In the video, Adityanath is seen saying: "If they take one Hindu girl, we will take 100 Muslim girls." He is heard saying that Hindu boys should marry Muslim girls and later convert them. In the video he also said they would accept anybody who is willing to convert to Hinduism.
Adityanath is seen making the speech infront of many supporters. He says the way Hindu girls are insulted, I don't think civilised society will accept it.
Adityanath, however refused to comment on the video and said that he didn't want to make any clarifications on the issue.
Meanwhile the Samajwadi Party hit out at Adityanath and questioned BJP's stand on the issue. Muslim clerics too criticised Adityanath for his comments.
This is not the first time Adityanath is seen making controversial statements. Earlier in Paliament he made a statement accusing the Congress of working at the behest of Pakistan.
