New Delhi: The politics of religion do not take a backseat yet. The working president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Pravin Togadia has once again raked up the issue of growth in population of Muslims in the country.
In an article published in RSS mouthpiece ‘Organiser’, Togadia said, “Bharat withstood 400+ years of Muslim rule but with a permanently damaged culture and surroundings. Now, If we don’t stand up against ‘Population Jihad’, Bharat will soon become an Islamic State.”

“As said apart from the Uniform Civil Code, which is strongly recommended in the Constitution, it is also must to strictly implement two children norm irrespective of political pressures,” he added.
“Rather than subsidising each birth of a Muslim kid, it is must that after two children, there has to be the strictest curb. Perhaps a punishable criminal offence offence and stopping the ration, jobs, educational facilities will streamline the population facilitation towards better development,” Togadia said.
