Amid the festive season, it was ‘Ghar Wapsi’ for more than 100 persons belonging to the 20 Valmiki families who had renounced Hinduism to convert to other religions in Uttar Pradesh’s Khurja.

The ‘Ghar Wapsi’ programme was organised by Rashtriya Chetna Mission along with Valmiki Sangh with the help of local MLA Minakshi Singh.

“Those who had left ‘Sanatan Dharma’ some generations or years ago due to their situation or confusion were brought to the Hindu society again through the programme,” Singh said.

“They have taken an oath to pray to Sri Ram, Sri Krishna and other Sanatan gods and goddesses from now on,” she said.

“A ‘Ghar Wapasi’ programme in Sanatan Dharma has been organised by Vishwa Hindu Parishad, in which we are welcoming people who have come back to the Hindu religion,” Hemant Singh, president of Rashtriya Chetna Mission, said.

“Many people, who had converted to various religions due to some reasons, are now coming back to Sanatan Dharma,” Singh said.

Sandeep Valmiki, who had converted back to Hinduism, said, “I followed Christianity after my child’s health got better when I offered prayer to Jesus. But when my mother died, they forced us to perform the rituals according to Christianity. Although my mother wanted us to perform her last rites according to Hindu Dharma,” says Sandeep Valmiki.

The Rashtriya Chetna Mission and the VHP organised a religious retreat programme at Kalindi Kunj Colony in Khurja. Local MLA Singh welcomed the people who were returning to the Sanatan Dharma by garlanding them. “Around 100 people, who voluntarily converted to Islam were given the Vedic mantra and the legal process was also carried out,” Singh said.
