Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Surendra Singh opined that every Hindu couple must have at least five children for Hindutva to remain intact.
Singh, in an interview to media, said this step is necessary to increase the population of Hindus in India.
“It is the desire of every spiritual leader (mahant) for every couple to have a minimum of five children. This way the population will be under control, and Hindutva would remain intact,” he noted.
Surendra Singh has been in the news, time and again, for his controversial statements.
Earlier this month, the BJP MLA from Ballia had triggered a controversy by saying that even Lord Ram would not have been able to put an end to the rising rape incidents.
“This is natural pollution, which has not left anybody untouched. It is people’s responsibility to treat others as their family, as their sisters. We can only control it through values, not the constitution,” Singh said when asked about the sudden spurt in incidents of sexual abuse in Uttar Pradesh.(Minimal edits applied, story generated from syndicated ANI feed)
