All Hindu women in the country must produce four children to protect the religion, BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj has reportedly said at a gathering, stirring another row.
“The concept of four wives and 40 children will not work in India and the time has come when a Hindu woman must produce at least four children in order to protect Hindu religion,” the Lok Sabha MP from Unnao in UP was heard saying at Sant Samaagam Mahotsava in Meerut on Tuesday, The Times of India reported .
He also reportedly said at the same gathering that a law would be passed in Parliament to make cow slaughter and conversion punishable with death.
He also reportedly said that “no power on earth can stop the construction of Ram mandir in Ayodhya”.
Sakshi Maharaj is not new to controversy. Last year, he said Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse was a patriot. He subsequently apologised in Parliament.
