New Delhi: Yati Narsinghanand, who has already made a number of contentious and offensive statements, has now asked Hindus to have more children in order to avoid the country from becoming “Hindu-less” in the next decades. Narsinghanand, the head priest of Ghaziabad’s Dasna temple, stated that India will have a non-Hindu Prime Minister in 2029, citing “mathematical calculations.”
Mathematical calculations state that a non-Hindu will become the prime minister in 2029,” news agency PTI quoted Narsinghanand as saying at Govardhan on Thursday. He, however, offered no explanation on how he arrived at the date or data.
“If once, a non-Hindu becomes the prime minister, then in 20 years, this country will become a ‘Hindu-viheen’ (Hindu-less),” he said. Narsinghanand is currently out on bail in the Haridwar hate speech case.
He said “in order to awaken Hindutva”, a Dharma Sansad will be held in the Mathura-Govardhan region from August 12 to August 14.
He also spoke at a ‘Hindu Mahapanchayat’ at the Burari venue in Delhi on Sunday, claiming that if a Muslim became India’s prime minister, “50 percent of Hindus will convert” in 20 years. He also urged Hindus to pick up arms in order to fight for their survival.
The Delhi government denied authorization for the event at the time, but the organisers went ahead with it anyhow.
