India is going to be a Muslim-free county by 2021! Hindu fundamentalist outfit leaders claimed that they are working on Muslim-free India mission.
Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Sadhvi Prachi sparked a controversy on Tuesday by stating that it was time to make India ‘Muslim-free’ and that she was “working on it”.
Claiming that India had successfully achieved the Congress-free India mission, Prachi, who is infamous for her hate speeches against religious minorities, said it was time to get rid of Muslims in the country.
“Now that we have executed successfully the mission of making a Congress-free India, it is time to make India Muslim-free. It is our mission and we are working on that,” she said on the sidelines of an event in Roorkee in Uttarakhand.
She was speaking near the site where a communal clash left at least 32 people dead, including 12 police officers, injured on June 1. The incident took place when supporters of a local politician reportedly tried to forcibly evacuate a scrap dealer’s shop.
Khanpur MLA Kunwar Pranav Singh Champion’s house was attacked by members of a community alleging their sacred book was also desecrated by his supporters.
The Sadhvi claimed that the attack on Champion’s house was part of a “premeditated” conspiracy.
Champion, one of the nine Congress MLAs who revolted against Chief Minister Harish Rawat, recently joined BJP.
On the forthcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, she said if BJP projects Yogi Adityananth as its chief ministerial candidate, it was bound to win 300 seats in the state.
Prachi had often been in the news for asking people to boycott films of Bollywood Khans and demanding a CBI probe into all Muslim educational institutions including Aligarh Muslim University and madrasas in Deoband to check anti- national activities.
She slammed Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan for being “pro-Pakistan”. She also urged people to make Aamir Khan’s upcoming film ‘Dangal’ a flop.
Parchi is not the first
But Parchi is not the first. On December 18, 2014 speaking in Agra Dharm Jagran Samiti (DJS) Uttar Pradesh head Rajeshwar Singh said ‘Muslims and Christians will have to convert to Hinduism if they want to stay in this country.
The DJS had been at the forefront of the reconversion – or ‘ghar wapsi’ – programmes in which some Muslims have been reportedly ‘reconverted’ to Hinduism.
However, their action drew widespread condemnation, leading to the arrest of one activist.
“Our target is to make India a Hindu Rashtra by 2021. The Muslims and Christians don’t have any right to stay here.
“So they would either be converted to Hinduism or forced to run away from here,” Uttar Pradesh DJS head Rajeshwar Singh said.
