The practice of untouchability and discrimination based on caste are responsible for the conversion of Hindus to religions like Islam and Christianity said a Senior RSS leader said while addressing the reporters.

“Christians and Muslims were not to blame for the conversion of Hindus,” accepted  Shri Prabhu Narayan Srivastava.

When asked about the controversy over ‘ghar wapsi, Srivastava said that untouchability and discrimination on caste lines promoted by the Hindu religion and society was a weakness that pushed the deprived sections to convert to other religions.

“Both ‘ghar wapsi’ (re-conversion) and ‘ghar chhodna’ (conversion) were wrong if done out of greed or under inducement. No one should be forced to either convert or re-convert, and the religious freedom of everyone must be protected’’ he added.

“Untouchability  is the reason for weakness in Hindu society. Only our society practices untouchability and discrimination. Christians and Muslims are not responsible,” Srivastava said.

RSS has recently passed two resolutions in Nagpur – to welcome the decision of the United Nations to observe June 21 as International Yoga Day, and to appeal to all countrymen, including swayamsevaks  to play an effective role to establish the dignity of the mother language in education, day-to-day work and public affairs to achieve all-round development, national integrity and pride.

He added that India has blood relations with Pakistan and Bangladesh, and the taseer (essence) of soils, as well as their DNA, were the same.
