THANE: In a major setback to the Christian missionaries, involved in conversion of Hindus in the country since decades, about 1130 Christian families adopted Hinduism during a function at Kalyan in the district recently.
The conversion was solemnised in the presence of Jagadguru Narendra Maharaj and thousands of people admist chanting of hymns and sounds of the conch shells.
Talking to reporters durint the event on Saturday last, the spiritual guru said the government should work towards giving reservations to people with poor socio-economic status instead on basis of cast, creed and religion.
He also lambasted all the political parties saying that none worked for the interest of the Hindus but tried to appease them only during the elections.
Jagadguru also appealed to all the Hindus to keep aside their political affiliation and vote for the party that worked for the community.
He also expressed serious concern over the rapid conversion of Hindus to Christianity after being 'bribed' by the missionaries, he said if this continued then the day is not far away when the Hindus would become minorities in their own land.
He also urged all the spiritual gurus to come out of their Ashram's and take up mass awakening programme for the Hindus to stop them from adopting any other religion and work towards the spreading Hinduism.
