From Swami Govinddev Giri asking Hindu couples to bear at least four children to stabalize Hindu population to BJP’s Unnao MP Sakshi Maharaj asking Hindus to give atleast one child to them so that they can train them to become a sadhu, why are Hindu godmen obsessed with women’s wombs?
Even as such Hindu godmen make such comment, here are some hard facts that they must take note of:
- According to Unicef report India accounts for 22% of the total under-five children death worldwide
- Premature and neonatal birth complications apart from pneumonia and diarrhoea are the biggest killers
Malnutrition is another reason our children are dying
- India performed worse than Myanmar, Bangladesh and Iraq on the Global Hunger Index 2017
- According to World Health Organisation five women die every hour during child birth in India
