Hindus claim 'reconversion' of 100 Christians in Indian villages

January 19, 2015

Hindu nationalists in India’s state of Kerela have reported that more than 100 people renounced Christianity and returned to their Hindu roots, in two separate ceremonies on January 18.

The Hindu leaders arranged ceremonies in the towns of Elappara and Kayamkulam, welcoming back members of 47 different families, they said. The names of the individual who “reconverted” were not disclosed.

Hindu activists have encouraged Christians to leave their faith behind, while also complaining that Christian missionaries offer inducements to impoverished people to entice them into the Christian communities.
