Jind’s 6 Muslim families convert to Hinduism

Hisar, April 23

Six Muslim families in Danodha Kalan village of Jind have converted to Hinduism. These families performed the last rites as per Hindu rituals and embraced the religion by accepting to perform other Hindu rituals on April 17.

Village sarpanch Purshotam Sharma said an aged person had died in the family, after which they decided to embrace Hinduism at the time of cremation. “The body of the deceased was consigned to flames as per Hindu rituals. Later, the family members performed other rituals like ‘pind daan’,” he said.
