Ghaziabad: Ex-Uttar Pradesh Shia Waqf Board chairman Waseem Rizvi quit Islam and converted to Hinduism on Monday.

The head priest of Dasna Devi temple in Ghaziabad, Swami Yati Narsinghanand, converted Rizvi to Hinduism. Following the religious conversion, Rizvi’s new name would be Jitendra Narayan Singh Tyagi, Narsinghanand said.

“I was removed from Islam. The prize money on my head is increased every Friday. Today I am embracing Sanatan Dharma,” Rizvi was quoted as saying by India Today TV.

National president of All India Hindu Mahasabha, Swami Chakrapani Maharaj, welcomed the decision. “The decision of former Muslim cleric Waseem Rizvi sahab to accept Hindu Sanatan Dharma is welcome. All India Hindu Mahasabha, Sant Mahasabha welcomes him. Waseem Rizvi Sahab is now a part of our Hindu Sanatan Dharma, no fanatic should dare to issue a fatwa against him. The central and state governments should provide him proper security,” he was quoted as saying by India Today TV.

Waseem Rizvi had allegedly got life threats after he filed a PIL in the Supreme Court that sought the removal of some verses from the Quran, which according to him taught violence. The Supreme Court, however, rejected his appeal.
