Hindu outfit “reconverts” Nine LABOURERS in TN

Written by | January 30, 2015 | 0
Chennai: Amid raging controversy over “ghar wapsi”, nine persons, including three couples, were reconverted to Hindu religion after being Christians for over a decade at a brief ceremony here today.

Deivanayagi, her husband Sekar, Annakili and her spouse Rajendran and Lakshmi and her husband Jeyaraman were the
couples who were reconverted at a brief ceremony.

Besides them, Jamuna, Nagamma and Mouli Velu were the others who returned to the Hindu faith.

All of them hail from suburban Minjur here and are construction labourers.

They were sprinkled with Ganga waters, turmeric tinged rice after brief prayers that began with a Vedic hymn to Lord Ganesha.

State General Secretary of Hindu Makkal Katchi Rama Ravikumar led the ceremony and prayers.

Deivanayagi and Sekar said they became Christians 17 years ago as the local Church allegedly promised them houses
to live if they got converted.

Annakili and Rajendran said they became Christians a decade ago. Lakshmi and Jayaraman said they followed the
Christian faith for six years.
