Bhopal: A day after Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat made a strong pitch for Hindu awakening and described India as a nation of the Hindus, senior Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Praveen Togadia on Sunday said that his assertion is like "gospel" for VHP.
Speaking at a convention here, Togadia asserted that the world was once inhabited by Hindus only, and that the right-wing organisation will make all efforts to increase the population of Hindus in India to 100 percent from 82 percent.
"We will not tolerate the size of Hindu population to cut to half, we will not tolerate Hindus becoming a minority in the country," Togadia said addressing the function.
Reiterating VHP's opposition to 'Love Jihad', Togadia said it is a conspiracy against the Hindus and that his outfit wants to eradicated the social evil of caste from Hindu society.
The comments came close on the heels of the remark made by Bhagwat that those who were converted earlier could be allowed to go back to their traditional faith.
Bhagwat, in the Kolkata rally, had dared the Opposition to support the passage of the anti-conversion law to stop it all from happening.
He had also said those who were converted earlier could be allowed to go back to their traditional faith without using the much-criticised term 'ghar vapsi'.
However, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday made it clear that if people are converting voluntarily then there should be no issue in it, but if force is being used then state government should take action.
