Known for making controversial statements, BJP leader Sadhvi Prachi on Monday stoked another debate by asking Hindus to boycott movies of the three Khans of Bollywood.

She accused Shah Rukh, Aamir and Salman Khan of promoting Love Jihad and asked Hindus to not put their movies posters on walls.

At a meeting of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in Dehradun, she said, "Our children are being misled by the movies of the Khans. They promote love jihad. Do not put posters of the Khans on your walls."

In another amusing remark, she commented on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi by saying that he should marry an Indian girl.

Prachi is known for making controversial statements in public. Earlier in Janurary, she made inflammatory remarks on the issue of 'love jihad' and said that Hindu women should bear four children.

The firebrand leader had contested the 2012 Assembly elections on BJP ticket from Purkazi constituency in UP.

The pracharak was also among the accused for inciting riots by giving inflammatory speeches in Muzaffarnagar in 2013 but was later granted bail.
