Ballia (UP): A child is a gift from god and every Hindu should have at least five, two for the man, two for the woman and one surplus, BJP’s controversial Uttar Pradesh MLA Surendra Singh has said.

Hindus will become a minority if there is “no balance” in population control, the legislator from Bairia, who earlier this month said rape cannot be curbed even if Lord Ram descends on earth, told reporters on Wednesday night.

“Hindus should have at least five children. Two for the man, two for the woman and one surplus. Giving birth to a child is ‘prasad’ (gift) from God. India can become strong, when Hindus are strong. When Hindu is weak, India is weak...,” Mr Singh said.

According to him, the Hindu community should be concerned that they will become a minority if there is “no balance in population control” and have more children.

“Hindus will be a minority, not due to terrorists but due to themselves,” he said.

Mr Singh’s statements have often put the state’s ruling BJP in an embarrassing spot. After the Kairana Lok Sabha and Noorpur assembly bypolls earlier this year, he blamed ministers in the Yogi Adityanath government for the party’s humiliating defeat.
