Over 200 persons, mostly belonging to Christian families, in various parts of Kerala have reconverted to Hinduism as part of the ‘ghar vapsi’ (home coming) programme of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Christmas day, VHP sources today said.

Kottayam district topped in the re-conversion ceremony with 73 persons participating in it at Puthiyakavu Devi temple in Ponkunnam and Sri Krishna Swamy temple at Thirunakari yesterday.

The sources said 11 members of Muslim community also converted to Hinduism.

VHP State General Secretary, V Mohan, in a statement claimed “none was being forcibly converted. Those who want to convert to Hinduism on their own will are only being helped to do so.”

According to the sources, today also reconversions are taking place in various parts of the state and this was a “regular ongoing process.”
