Hindus should have at least 5 children, else will become minority: BJP MLA

Text Size:

Surendra Singh had earlier said that rape cannot be curbed even if Lord Ram lands on earth. 

A child is a gift from God and every Hindu should have at least five, two for the man, two for the woman and one surplus, BJP’s controversial Uttar Pradesh MLA Surendra Singh has said.

Hindus will become a minority if there is “no balance” in population control, the legislator from Bairia, who earlier this month said rape cannot be curbed even if Lord Ram descends on earth, told reporters last night.

“Hindus should have at least five children. Two for the man, two for the woman and one surplus. Giving birth to a child is ‘prasad’ (gift) from God. India can become strong when Hindus are strong. When Hindu is weak, India is weak…,” Singh said.

According to him, the Hindu community should be concerned that they will become a minority if there is “no balance in population control” and have more children.

“Hindus will be a minority, not due to terrorists but due to themselves,” he said.

Singh’s statements have often put the state’s ruling BJP in an embarrassing spot.

After the Kairana Lok Sabha and Noorpur assembly bypolls earlier this year, he blamed ministers in the Yogi Adityanath government for the party’s humiliating defeat in both places.

“The BJP government has not been able to give a transparent government,” the MLA had said.

He had also endorsed the view of senior JD(U) leader KC Tyagi that the rising prices of petrol and diesel were responsible for the BJP’s defeat in the by-elections.

Before that, Singh had said the 2019 Lok Sabha elections would be an “Islam vs Bhagwan” battle.-“- PTI

  1. दुनिया में बच्चे पैदा करने और आग लगाने का अधिकार तो सिर्फ एक को है ।।। बाँकी अगर बोलता भी है तो news बन जाता है , कांग्रेस के हिसाब से

  2. Such statements often comes when governments leave their responsibilities of population control and growing population is just a tool to garner votes.

  3. The country’s resources cant even support the present population, forget about an even increased one. In a country where 100s of children die every day of hunger and malnutrition you are asking people to have more.
    And hindus are already in majority (80% or maybe even more) it would take like 100 years or more for hindus to go into minority. Fun fact the resources might not last that long so there might not be any habitable india after 100 years at present rate of population growth

  4. The health status of the women of India is so under nourished and anaemic that even one child is beyond her psychological parameters along with her other duties How many kids do these politicians have will their wives concur?

  5. Y 5make it 10 den will bjp pay d parents der expenses. Produce lessn make them gud citizens
