Alappuzha: Amidst raging controversy over conversion in the country, a batch of 30 people belonging to eight families of dalit Christians were "recoverted" to Hinduism under the auspices of Vishwa Hindu Parishad in the district on Sunday.

The ritual of "ghar wapsi" (homecoming), organized by district wing of VHP, was held at a local temple at Kanichanallor.

VHP leader Prathap G Padikkal, who arranged the functon, told PTI that the families "expressed their desire to come back to Hinduism" and VHP "only facilitated the return".

He said their ancestors had converted to Christianity some decades ago.

Another 150 families in the district have expressed their wish to embrace Hindusiam and VHP would arrange their "homecoming" also, he said.
