Vishwa Hindu Parishad(VHP) leaders have pleaded Muslims communities to cultivate reforms which could curb population rate like other communities in India. During a VHP ‘Margdarshak Mandal’ congregation held at Kumbh Mela in Nasik has discussed about the excessive growth of Muslim population in the country. Recent census data has shown a phenomenal growth rate of 24.6 percent in muslim population between 2001 and 2011. Only Muslim community registered an excessive growth rate in terms of share in countries total population.
VHP Secretary, Rajendra Singh Pankaj urged Muslim community should follow internal reform to maintain and control excessive population rate. Muslim should enact some changes and restrict themselves from having several wives and children.
The VHP leaders at Kumbh Mela stated, “A major section of the Muslim community has taken population growth as a mission and some hardliners too are misguiding innocent Muslims to increase their population by showing them dreams of Darul Islam.”
VHP Leaders quoted that other communities in the nation will be facing serious problems with this exponential Muslim population growth. With their religious campaigns and motto’s if Muslims do not act fast to curb their population, will soon face adverse effects. Other parts of the world, predominant Muslim population countries like Arab are following family planning, why not Indian Muslims adopt such measures. Leaders also quoted that illegal migration into country from Bangladesh and Myanmar is also one of the reason for Muslim population outburst.
VHP leaders stated at the meeting saying, “Central and state governments, both, seemed to have failed in controlling the situation at these places. And, probably, this is the reason that certain Muslim leaders are warning that Hindus will have to survive on their terms when Muslim population crosses 20 per cent share in the country.”
