08 Nov 2005

Fifty-eight tribals converted from Christianity to Hinduism during a ceremony organised by Hindu groups at an Orissa village Tuesday.

Bajrang Dal leader Subash Chouhan said that the people belonging to 12 trial families of two villages embraced Hinduism at Dharanidharpur village in Sundergarh district, 50 km from Rourkela city.

"Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parisad organised fire rituals and a procession to mark the event," Chouhan told IANS.

"We also informed the local administration prior to the people changing their religion," he said.
