Islamophobia: Indian MLA believes Muslims bearing more children to control India


New Delhi, Jan. 2 (TNS): A hardliner Hindu extremist Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) leader on Tuesday said that Muslims were bearing more children with an aim to outnumber Hindus and to take control of India by 2030.

The remarks by Banwari Lal Singhal, an MLA from Alwar, in a Facebook post come ahead of a by-poll to the Alwar parliamentary seat on January 29, NDTV reports.

“Muslims were giving birth to 12-14 children while Hindus restrict the number to one or two,” his post said.

“The way the Muslim population is increasing, the existence of Hindus is in danger. It is a well-planned conspiracy to have a Muslim in the chair of president, prime minister and chief ministers,” the MLA maintained.

“Hindus will become secondary citizens if Muslims become lawmakers.”

When questioned about the post Singhal told an Indian news agency, “I wrote the post after a lot of consideration and I am not going to take it down.”

The MLA said he wrote the post after watching a video about Muslim population growth in India.

“It’s a conspiracy of Muslims to capture all assembly and parliamentary constituencies by giving birth to 12-14 children and establish their rule by 2030,” he alleged.

He also accused the Muslim community of exploiting government resources and “tax paid by Hindus” and batted for a law to restrict to two the number of children per family.
