Press Trust of India
Ajmer, February 16
As many as 586 families residing in 76 villages in Beawar sub-division of Ajmer district were reconverted to Hinduism in a ceremony organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
VHP chief Ashok Singhal who was present at village Andheri Deori presented tulsi garlands to the villagers who reconverted into the Hindu fold in a ceremony on Sunday.
"The villagers were converted into Islam by force a few centuries back and most of them were observing religious ceremonies of both the faiths," a VHP spokesman said in Ajmer.

"Now the villagers have joined back their original faith," he added.

Each of the villagers was given a copy of the Ram Charitmanas by the VHP on this occasion.

100000 Indonesian Muslims converted to Hinduism

In an unpublished report in 1999, the National Indonesian Bureau of Statistics tacitly admits that nearly 100.000 Javanese have officially converted or 'reconverted' from Islam to Hinduism over the last two decades. At the same time, the East Javanese branch of the government Hindu organization PHDI (below) in an annual report claims the 'Hindu congregation' (umat hindu) of this province to have grown by 76000 souls in this year alone.
