Sena wants family planning for Muslims

After stoking controversy with its demand that Muslims be stripped of their voting rights, Shiv Sena on Wednesday advocated compulsory family planning for Muslims and Christians to check their “rising” population.

“By only increasing the population, one can try and convert the country into Pakistan, but cannot give quality and healthy life to one’s family,” the BJP ally in Maharashtra said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’. Sena backed All India Hindu Mahasabha vice-president Sadhvi Deva Thakur on the issue.

“Sadhvi Deva says the increasing population of Muslims and Christians is dangerous for the country and they should be, therefore, forcibly sterilised. She should have used the word family planning instead sterilisation,” it said.
