INDIA - Hindu paramilitary group calls for policy change to contain "harmful" minorities [AN]

The Rashtriya Sangh Swyamsevak adopts a motion calling on the Indian government to review national policies on population. In its view, the growing numbers of Muslims and Christians is creating a “demographic imbalance” that is threatening the “country’s integrity, unity and identity”. Census data show that Hindus are 79.8 per cent, Muslims 14.23 per cent, and Christians 2.3 per cent of the population. For Christian activist, extremists “are twisting the data to stir fears among Hindus about Muslims”.
