Nagpur, Aug. 21 : The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Sunday called for an equal citizen law for all, adding that the families should decide on the number of children it should produce.
Speaking to ANI, RSS ideologue M.G. Vaidya said all rules should be equal for all the citizens of India. "The families should think about the number of children they will be producing. Everyone has their opinion. He (Mohan Bhgwat) said it in some other words. The reality is all the rules should be equal for the all citizens of India. This is the direction of our Constitution," he added. Vaidya said the Supreme Court has informed about this to the government. "The criminal law is same. It doesn't mean a Muslim does not remain a Muslim. A special citizen law should also be there. The law should be equal for all. The Hindu families should decide on the number of children it should produce. This is the question of one's opinion. There is no need to do any politics on this," he added. Vaidya's comment come in wake of RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat recent assertion that there is no law in the country which prevents Hindus from having more children and they should take such decision keeping their family circumstances and national interest in mind.
Responding to a question on the RSS' stand on the 'disproportionate' rise in population of the Muslims vis-a-vis Hindus and fears that this could make India an 'Islamic state' in years to come, Bhagwat said, "No law prevents Hindus from growing their population.
These decisions are personal in nature and they need to be taken keeping both, personal circumstances and national interest in mind.".
