Jambusar: VHP International Working President Pravin Togadia on Saturday asked Hindu men to ‘go home and worship your manhood’ in order to have more children.
According to a report, Togadia blamed tobacco as a major cause of ‘impotency’ among Hindu men which led to a fall in the percentage of the country’s Hindu population.
According to official statistics, the Hindu population in India stands at 79.8%, down from 84.1% in 1951.
Addressing a gathering at Jambusar in Bharuch district to induct fresh blood into the saffron outfit, Togadia asked Hindu couples to have more children to counter the growing numbers of Muslims in India.
He also blamed “love jihad” and conversion to Christianity for slipping percentage of Hindu population.
Amid chants of “Jai Shree Ram”, Togadia said, “Now, the population of Hindus will rise… say no to conversion and yes ghar wapsi; say no to love jihad and yes to uniform civil code; say no to Bangladeshi Muslims… have more children in Hindu households.”
Togadia, who is a doctor by qualification, then advertised a product he had prepared which would apparently yield more children.
“This is a product that I have created. It is available for Rs 600, but I’m giving out to you for Rs 500 here. Take this to your wife, ask her to mix it with your meals so that you remain potent and continue to produce children,” he said.
Togadia claimed that the rise in Hindu population would stop cow slaughter.
The VHP leader also slammed the “government’s policy of development without offering protection to Hindus”. He attacked the Modi government for ‘making bullet trains and smart cities’, offering the strange logic that “Who will travel in the trains if there is no Hindu?”
At the event, trishuls were distributed among around 50 youths who then took a pledge never to use them on a Hindu.
