Will not allow conversion of Hindus: Praveen Togadia
Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international working president Praveen Togadia Sunday said they would not allow conversion of even a single Hindu to any other religion.
Hyderabad: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international working president Praveen Togadia Sunday said they would not allow conversion of even a single Hindu to any other religion.
Addressing a public meeting here as part of VHP golden jubilee celebrations, he voiced concern over what he called declining population of Hindus in the country.
Claiming that population of Hindus has come down from 100 percent to 82 percent, the VHP leader expressed the apprehension that this may come down to 42 percent.
Stating that India is a "Hindu rashtra", Togadia vowed not to allow cow slaughter, 'love jihad' and 'four wives tradition'. He called for enforcing common civil code in the country and sending back three crore Bangladeshi intruders.
The VHP leader said they were ready to embrace all Muslims and Christians who want to "return". "Some got converted during Moghal rule and some during Victoria (British) rule. If they want to come back, we are ready to embrace them," he said.
Togadia said VHP was trying to regain honour and dignity of Hindus and to make them safe and secure. He also appealed to Hindus to wake-up and join hands to take care of education and health needs of all poor Hindus and to stop cow slaughter.
Stating that golden jubilee was not a celebration for VHP, he said they would celebrate when a grand Ram temple will be constructed in Ayodhya and four lakh Hindus of Kashmir will return home.
Togadia warned Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government of Telangana against turning the state into "Nizam's rule" by providing reservations to Muslims. He said there was a need for administration which cares for Hindus.
