Hindutva group seeks donations for Aligarh ‘conversion camp’
Undated pamphlets of Dharam Jagaran Samiti seeks a donation of Rs. 5 lakh for converting a Muslim and Rs. 2 lakh for the “ghar vapsi” of a Christian.
Mohammad Ali | The Hindu | Meerut | December 12, 2014:: Ahead of its plans to organise the “biggest ever conversion camp” in Aligarh on December 25, Dharam Jagaran Samiti, a western U.P.-based Hindutva group, on Thursday sought donations to organise the camp.
The undated letters and pamphlets, addressed by Rajeshwar Singh who claimed that conversion is a “costly” affair, have found their way to people’s homes in Aligarh.
The letter seeks a donation of Rs. 5 lakh for converting a Muslim and Rs. 2 lakh for the “ghar vapsi” of a Christian.
“Ghar vapsi is a costly affair because there are lots of expenses involved. The money comes from society and people indeed give money for the purpose. But when it’s done at a large scale, then more and more volunteers will have to be deployed to raise fund and organise camps,” Mr. Singh said in the letter.
” About Rs. 5 lakh is spent on the Ghar vapsi of a Muslim and Rs. 2 lakh for that of a Christian, when a volunteer works for the purpose in a year. That is why I request you to donate money and bear expenses of at least one programme,” he requested in the letter.
In an effort to establish his credentials, Mr. Singh also claimed that about 40,000 people, including 2000 Muslims in 20 districts of western UP, have been brought under the fold of Hinduism through his ‘ghar vapsi’ camps. The target is to convert one lakh people, the letter claimed.
Meanwhile, a non bailable warrant was issued by an Agra court against Kishor Valmiki, the main accused in the alleged conversion case in Agra. [Courtesy: The Hindu].
The Hindu Existence Forum (HEF) observes that the Dharam Jagaran Samiti’s (under RSS) ‘Re-Conversion’ programme of Aligarh areas on 25th Dec. 2014 has no illegality at all. Those who were compelled to leave their own faith under any unpalatable situation can obviously return to their own faith without any pressure and allurements. The call of the hearts and the problems of rootlessness cannot be undermined any way. This forum (HEF) is announcing hereby to declare to donate Rs.10,000=00 (Rupees Ten Thousand) to Dharam Jagaran Samiti for their great movements of Hindu Dharma for rehabilitating the marginal people of our blood staying in a rootless condition. Our viewers desirous to add more donation to the great activities through us for strengthening the Hindu activism to establish Dharma in its glorious stature, can send their donation to the account below related to Hindu Empowerment. And the prospective brothers and sisters ready to return to their ancestral faith of Mighty Hindu Dharma are most welcome. Swagatam!
