Faizabad: Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Singh Yadav has said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders should get their sisters and daughter married to reconverts.
“BJP leaders involved in conversion should get their sisters and daughter wedded to the victims of ghar-wapasi,” he said yesterday while reacting sharply to the saffron brigade's campaign on the contentious issue.
He also said that the BJP had promised that it will get those married but the party failed drastically to fulfil its commitment.
“Raking up issues like ghar-wapasi and love jihad are vile attempts to divert public attention from core issues," he said.
The Samajwadi leader was speaking to media on the sideline of a wedding function of party MLA Tej Narain Pandey's younger brother.
Meanwhile, Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Pravin Togadia has said that religious re-conversion would continue until the Central government banned such practise.
“We want the government to either ban religious conversions or allow us to go ahead with our re-conversion programmes. Hindus could no longer be silent on conversions which resulted in the ‘dwindling' of their population,” he said.
