Time to summon myths, busted myths created by Hindutva groups to bring down Muslims: SY Qureshi

Hindus are a close second if Muslims have the highest birth , the former CEC reported.

Announcing that the time has come to expose the “myths created by Hindutva groups” for the performance of Muslims, former Chief Election Commissioner SY Qureshi says Islam is not hostile to the concept of family planning and all in India Muslims are the least polygamous among the communities.

There is no organized conspiracy by Muslims to overtake Hindus in terms of population and their numbers can never be rival to the Hindus of the , Mr. Qureshi in his newly released book “The Population Myth: Islam , “Family Planning and Politics in India”. “.

He uses facts and figures to demolish the propaganda that he is reaching for “Crescendo”.

“If you repeat a lie a hundred times, it becomes true,” Mr. Qureshi added in an interview. PTI On his book.

The publicity, he said, has become “very blunt” and has gained traction, and it is time to challenge the narrative that has been heard against the community for years.

One myth that most Muslims also believe is that Islam is against family planning. But that's not all, Mr. Qureshi said.

“A close look at Islamic jurisprudence shows that Islam is not against family planning. On the contrary, it is a pioneer of the concept, a fact that has been blurred over the years due to skewed interpretations of the Quran and Hadith,” Mr. Qureshi said.

“I have argued that family planning is not prohibited anywhere in the Quran,” he asserted, stating that there are only interpretations – or against.

‘Islam is a supporter of family planning ideas'

Islam explained that he supports the idea of ​​family planning because it expects the youth to marry only if they have prostitution to support the family. The former bureaucrat who was the Chief Election Commissioner from July 2010 to June 2012 said, “It great emphasis on the health of mothers and children and the need for proper upbringing.”

Mr. Qureshi has argued in his book that family planning is not really a Hindu-versus-Muslim issue because two communities have similar statistics and stand “shoulder to shoulder” in socio-economic indicators that affect family planning behavior Huh.

Their socio-economic conditions are specific areas, and this determines their reproductive behavior.

It is true that a Hindu-Muslim fertility gap persists in India's demographic reality, but it is due to the relative backwardness of Muslims in all factors that determine reproductive behavior – literacy, income, and some of them access to services.

Polygamy is one of the myths he attempted to break in his book. Mr. Qureshi said that Hindutva groups have propagated that Muslims marry four wives so that they can marry their wives with statements like “Hum Chale Hamre Chels” and “Hum Panche Hamre Pacheche” to increase their population. .

“The trends, through three decisive censorship from 1931 to 1960, confirm that there is a reduction of polygamy in all communities, but among all of them, and, most importantly, at least among Muslims, the issue. But as per the only government report, “he said in a interview.

‘Muslim society considers polygamy with polygamy'

In fact, Muslim society in India generally performs polygamy with polygamy, he said. He is “seen as an outsider in his family,” polygamy is also not statistically possible in India because the sex ratio (only 924 females per 1,000 males) does not allow it. The propaganda, repeated and orchestrated, is meant to arouse suspicion and fear in the minds of Hindus. Qureshi said, ‘Hinduism is in Khatre' (Hinduism is in danger), the number of Muslims will increase and occupy political power, “with the express purpose of deliberately driving a wedge between Hindus and Muslims”. .

While it is true that the proportion of Hindus has declined in 70 years – 84.1% to 79.8% – with the steady increase in the population of minorities, predominantly Muslim, the pace of Muslim of family planning has accelerated in the last three decades. It has been, he said.

‘If Muslims have the highest birth rate, Hindus are close to each other'

Hindus are a close second if Muslims have the highest birth rates, the former CEC reported.

Even in absolute numbers, Hindus have nothing to fear, Mr. Qureshi said, in 1951 there were 30 crore more Hindus than Muslims and by 2011 the gap had increased to 80 crores.

He said that no one reprimanded this propaganda. To underline his reasoning, Mr. Qureshi has added a mathematical model to the book. Mr. Qureshi also addresses himself to the issue of women and the perception that Islam treats them badly. Nothing, he said, could be farther from the truth. 14 centuries ago, Islam recognized women as equal partners of men in all walks of life. Muslim women got property rights 1,400 years ago, while women from the rest of the world got it in the 20th century.

He also hurt the argument that Muslims were a vote bank, saying that they would be politically powerful if they were really a solid vote bank, “They get crores in the name of power.” They would not have dreamed of becoming a political force if they were a vote bank in Bengal and Kerala, despite having 30 per cent and UP and Bihar 20 per cent. Instead, a token he receives is ‘Minority Minister'. “The Muslim vote gets divided and they don't vote en bloc,” he argued.

Mr. Qureshi says in his book that population stabilization is now fine with 24 states of 29 reaching below the replacement rate of 2.1. “We need to focus on the four largest states in the Hindi belt that are pulling us down. If the mass march to the cherished goal of population stabilization continued uninterrupted, the country would continue to reap the benefits of demographic dividend and the global Can expect to become economical. Super power very soon, “he said.

He also urged Muslims not to indulge in hate propaganda and war, but adopt family planning in the interest of the community and the country.
