Earlier, Surendra Jain, Joint General Secretary, VHP also asked the Indian music maestro to do ghar wapsi and said:
"I will appeal to Rahman he should return, he should do ghar wapsi. The Hindu society is waiting for its son. We will not only welcome him with open arms but also ensure that no harm is done to him irrespective of how many fatwas are issued."
