Muzaffarnagar. The spiritual transformation, led by Mahant Swami Yashwai Ji Maharaj and guided by Acharya Mrigendra Brahmachari Maharaj Ji, reflects a growing trend of individuals reconnecting with their ancestral roots and choosing to return to Sanatan Dharma.
Under the guidance of Acharya Mrigendra Brahmachari Maharaj Ji, who revealed that a total of 1,100 Muslims have reverted to Sanatan Dharma in recent times, these 70 individuals made a conscious choice to return to the religion that was followed by their ancestors. The ceremony symbolises a growing trend of individuals reconnecting with their roots and embracing Sanatan Dharma, particularly in the wake of Yogi Adityanath government’s return to power.
Muzaffarnagar is the same district where violence targeted the Hindu community, known as the Muzaffarnagar riots of 2013. These riots commenced on August 27, 2013, and persisted for several days. Tragically, the violence claimed the lives of at least 62 individuals and displaced over 50,000 people. The riots were ignited by the murder of two Hindu men at the hands of a Muslim mob. However, the root causes of the riots are intricate and have been the subject of debate among historians and social scientists. The Muzaffarnagar riots had a profoundly devastating impact on the region. Many lives were lost, and numerous individuals sustained injuries, while thousands were compelled to leave their homes. Furthermore, the riots resulted in extensive damage to both property and businesses throughout the affected areas.
