New Delhi: BJP's motormouth leader Giriraj Singh's another controversial remark made at yesterday's event has stirred up a storm on social media.
As per a report in Rediff.com, Singh during an event in West Champaran on Thursday, stoked controversy by saying that most of the beef eaters are from prestigious educational institute IIT.
"Aaj samaj mein jo bachche gir gaye hain ha, gau maans kha rahein hain. Padhe likhe dus log jo gau maans kha rahein hain unmein se nau IITs ke hain (People who have fallen in society eat beef. Out of 10 educated people who eat beef, 9 are from IITs)," the report stated.
Singh on Thursday proposed to revoke the voting rights of those having more than two children in order to help develop the nation.
"If Malaysia and Indonesia can make the law then there must be a strict law. The nation won't progress without population control. There must be a balance. Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians - all must have at least one to two children. Those who don't follow, their voting rights must be revoked," Singh said.
He further stated the decline in Hindu population is worrying.
"A law is needed on population control for all religions if development is required. The people of the nation must express their thoughts and discuss it. The media showed the condition of the Hindus in Pakistan," he added.
Singh yesterday said that if India did not change its population policy and enforce a two-child norm for all religions then the daughters will not be safe and might have to be kept under the veil like in Pakistan.
