“The country needs a holistic and thoughtful population policy to maintain Hindu population. Continuous conversion and infiltration from international borders leads to lessening Hindu population in the country. Following one-sidedly focus on population control, average of per family population has been reduced from 3:4 to 1:9 in the country in last 40-50 years.
