Covai Post Network

The BJP national secretary, H. Raja said that according to the recent religious census, the percentage of Hindu population in India is on the decline, and that if it continued, Hindus will become a minority religion in India by the year 2115.

Talking to the newspersons after participating in the merchants annual day celebrations, Raja said that the Hindu population which was 69 per cent some 100 years ago, had come down to 48 per cent now. He said that in order to stop the decline, amendments should be brought about in the general civil law, and the legislation banning religious conversions.

Regarding the survey conducted by People Studies, he said that it was funded by the DMK. The study had named MK Stalin as the lead contestant for the Chief Minister’s post. He added that parties like MDMK, CPI, and CPI-M will not be able to garner enough votes to pose any serious threat to the parties that would form the government in the state.
