(Compass) – Hindu extremists have begun a campaign to “reconvert” Christians from Dalit backgrounds in the north-central Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The World Hindu Council plans to convert to Hinduism at least 80,000 Dalits ( India ’s “untouchables” who occupy the lowest place in the caste system) in the region by year’s end. Hindu organizations conducted a survey claiming more than 200,000 Dalits in one part of the state had converted to Christianity. John Dayal, a member of India ’s National Integration Council and president of the All India Christian Council, said he was “amused” by the campaign goals.
