‘Ghar vapsi’ programmes needed, says M.P. Minister

Senior Madhya Pradesh Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya on Monday said that campaigns like Vishva Hindu Parishad's ‘ghar vapsi’ programme were needed to protect the members of Hindu community from ‘exploitation’.

In a tweet this morning, he said: “How can we tolerate exploitation of Hindus in the name of religion. There is a need to have big programmes like ‘ghar vapsi’ in large numbers.” He also questioned Congress leaders for not backing a strong law against religious conversion.

“There is a demand for a stringent legislation against conversion. But Congress president Sonia Gandhi, her son Rahul Gandhi and Digvijay Singh are silent (on the issue).”
