Watch BJPs Yogi Adityanath tells Hindus to marry a 100 Muslim women

When an undated Youtube video of BJP MP Yogi Adityanath allegedly telling Hindu supporters to marry a hundred Muslim women for every Hindu woman marrying a Muslim and forcibly made to convert to Islam surfaced, it created an uproar across the country, in wake of the Love Jihad controversy.

But on Tuesday night, the BJP member claimed the video was not authentic. "It is the media's responsibility to get a video examined before showing it," he told Headlines Today when asked to comment on the issue.

In the clip found on Youtube, Yogi Adityanath can be heard telling his supporters that the Uttar Pradesh High Court had questioned the state government on why so many Hindu girls were eloping with Muslim men to which the government had no answer. The yogi further narrates what a youth from Gorakhpur said about the issue, "Probably in the rest of Uttar Pradesh Hindu women run away with Muslim but in Gorakhpur, Hindu men marry Muslim women and bring them home." In the background hoots of glee can be heard from men attending the speech.

Yogi Adityanath goes on to say that they will accept these Muslim brides and will cleanse them and introduce them to their new religion.
