Stopped from installing idol in temple, 100 Hindu families threaten to convert to Islam

Meerut, Oct 11: Nearly 100 Dalit families in the Incholi area in the Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh have threatened to convert to Islam after they were allegedly stopped by locals, from placing idol of Goddess Kali in the village temple.

The angry Dalits reached the district magistrate’s residence to protest and alleged that the goons had threatened to thrash them if they tried to install the idol.

They alleged that they wanted to place an idol of Kali in the local Shiva temple on Wednesday, the first day of Navratra, but they were stopped by other locals.

Rajkumar, one of the protesters said, "We are Hindus. If we can't put an idol of goddess in a temple, then where should we go. It’s better to convert."

Vijay Kumar, another protestor, said, “During the kanwar yatra, we had hosted a bhandara at the Shiva temple and had floated the proposal of installing a Kali Maa idol there. Everybody, including the families that are stopping us now, had agreed to the idea and it was decided that the idol would be set up on the first day of Navratra. However, when we went ahead with our plan on Wednesday, the four families stopped us, claiming to be members of the temple committee, even though they don’t have any documents to prove it.”

The villagers alleged that the four families, who also happen to be Dalits, had captured the temple premises and apart from parking their vehicles there, used it to drink liquor.

“If we are not allowed to set up the idol in the temple, we will convert to Islam. This holds for at least 100 families of the village, who were not let into the temple. If the district administration does not intervene, we will convert to Islam,” said Kuldeep Kumar, another villager.

Additional district magistrate (enforcement) Ram Chandra, said, “The matter is in our knowledge and there is nothing to worry about. It is a tiff between two groups over installation of an idol, which will be looked into and we will soon reach a conclusion.”

It is compulsory for every humanbeing to search for the truth and true religion.

Try until convinced the fact. If not understood, ask the experts to clear the doubts.

 

Once convinced dare to accept it, without fearing of others. That is the true spirit.

No compulsion on religion.

But if failed to follow after convincing the truth, then it is real disobedience of the God. 

 

These people are putting conditions to their other party.

they say if other party do  this, then we will remain as Hindus  else we goto Islam.

Islam does not force anyone NOR prevent from accepting.

If one accepts Islam, it is for him only, not for others.

 

Islam does not accept such conditions, nor forcing to accept. And Islam does not offer any bribe. It is forbidden in Islam to bribe.

Because truth does not need bribe nor fear to say the truth.
