We’ve heard white supremacists say that white people have to have more babies to keep up with dark-skinned people. We’ve heard Christian supremacists say that Christians have to have more babies to keep up with Muslims. I give you Hindu supremacists making the same argument in India.
Sakshi Maharaj, the Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Unnao, has once again raked up a major controversy by asserting that all Hindu women must produce at least four children.
Addressing a gathering in Meerut on Tuesday he said that having four wives and 40 children is not something that will work in India and every ‘Hindu woman must therefore produce at least four children to protect the Hindu religion’.
He added that religious conversion should be punishable with death, but claimed that ‘ghar wapsi’, or reconversion, did not amount to conversion.
He asserted that the government would soon pass a law that would levy capital punishment on those indulging in cow slaughter and conversion.
Same authoritarian bullshit, different religion. You know what I’ve ever heard? An atheist say that atheists have to have lots of babies to take over.
