Hindu population down in UP: VHP

The three day meet which would commence from June 23 onwards will be held at Patna. The VHP decided to undertake this exercise after it had got reports from several areas in UP where the population of Hindus had gone down.

The VHP says that Hindus in most of these areas were in majority 60 years back, but due to migration the population had gone down.

The VHP's exercise would focus around studying the declining population and also the reasons behind the migration. The issue had gained steam after allegations were made about a large exodus of Hindus from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh.
