DEHRADUN: Bharatiya Janata Party leader and preacher Sadhvi Prachi said Hindus should boycott the Khan triumvirate of Bollywood as they promote a culture of violence, reported Hindustan Times.

“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 but instead burn them down. Prachi also encouraged youngsters to not follow the Khan trio, which includes Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan.

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.”

Prachi was also successful in picking on Congress party leader Rahul Gandhi and also took turns at hard-line Hindu leaders’ favourite punchbag — Mother Teresa. She criticised Mother Teresa, saying she was opposed to laws against conversion.

    It’s high time that the Khans in Bollywood took a firm stand on the growing threat of violent philosophy that is threatening the social fabric of the country. They cannot continue playing both the sides and pretending that “All Izz well”. It’s time to stop ‘running with the hare and hunting with the hounds’. The next generation of moviegoers are bound to reject them completely.Recommend

    @Baddi Magane:

    Are you kidding me?

    The next generation of moveigovers are stupider than this generations. They may be better engineers and doctors, but they’re stupider than this generation because they’ve been fed by this generation.

    If this generation cannot see it, then the next generation will definitely not.Recommend

    I don’t even pay attention to these types of news.

    Politicians are useless and would keep coming up with innovative ideas of promoting hatred. It is a open market capitalism in country. People would watch what they like for their entertainment. Ms Parachi and all politicians of Sub Continent, our request to you please keep religion and politics out of Entertainment, Sports, Education and Health. Please don’t spoil these 4 sectors. These belong to common 1.4 Billion people of the region. Peace!! Recommend

    Every Hindu is a leader as far as religion is concerned. We don’t take dictates from these semiliterate self styled idiots. We don’t have Muslims like Friday Khutbas. In India she is no one and only Pakistanis make her a leader. Rest assured Indians will watch any film irrespective of who is the lead actor, including your Fawad Khan. Indians are smarter than their religious and political leaders. We can make fun not only of our so called leaders but of our deities as well. Even Lord Rama and Krishna are not spared when poking fun. PK ran full house in India just recently while poking fun on religious believes. Few people will always have different views. Majority of Indians are seculars and will remain so, come what may. Recommend
