Competitive Copulation: All Religions want more kids

Last week BJP MP, Sakshi Maharaj made his infamous comment that “A Hindu woman must have at least four children“. This of course drew the ire of most people and he even trended on Twitter for some while, thanks to all the outrage. Today, another BJP leader, Shyamal Goswami from West Bengal has gone on to say that “Hindu women should have five children”. And as we write this, he is being discussed on Social Media, may trend on Twitter, but will surely get the honour of featuring on some prime time News debates.

But we are more concerned about those other individuals who make similar statements, which encourage more kids per family, but are never covered by any News Channel, nor do they trend on Twitter. Its time we recognise the stupidity efforts of these outstanding individuals also and give them their due:

 

1. Syro-Malabar Church – Kerala: Catholics should have 5 children
The Syro-Malabar Church (SMC), apparently India’s largest church with 3.6 million members, supported large families way back in 2011. This was in response to a report by a committee which suggested penalising those with more than 2 children (from any religion). In fact one of the dioceses under SMC, even declared a cash prize of Rs 10000 for the fifth child.

 

2. Dr Zakir Naik – No Need for Population Control
In this  video uploaded in 2012, Dr Zakir Naik, noted speaker on Islam, clearly says that family planning is not necessary since “Allah will take care of everyone”. Even on this facebook page, Zakir Naik makes it clear that “Family Planning is Haraam”. Arnab if you’re reading, pls stop this discrimination and have Dr Naik on your show as well!

 

3. Thrissur archbishop Mar Andrews Thazhath: “Honour couples with more children”

Way back in 2008, the Archbishop, in a letter read in churches in Kerala, reiterated the Church’s opposition to abortion. He also asked his church brethren to “honour couples with more children.”

 

4. Government of India: Parsis, ‘Be responsible, don’t use a condom tonight’
In November 2014, the Government of India, came out with the “Jiyo Parsi” campaign, to push Parsis to have more children. An elaborate Advertisement campaign was designed by Madison Advertising, to spread the word.
