Increasing population of Muslims in India must be stopped: RSS

NEW DELHI: Recent population of Muslims in India is more than 17 Crores. The RSS executive committee meeting beginning on Friday is expected to adopt a resolution calling for a check in the “imbalance” of population growth. RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya said the recent census which had just come showed an imbalance in the growth of population. The recent census showed that the Muslim community had registered a moderate 0.8 per cent growth to touch 17.22 crore in the 10 year period between 2001 and 2011, up from 13.8 crore, while Hindus population showed a decline by 0.7 per cent at 96.63 crore during the period. “Our present and future is getting impacted by it. We need to rise above vote bank politics to formulate a holistic approach, equally applicable to all citizens, towards the population policy. "Recently, the Hazarika Commission report has given a startling information about changing demographic situation in Assam and Bengal. If the trend continues then population of Indians would be reduced and foreigners would be increased," he said .
