Illiteracy leading to high birth rate among Muslims: Gogoi

Sunday, 9 September 2012
Comments(28)
New Delhi, September 09:

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi kicked off a fresh controversy by blaming the high illiteracy level among the Muslims for their growing population in the state.

He said growth of Muslim population in Assam was higher than Hindus as the community give birth more children due to poor rate of literacy among themselves.

"It is because of low literacy...Illiteracy among the Muslims. Most of them are illiterate. Every family...Six, seven, eight, nine, ten...It is because of illiteracy," he told a television channel.

When repeatedly asked whether he was suggesting that illiterate people have more children, Gogoi said, "Yes, 100 per cent I believe...It is because of illiteracy.

"If you look at the 2001 census, the growth of Muslim population in Assam is less than the national average, almost three per cent. In 2011 census also growth of population in Assam is less than the national average. It is a clear indication that illegal immigration is on decline."

Gogoi said even though there were around three lakh cases pending against suspected illegal immigrants in various tribunals, many would be dismissed eventually as it is very difficult to prove the allegations.

The three-time chief minister also "challenged" the claim of Bodoland Territorial Council chief Hagrama Mohilary that there were two lakh illegal immigrants in the in BTC area saying the figure was wrong.

Asked whether he was soft towards the Bodos during the recent clashes as the Bodoland People's Front is a coalition partner of his government, Gogoi termed it as a wrong perception saying even the Bodos were accusing him of being soft towards Muslims.

"It is absolutely wrong. It is a false propaganda. I don't depend on them. I have 78 MLAs (Congress) out of 126. They (BPF) are part of the government but I don't need their support (for the survival of the government). (If I needed) why did I arrest the Bodo MLA," he said.

Admitting his "100 per cent responsibility" for the recent violence which claimed more than 80 lives, Gogoi said it was due to "procedural" reasons as there was delay in deployment of army in troubled areas to control the situation.

"It is a change of procedure that has delayed the whole process. Even the Defence Minister himself has admitted it," he said.

According to Gogoi, since there was much improvement in the situation of Assam till June, the Central government took back many paramilitary personnel from the state to be deployed in other disturbed areas.

"As the head of the state, definitely I am responsible," he said.

Reply to: 'Pls produce less children' - Pls re-check ur IMAN ...

Salaam, Subhan'Allah, You said your neighbor has 11 children, please advice him to marry another girl/divorce women to have few more.
Insha'allah soon Allah swt open more ways to feed them all.

The concept of max two children is of Non-believers, make sure, do you still hold IMAN ???
A Muslim.

Yes, there is a difference

Yes, there is a difference between animals and humans.
But look at the West whose values are mostly Jewish and Christian. Look at their condition. They have become so degraded morally that they have become worst than animals. Just being born to a human will not make a person human. He should know what is right and wrong. Believe in one God who is neither born nor bear any children. God is not from mankind ! Think seriously.

have maximum childeren

These people are hate mongers and has no deen. Muslims should have maximum childeren and Allah(SWT) is the one who feeds them, but when we will give them knowledge of deen then inshallah they will become better people and will be able to live according to the commands of Allah(SWT) other people live according to the means but muslims always look at the treasures of Allah(SWT) for that we need to make our imaan strong then the help of Allah(SWT) will be with us. All the resources will run short but the treasures of Allah(SWT) is in abundance the only thing we can make effort on is to build strong imaan and do the effort of deen so that the entire humanity which is at loss and will enter jahanam if they do not recognize Allah(SWT) will enter into jahanam for ever be saved from that jahanam by recognizing there creator, sustainer, cherisher.. They will do that when we will inshallah make effort to bring deen in our life and the effort in the whole world.

there is a difference between animals and humans

The difference between animals and humans is that humans use family control whereas animals do not.
Humans see their capacity for rearing the children and act accordingly,whereas animals do it a a pure biological response.
Humans are ahead of animals because they use their reasoning which has been given to them by Christ.

Pls produce less children

It is not illiteracy but the religion which preaches to have more number of population and poverty among muslims. My neighbour has 11 children and can hardly feed 5 of them. I am muslim but i certainly dont go along having Allah ki den thing becuase there muslims like me how are wise and produce max two children and live life without hinderance and burden of feeding 10 people. ya..Allah!

Lack of education is due to neglect of States minorities

Lack of Muslim Community’s Economic Progress is due to INACTION and LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY of those responsible in Government for implementation of Minority Welfare Programs.
The reasons for the lack of economic progress of Muslims lies mainly not in the lack of knowledge of what is needed, but in the unwillingness or inability of central and state governments to do what is needed in spite of the studies and recommendations of Commissions which are piling high in government archives. All studies recommended more or less the same thing, but little or nothing had ever been done about any of them by Congress. Knowledge of what to do was obviously not the problem!

he is a idiot degrading muslims

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is a idiot and degrading muslims and encouraging hindus.

illiteracy and poverty linked to increase population

That is absolutely true.
Illiterate people generally dont know the value of education.
An autodriver /puncture mechanic,vegetable vendor have more children, who they dont send to school and send to work at the age of 10-12 years and earn some money to just survive and put in family kitty.
Girls are send to work as housemaids and the pretty ones are married to wealthy sheikhs.
At the other end the doctors/engineers and even the editor of papers have only 2-3 children who they give the best of education and ensure that they occupy good places in society,like IAS/IPS,highly placed bank officers/PSU etc.
Rather than throw a fit at the comment,we need to introspect and understand that we Muslims are at the bottom of the economic ladder all over the world.
We have not even contributed half percent to the advancement of this world

Reply to atif aslam

You are absolutely an ass hole. There is no reality in it. There are kids of many officers who were less in numbers as a family but got no literacy where as there are much successful people with high literacy and got elevated tremendously in their lives whose families are big. Hence, literacy has nothing to do with the population. Being a muslim, it is our belief that there is no life without the wish of ALLAH SWT and every life is destined to get whatever is written for it. It seems that you are totally ignorant with the islamic history and illiterate enough as the contribution of Muslims to this world is not legible to you.

Pagal

Abay wo haulay to ya to koi hindu hai jo muslim ke naam se comment post karra ... ya phir koi bewaqoof muslim hai.

jo bhi ho tu kyu cm ki tarafdari karra re .... haule tera baap kaiku paida kara phir itti aulad ku.

Shame Less

I hope the Assam CM itself illiterate he is not capable to run the govt in Assam that’s why he issued a unmitigated statement in media. First maintain the law & order in your state where thousands of innocent muslim killed by bhuddy fanatic people, shame on you on you govt & on your parents that gave a birth such like you stupid, shameless & heinous child.

Bodo kay logan nafrat main chakkay hogain. Aur musalman apna kaam zor o shor se kar rahay hain,aur Allah is main barkat dal raha hai. Is main padhai aur likhai kaan say agai miyan?

Bull Shit !!!

Can anyone make me understand what literacy has to do with the population? This idiot instead of controlling the law and order in his state he is blaming one particular community for growing population. OK if muslim population is growing faster then other community it doesn't mean that somebody will take the law in his own hand by killing innocent muslims. Why muslims are illiterate and poor? Despite this good for nothing person was the cheif minister of that state what he done for muslims?

Thats right!

Thats right Mr. What illeteracy has to do with population? What his govt. is doing while ppl are illiterate under his nose? He is having his third term as CM, where are the govt. policies for literacy? He is deliberatly following the foot steps of Narendra Modi and definately RSS is playing major role in controlling and giving bull shit reasons for delay in deploying army during riots. This is nothing but pre planned riots and i blame Gogai for it. 100%
