The Conversion Agenda

"Freedom to convert" is counterproductive as a generalized doctrine. It fails to come to terms with the complex interrelationships between self and society that make the concept of individual choice meaningful. Hence, religious conversion undermines, and in extremes would dissolve, that individual autonomy and human freedom.

At least 16 Christians converted back to Hinduism in a ceremony in Orissa's Sundergarh district, a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader said on Monday.

People from four families, including men, women and children, formally announced their return to Hinduism on Sunday at a religious function at Tainda village, about 150 km from the district headquarters of Sundergarh, VHP leader Subash Chouhan said.

Those who re-converted to Hinduism are the residents of Tangarashi, Jamundar and Tabada villages, he said. Prior to the ceremony, they had informed the local administration about their wish to change their religion, he said.

At least 733 persons of 161 families of western Orissa have re-converted to Hinduism this year, he said.
