'Fertility rate higher among Muslims, they want to turn India into Islamic state': BJP MLA Hari Bhushan Thakur
Bihar BJP MLA Hari Bhushan Thakur has triggered a controversy with his remarks on the fertility rate of Muslims.
Elected to the Bisfi Assembly constituency on a BJP ticket in 2020, Hari Bhushan Thakur said the fertility rate in Muslims was higher than in Hindus.
"Muslims want to convert India into an Islamic state," the Legislator went on to remark.
Hari Bhushan Thakur made the comment in response to Bihar CM Nitish Kumar's claim that the fertility rate in the state has declined tremendously. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had made the statement while delivering a Motion of Thanks to the Governor in the state Assembly on Tuesday.
