National convention of VHP'sDharma Prasar Samiti was organised in Delhi from March 13 to 15. Addressing the delegates, VHP general secretary Dr Pravin Togadia described conversion as an invasion on the Hindu society. ?If conversion is not stopped it might cause another Division of the country. The Hindu society cannot survive only on the strength of government. We have to restore the glory of the nation with our own strength.
