New Delhi, Feb 24: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Vikram Saini on Friday stirred a new controversy by saying that Hindus should not stop producing children until a law for population control comes into existence. Addressing a population control campaign program in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar, the Khatauli MLA reportedly said, “Until a law on population control comes into existence, I have told my wife to keep producing children, even though she told me that two were enough.”Also Read - Viral Video: Karnataka BJP MLA's Son Cuts Birthday Cakes With iPhone, Slammed For 'Ugly Display of Wealth' | Watch
He further said that Hindus have accepted the two-child policy, but others have not. “The law should be equal for everyone. When we had two children, my wife said we did not need a third one, but I said we should have four to five,” Saini told the gathering.

“During partition, due to them (Muslims), the Hindus are facing problem in the country. If they (Muslims) had not stopped in India, property of crores would be of the Hindus,” Saini had stated.
Last year, he had attacked Christians saying New Year celebrations were a Christian festival and must be shunned by Hindus.
