Dhamtan Sahib village, 35 members of six Muslim families converted to Hinduism on Wednesday. A few months ago, Muslim families also embraced Hinduism in Danoda village.

These people believe in Hinduism, said that their ancestors were Hindus, they had converted to the Muslim religion due to pressure. For a long time, the family has been following  Hindu customs. Eventually, they decided to return to the Sanatan Dharma. When these families converted to Hinduism, other Hindu families welcomed them and called it a homecoming.

It is worth mentioning that on Wednesday, Havan was organized in Dhamtan Sahib village as per Hindu customs and traditions.  Families of Nazir and Janga adopted the Hindu religion in Dada Kheda Dhamtan.

All the 35 members wore janeu during the yajna itself. Baljeet, Sadik, Dinesh, Rajesh, Satbir, and Janga, who converted to Hinduism from Muslim society, said that they have taken this decision voluntarily without any pressure as our ancestors were Sanatani.

Family members said that there is a mixed culture of both Muslim and Hindu religions, the names of many members of the family are Hindu, and festivals like Holi, Diwali, Navratri are celebrated by the family. Till now, being Muslim, the tradition of burying the dead was practised by them, now they will no longer bury the dead but cremate them. Sarpanch Jaipal, Panchayat member Purushottam Sharma, Rajendra were present on the occasion.

"This matter is not in my knowledge. What can we do if they have done it of their own free will? If religion is changed under any pressure, then the administration will take action. If someone has been forced to do so under pressure they can file a complaint." Sanjay Bishnoi, SDM, Narwana.
