You can’t. It’s the users browser, not yours.

My requirement is, once i clicks the browser back button my site redirect to
home page.

The saying “it’s more trouble than it’s worth” is particularly fitting
in this situation.

Thanks!

I don’t think so. This is in the FAQ in comp.lang.javascript, and the
answer is that it can’t be done.

NO NO NO! 100 TIMES NO!

The back button is so fundamental to the experience of using a browser,
that if your design needs it to be disabled, then your design is broken.
Period. End of discussion.

As others have indicated, it’s tricky-to-impossible and considered
seriously bad practice to do this sort of fiddling with the browser’s
navigation.

A better question is, why does this need to happen? There’s a good
chance
that the need for this sort of behavior reflects a design smell
someplace
else - for instance, trying to maintain session state in the URL or
similar.
