    Apparently this article has not been posted before as a thread. So I'm putting it up here. Praveen Togadia is a significant political leader and what he has said is undoubtedly controversial, but certainly interesting reading. It would appear that he is advocating future Indian expansionism. Any comments?

    This guy is a joker and will get zero votes if he contests elections. He has no support from anyone, be it nationalist hindus or secularists or anyone at all. He is a crass, low-class, morally depraved individual, not all that different from the terrorists he allegedly hates.

    This is a much more sensible statement than all the other assorted loudmouths who have been shooting off their mouths recently.

    A 2-child policy is the need of the hour. It should be applied uniformly.

    But is he advocating Indian expansionism to Aghanistan through Pakistan and to Bangladesh? What does he mean by this claim?

    I kinda agree with this guy.

    Why are 'liberal' lobbies so worried about population control, is my surprise.

    I thought they also wanted India's betterment.

    Population control for limited time would help balance it out.

    Not to mention control the breeding in a certain group of people.

    Population control and two child policies and all are good but i just hope we don't end up controlling ourselves while others get to do what they like unchecked

    WRT to the actual fertility rates itself:
    India to reach replacement levels of fertility by 2020 - The Hindu

    Fertility rates in most states have actually come down, and are quite close to replacement rates, southern states seem to be below the replacement rate.

    Maybe some communities are not responding the govt programs that have tried to convince people not to have kids they cant support. Some people are also mentioning illegal immigration for the change, but I doubt if it can account for such a big change, alone. It's probably a combination of the two. At the same time J&K is only at 1.9.

    There are some chaps in the fringe organisation, affiliated to organisations, affiliated to the BJP (the governing dispensation in India) who have an anathema for Modi and his rise.

    They are out to embarrass Modi and put the spanner in the works by spouting populist thought that will irk the minority. especially the Muslim community.

    Togadia, who comes from the same State as Modi i.e. Gujarat, was a strident voice for Hindu regeneration. His voice Modi had cut to size.

    Is he a "Political Leader"??? :rolleyes:

    Is he a elected representative through Democratic System like Owaisi?

    Anyway... what he has said is not really controversial bur rather need of the hour.The Indian population needs to be controlled but I guess 1 community would claim it as "controversy" since they love producing like rats.

    Also can anyone please confirm if the demographic based stats is released after 2001.I heard that Congress didn't let this report come since "Secular" community has increased by leaps and bounds. :hmm:

    @jackprince @sasi @Mad Indian this is how you put your point. Many people would agree with him and the hidden point behind his statement.

    The idea seems justified.

    Population is a critical aspect and the government needs to manage it, particularly if one community seems to consider itself above what others are expected to follow.

    Not sure a law would stand in a democratic society though, the way forward is to incentivize one-two children and disincentivize more than that.

    this is going back to the old days of anglo-saxon fear-inspired
    family-planning "philosophy" where they were afraid of becoming a minority on the world stage
    as inida , china and south america were set to have their populations boom compared to theirs.

    give them credit for never giving up and trying again under different guise(s)
    a few decades later

    Well those falling fertility rates won't tell the whole story ,take for instance kerala , the hindu and christian communities have been having negative growth rate for almost more than a decade now yet kerala on average reamins positive this on account of muslim community alone and this despite that fact that literacy among all communities irrespective of gender has been traditionally high . Seeing the decadel growth rate its fair to assume that keral might be one of the very first states where hindus become a minority in the coming decades or so (technically if you eclude ezhavas/sc/st - they are already a minority) - this becomes more evident if you look at constituion of Kerala's current cabinet which ,i suppose , has highest minority held portfolios in the country including CM and majority rep makes up only 44% of the births
