NEW DELHI: A day after a BJP lawmaker from UP said Hindus should have at least five children to save Hindutva, another BJP leader has said that it’s of “grave concern” that the Muslim population is increasing because that’s the reason for growing incidents of terror crime and lynching, reported Times Now.
BJP MP from UP, Hari Om Pandey, further said in an interview with the TV channel that at the rate the Muslim population is growing we will see the creation of another Pakistan and that doesn’t bode well for India. He further said a bill must be brought in Parliament, applicable to everyone, to control population.
“The main problem in India is because terrorism, crimes, mob lynching are increasing and the reason for this is the population of the country. There’s a huge increase in the country’s population today compared with the time of independence and the reason for that is one community, that of the Muslims,” said Pandey.
The MP from UP’s Ambedkar Nagar constituency said that Muslims don’t believe in birth control or any form of planning, and Muslim religious leaders say it isn’t allowed in Islam.
“They say ‘Allah talaa however much our population increases it isn’t enough’, and because of that terrors, crime lynchings are all rising,” said Pandey.
Pandey also said one Pakistan in the neighbourhood is enough – “they just had elections and already they are being called ‘Aatankistan’ (Terroristan)” – and unless a bill is passed in parliament to curb population “we will produce another Pakistan”.
Two days before Pandey’s comments, BJP UP lawmaker Surendra Singh said “Hindus must produce at least five children to keep India strong and keep Hindutva intact” in the country, reported news agency ANI.
