According to the reports, AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal said that Muslims will continue to produce children and will not listen to anyone. “The government has brought this law to stop Muslims from having jobs. According to the Sachar committee, below 2 per cent of Muslims get government jobs. Literate people are now increasing among the Muslim community and they are working across the world,” Badruddin Ajmal said.

Badruddin Ajmal further added that their religion (Islam) and he himself personally believe that those who want to come to the world will come and no one can stop it. Hitting out at the BJP-led Assam government, Badruddin Ajmal said whatever laws the government make, they will have no impact on the Muslims.

“Tampering with nature is not good. Muslims will do whatever they want to bear children. Don’t shout later that we have more children. Don’t fight with nature,” said Ajmal.

Badruddin Ajmal further said, “On one side, the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat asks to produce 10-10 children and on the other side, the government says that no government jobs will be given to the people having more than two children. First, they should decide what they want. They don’t follow what RSS said.”
