Lucknow, May 1, 2015, DHNS:
Saffron outfits had promised land after conversion, they say
The conversion controversy resurfaced after a brief lull in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra district, about 350 km from here, when as many as 17 Muslims, who had converted to Hinduism, “returned” to their old faith.
According to sources, the reconversion rituals were performed at the Mahuar Lathia village in the district during a religious ceremony by a Muslim cleric on Friday.
Reports said all 17 men and women had to again solemnise their “nikah” (Muslim marriage) as the cleric told them their earlier “nikah” had become null and void when they converted to Hinduism last December.
