Union Minister of State Giriraj Singh on Sunday said that the Hindu society needs to increase their population as it has been continuously decreasing in eight states of the country. He said that the Muslim population has grown from 10% to 24% since partition.
Addressing a programme at Devbad area of Saharanpur district he added that religion can protect us only if we do the same for it. “People of the country are demanding a Ram temple, but how will a Ram temple be made if there are no Ram-bhakts in the country,” he said
Singh claimed that there were 22% Hindus in Pakistan which has now decreased to 1 percent, while in India the Hindu population at that time was 90% and Muslims constituted 10 per cent, but now the population of Muslims has gone up to 24% while that of Hindus have declined to 76%.
