Kottayam: At least 51 persons, most of them belonging to Christian community, embraced Hinduism at nearby Kurichi on Easter on Sunday.

Twenty five men and 26 women converted to Hinduism in the reconversion ritual organised by Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP), organisers of the programme said.

VHP district secretary P K Gopalakrishnan claimed that it was not a forced conversion and the people belonging to 20 families embraced Hinduism on their own.

"We are just facilitators. There is no force," Gopalakrishnan told PTI.

He also justified the decision to organise the event on Easter saying it was a convenient day for all since it is a holiday.

Gopalakrishnan said so far 153 persons, mostly belonging to Christian community, have reconverted to Hinduism in the district under the initiatives undertaken by various Hindu organisations since Christmas last year.

On Christmas last year, at least 58 persons had converted to Hinduism at two temples as part of the Ghar Wapsi programme organised by the VHP, he said.
