        Muslim must increase Muslim ppulation so that Hindus cannot show Hindu power on Muslim. Muslim start marrying Hindu girls so that Hindu ppulation will decline automatically.

              Reply to Mr biswas. This is not hatred ness or bad thinking. This is fact. More ppulation means more power. Pakstn, Bangladesh throwing Hindu away as they know that if Hindu ppulation increase than Hindus could create problems in future. So Muslims in India must not allow same thing to happen with them. So Muslims must increase Muslim ppulation and Muslims power.
