Asaduddin Owaisi, the leader of AIMIM and a member of parliament from Hyderabad, stated that RSS chairman Mohan Bhagwat is concerned about India’s population but will never speak on the ‘truth’ that Muslims use condoms the most.
“The Muslim population is not at all increasing. Why are you concerned for no reason? The Muslim population is declining,” Owaisi responed to Mohan Bhagwat’s Dusshera speech in which he targeted Muslim community in the name of community-based imbalance.” At his Dasshera speech, Bhagwat said that alongside the differences in birth rate, conversions by force lure or greed and infiltration are also big reasons.
“Please don’t take tension. The Muslim population is on the decline. The gap between two children is called spacing. Do you know who is maintaining that the most? The Muslims. Who is using condoms the most? We are doing. But Mogan Bhagwat won’t speak on this. I am giving facts. The population is not increasing, Mohan Bhagwat Saab. Please stick to data while sticking,” Owaisi said.
We should examine what transpired in China as we attempt to regulate the population. That nation adopted a one-child policy, and as a result, it is ageing.“With 57 crore youth population in India, we will remain a young nation for next 30 years,” Bhagwat said. “However, what will happen to India after 50 years? Will we have enough food to feed the population?” he added.
The chief minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, responded angrily to Mohan Bhagwat’s remark about population control, claiming that the remarks were intended to inflame communal polarisation.”RSS Chief’s statement that there is a religion-based imbalance in India’s population is baseless and aimed at fueling communal polarisation in the country. Secular and democratic forces must expose this vicious move and stand firm against communal bigotry,” he said.
Owaisi also slammed Mohan Bhagwat’s remark, tweeting that there shouldn’t be any imbalance since Hindus and Muslims have the same “DNA.”
“If Hindus & Muslims have “same DNA” then where’s the imbalance? There’s no need for population control as we’ve already achieved replacement rate. The worry is an ageing population & unemployed youth who cannot support elderly. Muslims have sharpest decline in fertility rate,” Owaisi tweeted.
“For Mohan, it is Annual Day of Dog Whistles and Hate Speech. Fear-mongering over ‘population imbalance’ has resulted in genocide, ethnic cleansing & hate crimes across the world. Kosovo was created after a genocide of Albanian Muslims by Serbian nationalists,” he tweeted earlier.
