Uddhav Thackeray welcomes PM Modi's push for population control

Daijiworld Media Network - Mumbai (SR)

Mumbai, Aug 17: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Independence Day pitch for smaller families to combat population explosion, was welcomed by its ally Shiv Sena.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said, "Late party supremo Bal Thackeray had always advocated the cause and was in support of implementing population control measures. We are happy that Modi government is taking forward the policies of the Shiv Sena. Late Bal Thackeray always advocated the need for population control. The NDA government under Modi is espousing the policies of the Shiv Sena. This is in national interest." Raut also said that triple talaq legislation is a step towards enacting the Uniform Civil Code.

As per TOI report, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray who was present during the Independence Day function, referring to the abrogation of Article 370 said, "There was no need to bring religion into the issues of national interest. How can a state have separate powers than the Centre? The Modi government has removed it."

    If the income above 2.5 lacs, government is charging tax. They are not controlling anybody's income. Same way charge tax on the person who marry, divorce,or have more children's as per nation's law.

    Now Modi and Sena is eying on population control. Just the other day SENAs mouthpiece paper commented " hum do, hammare pacchis" a clear reference to Muslim population. There is evidence that muslim families have slightly higher ratio in terms of children in the family compared to others. Is Modi/Sena worried about Muslim population growth?

    Is Modi's development agenda includes population curbs? I surely think so, reading his mouth on Aug 15, 2019. Is the worry about population growth in general or some other agenda of Hindutva Nationalistic Government of Modi?

    Interesting to watch the future actions.

    43rd Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court Decision

    Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

    "Every country's greatest resource is new life in the womb. When this life is snuffed out due to the legalization of abortion, the nation is weakened forever - not only in this present age, but in generations yet to come."

    "You may not readily realize the talents and abilities that are destroyed when you destroy life in the womb. Many great leaders, many scientists, many vocations have never realized their potential, as abortion took away their chance."

    "Yes, the world has been changed forever due to the crime of abortion. God's Will - life in the womb - is continually transgressed. No human being in his arrogance has the right to challenge God's plans in such a way. To continue on this path provokes God's Justice with certainty."

    "Dear children, pray that life is recognized at conception and given its due respect."

    Majority of India is young and productive but this advantage will only last till 2040. PM Modi is clueless on how to utilize this advantage, he is coming up with the discarded and intrusive ideas of governance that shirk his own responsibility.
    Economic Survey differs from PM Modi's take on population growth. The Economic Survey 2018-19 observed the population growth in India has been slowing for the last few decades from an annual growth rate of 2.5% during 1971-81 to an estimated 1.3% as of 2011-16.
    The report estimates that the working-age population will grow by roughly 9.7 million per year during 2021-31 and drop by more than half to 4.2 million per year in 2031-41.

    It says that the share of India's young - 0-19 years - the population has already started to decline and is projected to drop from as high as 41% in 2011 to 25% by 2041. On the other hand, the share of elderly - 60 years and above - population will continue to rise steadily, nearly doubling from 8.6% in 2011 to 16% by 2041.

    The nation must think about the growing age population. Now with slashing of budget for old age schemes, it won't be easy for India to keep its population happy and healthy.

    As Uddhav Thackeray or PM Modi, they speak only on imagination without any support of the data. Most of the speeches are politically motivated.

    Moreover Planning a small family with patriotism is absolutely wrong. Perhaps our Modiji must have forgotten that his father Damodardas Mulchand Modi has children. Does the nation ever question his patriotism?

    China is still the largest population of the world. But still grew to superpower in short-span with inclusive policy and schemes. Unlike India's PM asking to take 'Pakoda' jobs for the educated youth of the nation, China created more business and jobs.

    Over population, a serious problem India is facing. All need to be given proper education to get rid of population problem. Also growing population requires proper employment to satisfy their needs. All round development is the need of the hour. The needy should get the medical facilities. Proper roads require for travel and transportation. It is an uphill task before each and every Indian. Each Indian must strive to the best of one's ability to solve the problems arising from population explosion along with controlling the population. Thank you and God bless each and every one of us.

    Jesus on why natural disasters.

    Message to John Leary.

    Tuesday, July 30, 2019: (St. Peter Chrysologous)

    Jesus said: “My people, you are entering your hurricane season, and you see some dark clouds and heavy waves coming ashore. Be prepared for more serious events that will be testing your people. You could see serious storms, flooding, earthquakes, and fires. I told you before that you will have one event after another. You will be seeing more destruction from your natural disasters as a punishment for your abortions and sexual sins. Some of your people are being misled by the devil in changing their gender, or committing homosexual acts. Many of the reasons I destroyed Sodom are happening among your people. I will separate My faithful in My refuges before I will punish the evil ones. Pray for your families that they will follow Me after the six weeks after the Warning.”
