New Delhi, March 18: Firebrand VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi on Tuesday courted fresh controversy by saying that those who do not chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' and 'Vande Mataram' have no right to live in India.
She was speaking in a function organised by Vishwa Hindu Parishad in Bahraich district of Uttar Pradesh. She said, "Those who do not chant, 'Bharat Mata ki Jai', 'Vande Mataram', insult the national flag have no right to live in India."
Sadhvi also said those having more than two children should not be allowed to cast votes. "A law should be framed to scrap the voting rights of such people irrespective of the religion," Sadhvi was quoted as saying in media reports.
The firebrand leader also took a dig at the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi saying that he was a British agent. She said that India got independence from the British rule not by spinning charkha of Mahatma Gandhi but because of the sacrifices made by freedom fighters likes Bhagat Singh and Veer Savarkar.
Last month, Sadhvi Prachi courted controversy by saying that Hindus should boycott movies of Bollywood stars Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan.
She had earlier said that hindu women should have four children not 40 puppies like others in a veiled reference to a particular community.
