Chandigarh (Haryana, India), December 23 (KMS): A Hindu group has asked the Muslims to leave Islam and join Hinduism in Hindutva-dominated Indian state of Haryana.
Mahaveer Bhardwaj, chairman of the Sanyukt Sangharsh Samiti, an amalgam of 32 Hindu outfits, said they can organise a ‘ghar wapsi’ (home coming) event in Leisure Valley in the town for Muslims to “be taken back in their castes and accepted with open arms”, says a report by Indian official news agency, Press Trust of India (PTI).
The Hindutva groups have often been making claims that Indian Muslims’ ancestors were Hindus and hence ask them to “reconvert” to Hinduism.
Once they come into Hindu fold, Bhardwaj said, “they will have their temples to pray and this namaaz issue will end in Gurgaon once and for all”.
For the last three months, the Hindutva groups have been attacking Muslims congregating at the sites designated by local authorities for namaaz in Gurgaon city. The police have been accused of looking the other way even as the lumpen elements disrupt the namaaz by sloganeering and issuing threats.
