Hundreds of tribals have been converted to Hinduism at a function in Thane. Organisers said that the tribals were originally Hindus and thus it was a mere purification.
Nearly 800 families comprising thousands of indigenous tribals were 're-converted' to Sanatan dharma. Swami Narendra Maharaj said that it was not a conversion or re-conversion, rather purification because the tribals were basically Hindus.
During the five-stage ceremony, a yagna was performed. The idols were installed and a multi-staged ceremony was completed before their re-initiation into the Hindu fold.
Religious conversion is a serious and touchy topic in India. Christian missionaries are accused of luring backward caste Hindus and tribals and converting them to Christianity.
The tribals though have maintained a separate identity are claimed by proselytising Hindus as part of the Hindu society.
