Re-conversion leader Judeo is no more
Aug. 15, 2013
Dilip Sigh Judeo, who shot into political prominence with his 'Ghar Vapsi' campaigns for re-conversion of Christians into Hindu fold, died in a private hospital in New Delhi on Wednesday after a protracted illness. He was 64. Chhattisgarh BJP government has declared a three-day mourning over the death of the party leader from August 16 to 18. The last rites of Judeo, member of a former royal family, will be performed with state honors.
Judeo, who represents Bilaspur constituency in the Lok Sabha, was suffering from liver and kidney complication and was undergoing treatment at a Gurgaon hospital for the last two months. Judeo's ghar vapasi (homecoming) movement claimed to bring Christians "back to" Hinduism, which it said had been their original religion. Several such ceremonies have taken place since the movement began more than two decade ago. Media reports often describe them as stunts for political gains.
Such events, Christian leaders have alleged, help people get "headlines in print and visual media," so people with election-ticket aspirations often organize such ceremonies to put themselves in the limelight.
