Surat: Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Pravin Togadia on Friday claimed that his organisation had re-converted more than five lakh Christians and 2.5 lakh Muslims to Hinduism in the last ten years.
Speaking at a function here today, Togadia also called for a mass drive to continue this "Ghar Wapsi" to save the Hinduism in India.
"Within last ten years, we did Ghar Wapsi of more than five lakh Christians and 2.5 lakh Muslims. Our rate of Ghar Wapsi used to be around 15,000 each year. But last year, we have crossed the mark of 40,000, which is excluding the figures of RSS," said Togadia, the international working president of VHP.
"If Hindus need to be in majority in India and to save our religion, we have to engage in many more Ghar Wapsi drives to bring crores of others into our religion," said Togadia, who was here to take part in VHP's fund raising event.
During his brief interaction with media afterwards, the right-wing leader also demanded that all the Hindus of Pakistan should be given Indian citizenship. He also reiterated that Ram temple will definitely be constructed in Ayodhya.
"Ram temple will be built in Ayodhya, and there is no doubt about it. To build it, the Parliament must bring a law," he said.
