    ‘Hang people with more than 2 kids’, Azam Khan’s jibe at Giriraj linking rising population to religion

    Giriraj Singh stated that population explosion is disturbing social harmony and balance in the country.

    New Delhi: Taking a jibe at Union Minister Giriraj Singh’s statement linking rising population to religion, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan said that the husband and wife should be hanged in a family where more than two children are born. He went on to say, ‘Unke liye dua kijiye” (Pray for him), when asked to respond to Singh’s statement.

    Union Minister Giriraj Singh seems to have courted controversy yet again on July 11 when he expressed concerns about the rising population in the country and linked it to religion.

    The Union Minister of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries posted his views on Twitter stating that population explosion is disturbing social harmony and balance in the country.

    His post in Hindi translates as, “Population explosion in India is disturbing social harmony and balance. Religious interference is also a reason related to population control. Like in 1947, India is heading towards division on the basis of culture. Every political party should come forward to make laws regarding population control.”

    Incidentally, today is World Population Day.
