RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat raises concern over 'religion-based population imbalance'

Nagpur/IBNS: Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of Hindu nationalist volunteer organisation and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s ideological parent, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), raised concern over the "religion-based population imbalance" in his customary speech at the Dussehra rally here Wednesday.

Bhagwat said as quoted by various media, "Population imbalance leads to changes in geographical boundaries... Population control and religion-based population balance is an important subject that can no longer be ignored..."

"So a holistic population policy should be brought & should be equally applicable to all."

Bhagwat also named a few countries which were formed due to "religion-based population imbalance".

"Birth rate is one reason; conversions by force, lure or greed, and infiltration are also big reasons," he added as quoted by NDTV.

Bhagwat in his speech also touched upon issues related to women.

"We need to treat women with equality and empower them with equality and empower them with freedom of making their own decisions," he added.
