Religion in numbers: BJP MPs Adityanath, Sakshi Maharaj raise alarm over Muslim population

Religion in numbers: BJP MPs Adityanath, Sakshi Maharaj raise alarm over Muslim population - Gorakhpur MP and BJP leader Yogi Adityanath said that the growth in Muslim population in the last ten years "is an alarming and dangerous situation for the country," as reported by the Indian Express.

Adityanath made this statement a day after the released data revealed an increase of 24.6% in Muslim population as compared to 16.8% in Hindu population between the 2001 and 2011.

Indian Express reported that other than Yogi Adityanath, Unnao MP and BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj demanded a "Uniform Civil Code" as well as formation of laws to keep population growth in check.

He said that the measures should be adopted by the central government which would ensure the applicability of the slogan 'Hum Do Humare Do' to all religious communities.

Gorakhpur MP said, "If the Muslim population continues to increase at the same rate, there will be a situation of population imbalance? after 50 years, which may repeat the unfortunate tragedies like division of the country (1947) and migration of Hindus and Sikhs from Kashmir (1990)."

Sakshi Maharaj said in a statement, "They (clerics) should also feel concerned and issue 'fatwas' like they did for the celebration of Independence Day at religious educational institutions to show their affection for the nation."
