When it comes to identifying grave issues and suggesting solutions, our politicians never fail to impress. So while addressing a public event, a BJP leader came up with a novel idea for our junta. Vikram Saini, a BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh’s Khatauli constituency in Muzaffarnagar district suggested that Hindus should keep ‘producing kids’ until there’s a law against it. By the way, he said this during a population control programme event.
In his speech, the leader said that while Hindus have adopted a two-child policy (in some cases, a one-child policy), other communities are still producing 18 kids. He asked Hindus to continue producing kids till a common law is passed for population control. Saini also went on to narrate his own example and said, “When we had two children, my wife said we did not need a third one, but I said we should have four to five. I told her don’t worry, I may be thin but you are heavy.” In a world as twisted and misogynistic as ours, his speech was obviously received with applause.

Saini, an accused in the 2013 Muzzafarnagar riots case, is quite familiar with making communal remarks and this speech hardly seems surprising. His recent statement is just a repetition of what many right-wing Hindutva leaders always have said.
