UP: Hindus should 'produce more children', says BJP MLA Vikram Saini
While population control remains a major concern for the policymakers, a BJP MLA has said that Hindus should not stop producing children until a law for population control comes into existence.
Ironically, Vikram Saini, who represents Khatauli constituency in Muzaffarnagar district, made these remarks while addressing a population control campaign program.
A video of the BJP MLA urging his Hindu supporter to have more children also surfaced on the social media.
"When we had two children, my wife said we did not need a third one, but I said we should have four to five," he said.
"I appeal to my Hindu brothers to not stop. If the law is made it will be foe everyone in this country," he went on to say.
He further said that Hindus have accepted the two-child policy, but others have not who still produce dozens.
Saini is not new to controversies. In January, he had said that "Hindustan is for Hindus" while asking Muslims to go to Pakistan.
Last year, Saini had threatened to break the bones of those who kill and disrespect cows.
