Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Sadhvi Prachi has managed to stir a controversy again, with her statement that Muslim women should marry Hindus in order to protect themselves from halala and triple talaq, as reported by the Times of India.
Speaking to the media in Mathura on July 31, the fireband Hindu leader advised Muslim women to get married into Hindu community and live a life of respect.
“Na talaq ka na halala ka koi dar hai… Hindu samaj mein aaye na koi dar hai… aise gande samaj ko chhod kar ke jo mahilaon ki zindagi kewal tabah karte hain… Hindu dharma mein aayein… Hindu samaj mein shadi karna.. achhey sanskari bahut achhey bete milenge… aapaka swagat hai (There would be no fear of talaq or halala if Muslim women join the Hindu community.. You should leave that ugly society which only destroys the life of women. Convert to Hinduism, get married into Hindu community… you will find boys with good values… you are welcome,)” Prachi said.
She also appealed to those Muslim women, who have been given triple talaq, to join Hindu religion, which would act as a “slap on the face” of those who threaten women of issuing fatwa against them.
The controversial leader did not stop here. She went on further by requesting Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to ensure that loud speakers in mosques be switched off during the Kanwar Yatra processions in UP.
“Mere bade bhai Yogi ji.. kam se kam.. jab tak Uttar Pradesh mein kaanwar chale..tab tak Masjidon mein loud speaker band ho (My elder brother Yogi ji should ensure that till the time Kanwar processions are going on in Uttar Pradesh, loudspeakers in mosques should be switched off.),” she said.
The controversial leader is known for making insensitive statements.
In the past also, she has made so many contentious statements.
She tagged Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan as a ‘Pakistani agent’ and suggested he goes there only.
“It’s a big misfortune that in the Indian Parliament, we have one-two terrorists sitting there,” she said in another instance.
“Why are Hindu devotees always under threat during pilgrimages, be it in Amarnath, Vaishno Devi or Puri’s Jagannath Temple? If such attacks happen, I tell you, the Haj yatris will face consequences,” she was seen saying on another occasion.
“Those who do not chant ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, ‘Vande Mataram’, insult the national flag and those who indulge in cow slaughter have no right to live in India,” another controversial statement made by the fireband Hindu leader.
Justifying the heinous Dadri lynching, where 65-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq was lynched by a mob on suspicion of storing beef in his house, Prachi said those who consume such beef deserved such actions against them.
