New Delhi: To accelerate its ‘ghar wapsi’ (anti-conversion) programmes, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) has identified 1,000 odd “sensitive” blocks across the country where it will run an “awareness” campaign against the alleged religious conversions. 

“During the meeting in Ayodhya last month, it was decided to expedite the ghar wapsi (religious conversions) programme. We have identified 1,000 blocks across the country and our workers are reaching out to the people in these areas and educating them about the ills of conversion to a Semitic religion after abandoning one’s own faith,” VHP president Alok Kumar told ThePrint. 

Kumar added that religious conversions in Punjab are a matter of “grave concern” and the organisation is focusing on this issue with a lot of seriousness.
