'Hindu Panchayat' called for 'Boycott Of Muslims'

In a video circulated online, Swami Anand Swaroop, a Hindu leader and the president of Varanasi-based outfit Shankaracharya Parishad, can be heard saying, "One who reads the Quran becomes a beast, they are no longer human. For those who wish to remain connected to India, they must give up the Quran and namaz. If we start boycotting Muslims socially and economically, they will embrace Hinduism.""We want an army of one crore Hindu youth. We don't need swayamsevak, we need a swayam-sena now. Pick up swords, guns or whatever you have, war has been declared and it will go on till we have a Hindu rashtra," he added.Swaroop has a history of making controversial, Islamophobic remarks. The Hindu leader has referred to Muslims and other non-Hindu practitioners as 'demons' in the past as well.
