NEW DELHI: Taking strong objection to Hindutva leader Sadhvi Prachi's recent statement calling for a "Muslim-free" India, the All India Imams Council today staged a protest demanding an FIR against the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader.

Known for courting controversies, Sadhvi had said India must be rid of Muslims now that the mission of a Congress-free India has been "accomplished".

"The statement was not only unconstitutional and offensive but it will also promote enmity between two different communities," Mafti Hanir Ahrar Qasmi, general secretary of the Imam Council said.

Members of the Imam Council staged a demonstration at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi and later submitted a memorandum to the National Commission of Minorities.

"We demand immediate registration of an FIR with proper penal sections against Sadhvi and also a ban on her public meetings within the country since she has been continuously making the society boil on communal lines," the memorandum said.
