Hindus should boycott the Khan triumvirate of Bollywood as they promote love jihad, and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi should marry an Indian girl and settle down.
These were some pieces of advice offered by Bharatiya Janata Party leader and preacher Sadhvi Prachi at a meeting of the Vishva Hindu Parishad, a right-wing organisation, in Dehradun on Sunday.
“Our children do not get right samskars from the movies of the Khans. They promote love jihad,” she said, appealing to Hindus to not put up posters of the Khans on their walls.
Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan form the Khan trio who call the shots in Bollywood.
She said, “Love Jihad was not a form of inter-religion marriage but a forcible change in one’s beliefs with criminal intentions. Hindu organisations will never tolerate this.”
She then picked on Congress party leader Rahul Gandhi.
Prachi told HT: Rahul’s mother and sister grew concerned when he went “missing” recently. He must pay heed to their concerns, get married and settle down, she said.
She was referring to Gandhi scion going on leave reportedly to reflect on the recent events and future course of the Congress.
From marriage, Sadhvi Prachi veered to the need for Hindus to have more children.
Prachi said, “The population of Hindus is on the decline. They must have more children to maintain a balance (between communities) in the country.”
Another BJP leader and MP, Sakshi Maharaj, had recently said Hindus should have four kids. “If a Hindu has four children, one can work for the country, one can protect the borders, one can join the RSS and one can serve the parents,” he had said.
Later, the party upbraided Sakshi Maharaj for his comment.
She also took turns at hard-line Hindu leaders’ favourite punchbag — Mother Teresa. Sadvi Prachi criticised Mother Teresa, saying she was opposed to laws against conversion.
