'Will Keep Reconverting Muslims': Unease Among India's Hindu Nationalists Over RSS Chief's Remarks

India’s topmost Hindu nationalist leader, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, a prominent ally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has said that “Hindus and Muslims have a common DNA”. “If a Hindu says that no Muslim should live here [in India], then that person is not a Hindu”, he said. Bhagwat's comments have stirred unease among many Hindu nationalists.

India's leading Hindu nationalist organisation - Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) - has said that it will continue with its mission of "reconverting Muslims back to Hinduism", as it reacted to the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) leader’s recent remarks made during an event of its Muslim wing.

Reconversion in this case is about bringing those people back into the Hindu-fold who may have been converted to Islam or Christianity against their will.

"What he meant is that all Muslims were originally Hindus... They have the same ancestors... No matter what, we will keep reconverting Muslims to Hinduism", Vinod Bansal, the spokesperson of the VHP, told Sputnik, clarifying what RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat meant by his recent remarks.
