Don’t get into the trap of two child norm : RSS Chief

via HK published on November 18, 2005

New Delhi : Expressing serious concern over the country’s changing demographic profile, RSS chief K S Sudarshan on Thursday asked Hindus to produce not less than three children and called for an end to the majority-minority concept.


 


“Don’t get into the trap of two child or one child norm. If you go by the one child norm, in the next 120 years, there won’t be any successors in your family. You should not have less than three children and if you have more, the merrier it is”, he said after releasing a publication Religious demography of India 2001 brought out by the Centre for Policy Studies in Delhi. Dismissing concerns that population growth could result in unemployment, he said people should look at self-employment as an option and not depend on jobs.


 


About ban on divorce among Muslims through triple ‘talaq’, he said “you cannot push the women into the streets like that. Every marriage and divorce should be registered. There should be a uniform civil code and modernisation of Muslim education”.


 


Asserting that 99.99 per cent of Muslims and Christians shared the same blood and same ancestors with the Hindus, the RSS chief said, “they have only changed the way of worship. Minority is when you migrate from a different country, not when even your ancestors belonged to this country.


 


“The only two minorities in the country are the Parsees and Jews but even they have refused minority status. Why should there be any minorities at all. You bow before the Vatican out of faith but live and die for the country”.


 


Sudarshan said that even a Supreme Court judge belonging to a minority community had called him and agreed with the theory that there should be no minorities.
