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.
He said there was neither pressure on these families nor any tension in the village. “There are other Muslim families living in an amicable and peaceful atmosphere. They are a part of the village community since the village came into existence years ago.” — TNS
