RSS joint general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale said on Saturday that Hindu families should adopt a three-child norm to prevent "demographic imbalance" in society.
Addressing the media during the ongoing RSS national executive here, Hosabale said a "demographic shift" has been taking place due to conversion, decline in birth rate and largescale infiltration from Bangladeshis.
Bigger Hindu families would prevent minorities from gaining the upper hand in terms of population in certain parts of the country, he said.
Stating that family planning should not be made applicable to any particular community he said "demographic balance" is necessary for balanced development. The growth rate of children in the age group of 0-6 years was 15 per cent among Hindus and 18 per cent among Muslim , claimed Hosabale, adding that "elite Hindus" should seriously review family planning. "We do not have enough youth to join the Armed Forces due to the present one-child norm,'' he said.
On Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's comment of "toilets first, temples later", Hosabale said both were equally important. There was no question of priority in this matter, he said.
The national executive adopted resolutions on Muslim extremism and border security.
