Muslims will continue to produce children despite law: AIUDF chief on Assam govt’s new job criteria


While the Assam government decided against providing government jobs to people having more than two children, All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Badruddin Ajmal on Saturday said that Muslims will not listen to anyone and will continue to produce children.

“Muslims will continue to produce children, they will not listen to anyone. Now, the government has brought this law to stop Muslims from having jobs. According to the Sachar committee, below 2 per cent Muslims get government jobs. Literate people are now increasing among the Muslim community and they are working across the world,”

Badruddin Ajmal said, “Our religion and I personally believe that those who want to come to the world will come and no one can stop it.”

Hitting out at the BJP-led Assam government, Badruddin Ajmal said, “Whatever laws you make, they will have no impact on the Muslims. Tampering with nature is not good. Muslims will do whatever they want to bear children. Don’t shout later that we have more children. Don’t fight with nature.”

Badruddin Ajmal further said, “On one side, the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat asks to produce 10-10 children and on the other side, the government says that no government jobs will be given to the people having more than two children. First, they should decide what they want. They don’t follow what RSS said.”

On October 21, The Assam cabinet ruled that no government jobs will be given to the people having more than two children after January 1, 2021.

The 126-member Assam assembly had passed the “Population and Women Empowerment Policy of Assam” in September 2017.
