Amritsar: RSS offshoot converts over 120 Christians to Sikhism

Amritsar: Even as the conversion row continues, nearly 128 Christians have been converted to Sikhism in Amritsar at a ceremony organised by the Dharam Jagran Manch - an offshoot of the RSS. In a statement, the group claimed that the people approached them expressing a desire to be converted to Sikhism.

This event comes even as the BJP has tried to distance itself from the conversion row. Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has started a minority outreach programme.

"There are a lot of good govt schemes, but because of middlemen the process is disrupted. now we are planning to work directly at the ground level so that people can get social and financial benefits of our schemes," Naqvi said.

Infact, actor Amitabh Baccchan has also been roped in to do ads for damage control.
