Panaji: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) plans to re-convert Christians in Goa and is in the middle of an expansion drive in the state, a VHP leader said here on Friday.
Ahead of VHP`s golden jubilee function in the state, Dada Bedak, secretary in-charge of the Satsang (Spiritual Discourse) division, told media that the senior leaders would discuss issues like re-conversion, love jihad, etc. and how to approach them in next 50 years.
"Goa has so many Hindus who were converted during the Portuguese rule... We will look to re-converting them back to Hinduism," Vedak said.
Goa, a former Portuguese colony, has a population of 1.5 million of which 26 percent are Christians.
