In a controversial statement, BJP MLA from Ballia, Surendra Singh has said that Muslims who have many wives and children in large numbers have an ‘animalistic tendency’
In a controversial statement, BJP MLA from Ballia, Surendra Singh has said that Muslims who have many wives and children in large numbers have an 'animalistic tendency'. While speaking to reporters, Singh said, "In the Muslim religion, you know that people keep 50 wives and give birth to 1050 children. This is not a tradition but an animalistic tendency. In society, giving birth to only two to four children is normal."
Surendra Singh has been in news, time and again, for his controversial statements.
On July 2, Speaking at a function on Doctors' Day in Ballia, the MLA had said that the government doctors were like "demons" who did not serve the poor.
"Doctors working in government hospitals bargain with patients and have turned into demons. I pray to God that He gives them right thinking," he had said.
Surendra Singh, then went on to say that journalists worked as 'brokers' at the local level.
"These journalists do not print good articles and only God knows what message they want to give to society," he said.
In July 2018, the Ballia legislator had said that every Hindu couple must have at least five children for Hindutva to remain intact.
In an interview to ANI, he had said that this step is necessary to increase the population of Hindus in India.
"It is the desire of every spiritual leader (mahant) for every couple to have a minimum of five children. This way the population will be under control, and Hindutva would remain intact," he said.
He once said that prostitutes are better than government officials and also once insisted that "even Lord Ram cannot stop incidents of rape".
