SURAT, GUJARAT, INDIA, December 22, 2009: In its offensive against conversion of tribals to Christianity, Maharashtra-based Shree Sampraday sect claimed to have reconverted 1,747 people back to Hinduism in Surat on Monday. The Surat district magistrate, however, took note of the organizers’ failure to seek permission for reconversion as stipulated in the Gujarat Freedom of Religion Act, 2003.

The camp to reconvert tribals who had embraced Christianity was held in the city for the first time. Nearly 5,000 people from Maharashtra and Gujarat participated in the ceremony. The participants were given sacred thread to mark their reconversion.

“We organized the event in Surat to promote Hinduism in urban areas. We have a series of events planned in the near future to hold such reconversion camps in urban areas of Gujarat,” said Yashwant More, secretary of Surat District Seva Samiti of Shree Sampraday.
