 350 persons were reconverted four years ago, there have been more than 15 such programmes by the VHP. A major aspect of the reconversion programme is that nobody is complaining about it.

The local Congress leaders are in a quandary as they fear that opposing such mass re-conversion may not go well with the majority community. But the minorities are displeased that nobody is objecting to such practices.

In the past four years, more than 2,000 tribals have gone through the process of “home coming”.
