JP’s firebrand MP from Gorakhpur Yogi Adityanath has triggered a fresh controversy by saying that he will install idols of Gauri-Ganesh in every masjid, if given a chance.

Adityanath was speaking at Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s 'Virat Hindu Sammelan' organised as part of its golden jubilee year celebrations in Varanasi.

“Aryavart created Aryans; will make Hindus in Hindustan,” he said.

 “Everyone can come to Kashi but only Muslims are allowed in Mecca and Medina,” Adityanath said, adding, “This is the century of Hindutva, not just in India but in the entire world.”

 The controversial MP also justified ‘Ghar Wapasi’ and questioned the ‘secular’ brigade, saying, “When missionaries carry out conversion by alluring innocent tribal people and dalits in the name of service to humanity why secular do forces keep quiet?”

On Barack Obama’s statement that acts of intolerance in India would have Mahatma Gandhi, Adityanath said that instead of preaching India, the US President should take note of racial conflict in his country.

Adityanath’s comments in Varanasi comes days after he had criticised the "politics of appeasement", saying his vision for inclusive growth means equal rights for the majority Hindu community as well as for the minorities.

"Inclusive growth means where a graveyard as well as a crematorium gets money. A Muslim's daughter gets scholarship as well as a Hindu's daughter. Where madrasas get grants and also Sanskrit schools. My 'sabka saath, sabka vikaas' involves no appeasement politics," the MP said while campaigning for the BJP in the recently concluded assembly polls in Delhi.

Recently two other BJP MPs from UP, Union Minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti and Sakshi Maharaj had triggered similar controversies.

Both Sadhvi and Maharaj had to apologise in Parliament for their controversial remarks, this after Prime Minister ticked off BJP MPs and asked them to desist from making such statements and asked them not to cross the ‘Lakshman Rekha’.
