Firebrand BJP MP Yogi Adityanath has said VHP’s ‘Ghar Vapasi’ programme will continue unless conversions are banned and that India’s problem was “not poverty” but “vote bank politics fuelled by jehadi fervour”.
“Conversions spoil communal amity in the country. It should be banned. If conversions continue, I feel ‘Ghar Vapasi’ programme will continue,” Aditynath, who is BJP’s Hindutva face, said at a meet organised by Vishwa Hindu Parishad yesterday.
The Hindu outfit has come under criticism for its programme to “recovert” people who it claims had changed their religion from Hinduism.
He also alleged that “anti-national activities breed” in “Muslim areas” and said the “secularists” should ansswer his questions.
