Vishva Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi on Tuesday said "It's time to rid India of Muslims", reported The Indian Express. “Now that we have achieved the mission of making a Congress-free India, it is time to make India Muslim-free. We are working on that,” she said. The religious leader was speaking in Roorkee, where a communal clash left at least 32 people, 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 in the Uttarakhand city.

Prachi also spoke about the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. She suggested that if the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party declared Yogi Adityanath as its chief ministerial candidate for the state, the saffron camp will comfortably secure 300 seats in the polls. The Hindu leader is known for her irresponsible remarks regarding the minority community. In the past, she has asked people to boycott films made by the Khans and also sought investigations into Muslim educational institutions to weed out anti-national elements, who ,according to her, are frequently sheltered in organisations run by or for the minority community.
