Terror case accused BJP MP Pragya Singh Thakur on Sunday urged Hindus to keep weapons prepared at home to use against enemies. Thakur’s remarks citing “Love Jihad” indicates she is referring to Muslims as enemies.
“Keep weapons at home. Keep them sharp. If veggies can be cut well, so can the enemy’s head,” Thakur is caught saying at the event.

“Respond in the same way to those involved in Love Jihad. Protect your daughters and instil good values in them.”
The MP from Bhopal said to at least keep knives used to cut vegetables.
“Keep weapons in your homes, if nothing else, at least knives used to cut vegetables, sharp…Don’t know what situation will arise when…Everyone has the right to self-protection. If someone infiltrates our house and attacks us, giving a befitting replay is our right,” she said.
