‘I don’t have one’: Taslima Nasreen on the Muslim population, ‘You are more civilized…’ | Latest India News

Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen said that the more civilized one is, the fewer children one has. “My grandma had 11 kids, my mom had 4, my sister has 1 kid, I have none,” the author tweeted.

Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen recently said that it is not true that the Muslim community has produced many children. “The more civilized you are, the fewer children you have,” the author tweeted, comparing herself to her sister, mother and grandmother. Although the Muslim author’s comment does not specify any country, the remarks come amid the dispute over the Muslim population.

“It is not true that the Muslim community reproduces many children. Any community needs more than enough children if the infant mortality rate is high. My grandmother had 11 children, my mother had 4, my sister has 1 child, I have none. The more civilized you are, the less children you have,” the author tweeted.

Recently, AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi said that Muslims are using contraceptives to the maximum, responding to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s comment on demographic imbalance. Following a United National report that India is set to overtake China as the world’s most populous country in 2023, Uttar Pradesh’s chief minister says the population control program must continue without creating a demographic imbalance. By demographic imbalance, he meant: “It should not happen that the speed of population growth or the percentage of certain communities is high and that we stabilize the population of the ‘moolniwasi’ (indigenous) through awareness or enforcement.”

Reacting to this comment, Owaisi wondered if Muslims did not originate from India and dismissed the claim that Muslims are the reason for population growth. He later also said he would never support a law requiring only two children. “India’s total fertility rate is declining. By 2030 it will level off. We must not repeat China’s mistakes,” Owaisi said earlier.
