“Muslims Using Most Contraceptives”: Owaisi Hits Back At Yogi On His Remarks Over ‘Population Imbalance’

The country’s demographic dividend is the best among all countries, the total fertility rate has fallen to 2.3 from 2.6, says AIMIM Chief.

Mumbai: Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday said hit out at Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath over his comments on population imbalance among religions.” The total fertility rate which was at 2.6 percent in 2016, had now fallen to 2.3 percent”, he said.

A day ago Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said it was important to ensure that efforts to control the population did not result in “population imbalance” between religions. He said, “In the countries where  the situation of population imbalance arises, it affects the religious demography, and after a while, chaos and anarchy start taking place.”

CM Yogi further added, “It should not happen that the percentage of population growth of any one class is more while we work on population control with awareness on the ‘mool nivasi’ (native residents). People should be made conscious to control the population through efforts of stabilization, to stop the situation from getting worrisome.

Countering this, the AIMIM Chief said, “Are Muslims not natives of India? If we see the reality, natives are only tribals and Dravidian people. In UP, without any law, desired fertility rate would be achieved by 2026-2030.”

“Their own health minister said that no law is needed in the country for population control. It’s Muslims who’re using most contraceptives. The total fertility rate which was 2.6 in 2016 is now 2.3. The country’s demographic dividend is best among all countries,” the AIMIM chief further added.
