Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Sadhvi Prachi has stirred a controversy again, this time with her statement that Muslim women should marry Hindus to escape halala and triple talaq, the Times of India reported.

Speaking to the media in Mathura on Tuesday, 31 July, the controversial leader also requested Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who she refers to as "brother", to ensure that loud speakers in mosques be switched off during the Kanwar Yatra processions in UP.

“From Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Kanwariyas from different states carry their Kaanwar as part of procession to celebrate marriage of Bhole Nath,” she said in Mathura. She added, “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.. there should be a ban on use of loud speakers in masjids.)," the Indian Express reported.

Sadhvi Prachi further advised Muslim women who have been given triple talaq to leave their religion and live a life of respect by converting to Hinduism.

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 talaq or fear of halala if Muslim women join the Hindu community.. You should leave the society which only destroys the life of women. Get married into Hindu community… you will find boys with good values… you are welcome.)”

The fireband Hindu leader also spoke on the issue of construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, the TOI report stated. She said that some people were trying to politicise the issue, but no one can stop the construction of the temple in 2019.

On 30 July, Sadhvi Prachi had taken a dig at Congress president Rahul Gandhi saying that she would pray for him to get married if his party fails to get a majority.
