Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh made a big statement a few days ago regarding the increasing population on the basis of religion. Digvijay had said that the birth rate of Muslims is decreasing and by the year 2028, the birth rate of Hindus and Muslims will be equal. He also said that there is no threat from Muslims regarding the population. Talking about a report, he had told that the birth rate of Muslims has declined since 1951.
After this statement, the Congress leader said that during the Congress rule, pattas were distributed to the tribals, but now those lands are occupied by someone else. Shame on those people. Responding to the question on his population statement, Digvijay Singh said that I am a Hindu, was and will always be a Hindu. A good Hindu is one who is a good Muslim and respects other religions as well. Regarding this, BJP leader Sadhvi Pragya said that this person is a heretic, who is giving evidence. One who has to give proof cannot be a Hindu.

Talking about this report, Digvijay
According to the report mentioned by Congress leader Digvijay Singh, it has been prepared by the Pew Research Center Washington DC. The center has done this study on the basis of census conducted every 10 years and National Family Health Survey (NFHS) data. It tells what kind of changes have taken place in the religious population of India.
It has been told in this report that the fertility rate of almost all religious groups, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, has decreased significantly. India has the largest population of Hindus and there is a general perception that the Muslim population is increasing rapidly, but this report, taking into account the data between 1992 and 2015, states that the birth rate (number of children) in all religious groups has decreased.
