Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal 22 August snubbed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat over his comment on the 'declining' population of Hindus in India.
Kejriwal said that the RSS chief should himself produce 10 babies first rather than provoking the people of the Hindu community.
हिंदुओं को भड़काने के पहले भागवत जी ख़ुद 10 बच्चे पैदा करके उनकी अच्छी परवरिश करके दिखायें https://t.co/ApCuBzpZz5— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) August 22, 2016
Bhagwat had on 21 August said that the population of the Hindus was declining. "What is stopping the Hindus when population of others is rising?" he had asked.
"Which law says that the population of Hindus should not rise? There is nothing like that. What is stopping them when population of others is rising? The issue is not related to the system. It is because the social environment is like this," Bhagwat had said.
Earlier in the day, the Shiv Sena also slammed Bhagwat and said that his claims were outdated. The Sena claimed that the progressive members of the Hindu community wouldn't agree with his thoughts.
