Meerut: A group of Muslims in Agra, who converted to Hinduism on Christmas last year became Muslim again on Friday.
About 17 members of ‘Nat’ community, an extremely backward community in Mahuar Lathiya village in Achnera block, who became Muslim, alleged that a Hindutva group leader had pressured them to become Hindu and had promised them a piece of land.
All those who reconverted belong to the same family and used to live in a settlement of fellow ‘Nat’ community on a public land.
Fifty-year-old Rahmat, the eldest of the group, told the media that Ali Mohammad had pressured the rest of the family members after the Hindutva leader had allegedly promised them a piece of land. After they had become Hindu last year, they faced boycott by their fellow community members.
They didn’t get invitation for marriages and other community functions of the closely knit Nat community in the village.
