New Delhi: With the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) reportedly converting over 100 Christians in Gujarat, the Delhi Catholic Archdiocese on Sunday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s silence on the ongoing religious conversion row.

"Modi is forgetting that he is the PM of the whole country, that he is the PM of Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, Jews and everybody, not just of RSS," Delhi Catholic Archdiocese spokesperson Father Dominic Emmanuel said.

"He may be a RSS man but even the larger Hindu public does not support this kind of thing which we know," he added.

Meanwhile, VHP chief Ashok Singhal said that a Hindu society should be built which works for the benefit of the world based on its traditions.

"All the other religious powers, which are formed, do not work for the world," he added.

Earlier this month, around 200 people were reportedly converted to Hinduism in a ceremony in Agra by groups linked to the BJP`s ideological mentor RSS.
