    Rourkela (Odisha), Feb 24 (PTI) The VHP today claimed that over 3,000 people of 658 families from three states were reconverted to Hinduism at a function held in Sundargarh district. People from Odisha and neighbouring Jharkhand and Chhattishgarh congregated at Sundargarh town where the function, described by the VHP as "home coming", was held yesterday. Several people, particularly poor and uneducated tribals and dalits had converted through allurement, international executive president of VHP Pravin Togadia said at the function demanding a strict law against conversion.

    This doesn't look like a voluntary conversion. If 'VHP' label remains stuck with anything, then there is something deceitful and dangerous behind it.

    How can someone be converted to Hinduism? AFAIK, hinduism out of all religions, dont have a fixed procedure and all to be made the conversion. If they were unhappy with whatever faith they were following, couldnt they just stop that and follow hindu god or whatever. HInduism is a way of life and there is no fixed method for the same.

    Cant understand the confusion of people when it comes to religion and similar stuff

    ^^ I agree killbill, Hinduism is a set of practices derived from the vedic tradition, anybody can practice it without changing their religious status.

    Thanks Osiris, I never knew about this procedure.

    BTW, is shuddhi only for reconversion back to Hinduism or also applies for fresh conversions too?

    Mass conversions will only prove interesting (and vulturally valid) when people start going atheist in droves.

    Till then, all of this stuff about "purification through conversion" and returning to blah is all exactly like the word "kffnnnpha".

    That is, its rubbish.

    Great job VHP :)

    Now they must focus more in UP before the deobandis and quami ekta turn it into the next afghnaistan (sharia and taliban courts)

    this was a mass conversion (of 3000+ persons) its is impossible to do such a mass conversion by force,any way why u term this as a forced conversion?

    Why would they left Hinduism in first place??
    For obvious reasons,there are social injustice and discrimination against dalits and tribals in India.When they convert themselves to another religion all hell break lose.What difference this reconversion will make on the life of these people other than changing names.These reconversion thing is nothing but a joke to me.
    BTW I am not a Muslim.
