BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj has yet again stoked controversy by saying all Hindu women must produce four children to protect Hindu religion.”The concept of four wives and 40 children will not work in India and the time has come when a Hindu woman must produce at least four children in order to protect Hindu religion,” he said at a gathering for the Sant Samagam Mahotsava in Meerut on Tuesday.He went on to say that those who converted from Hindu religion must be ‘punished’ through ‘ghar-wapsi’ (reconversion to Hindu religion). He warned those engaged in cow slaughter and conversion saying that a death sentence awaits them once it is passed by the Parliament.”Wait for some time, a law will be passed in Parliament in which anyone indulging in cow slaughter and conversion will be punished with the death sentence,” he said.The Unnao MP did not stop there adding that Ram Mandir will be constructed at any cost. “No power on earth can stop the construction of Ram mandir in Ayodhya. It will be constructed, come what may,” he said.However, this is not the first time Sakshi Maharasj has made a controversial statement.Earlier, on December 11, BJP lawmaker had raked up a controversy saying father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse was a nationalist.However, Sakshi Maharaj later tendered his apology saying, “I respect Bapu and also the parliament. If I have said anything by mistake, I withdraw my statement. Godse was not a nationalist.”His statement had led to an uproar in both the houses of Parliament for almost a week.
