VHP mulls re-conversion of Christians in Goa
Friday February 27, 2015 7:24 PM, IANS

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) plans to re-convert Christians in Goa and is in the middle of an expansion drive in the state, a VHP leader said here Friday.

Ahead of VHP's golden jubilee function in the state, Dada Bedak, secretary in-charge of the Satsang (Spiritual Discourse) division, told media that the senior leaders would discuss issues like re-conversion, love jihad, etc. and how to approach them in next 50 years.

"Goa has so many Hindus who were converted during the Portuguese rule... We will look to re-converting them back to Hinduism," Vedak said.

Goa, a former Portuguese colony, has a population of 1.5 million of which 26 percent are Christians.
