Samaj district general secretary Santosh Kenwat said that out of 450 families living in Salora and Bisanpur, 43 families have converted. Such a large number of conversions was very worrying. The community is working hard to stop this at Chhattisgarh level. It started with Korba. Salora Unit Social Meeting Organized Hanuman Mandir Sangam Meeting. The officers of Churi, Katghora, Bisanpur, Chaitma, Amaldiha, Darra Bhanta, Kendai, Podi Upora Kachar and Korba were included in it. During this time 21 families who converted went back to their homes and were cheated by the authorities. On this occasion, President Ajit Kaivert strongly condemned the conversion and said that the Kenwat community has been following Hinduism since its inception. He said that if the society’s culture is manipulated, it will not be tolerated. The missionaries themselves remove the churches built in the village, otherwise the affected village and district bodies are forced to take important measures. Efforts will soon be made to bring the rest back to the society. The people of the community extended a warm welcome to the returning convert families.
