Lucknow: November 3, 2018, Shahzad Rana, a Muslim man in Shamli district in Uttar Pradesh, converted to Hinduism along with his family. He claimed that Lord Ram has been appearing in his dreams, asking him to return to Hinduism. The news comes exactly a month after a Muslim family in Baghpat district of the state had embraced Hinduism.

Following his conversion, Shahzad adopted the Hindu name Sanju Rana and approached the office of the district magistrate to make his conversion official. As per the claims made by him, his ancestors were Hindus, who were forced to convert to Islam.

“For the past 15-20 days, Lord Ram has been appearing in my dreams, asking me to come back (to Hinduism). We were Hindus earlier; invaders had come to our lands centuries ago and forced my ancestors to convert to Islam. I am just returning to my roots,” Rana told ANI.

Clarifying further, he said that the decision to convert was his own and he was not pressurised for the same by any person or group. He even asserted that his family is also happy after converting to Hinduism.

However, Rana claims to have received threats to his life from a number of people from his neighbourhood, including his uncle, who did not want him to convert. “I saved my life and fled to the police station this morning. I just want to protect my children,” he said.

Meanwhile, Superintendent of Police Dinesh Kumar, as quoted by ANI, said, “We haven’t received any concrete evidence regarding the threat to his life. The conversion is his (Rana’s) personal matter. Constitutional proceedings will be undertaken in this matter. Also, we haven’t found any evidence that Rana has been forced to convert by any religious group.”

Earlier in October, a Muslim man embraced Hinduism along with 12 of his family members in Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh. Police’s inaction in investigating the ‘murder’ case of his son and terming the ‘unnatural death’ as suicide forced him and his family take the extreme step.
