Kerala: Muslim birth rate surpasses Hindus, may become majority community by 2042

According to the recently released annual birth/death report of Kerala, the Muslims have surpassed the Hindus in terms of birth rate. The Muslim rate of birth is 43.74% whereas the Hindus are at second position with 41.69%. Christians continue to be on the third position with 14.30%.

While, as far as the death rate is concerned, Hindus are far ahead of the two with a whopping 60.54%, compared to just 19.86% of the Christians and 19%15% of the Muslims.

Speaking to SatyaVijayi, Pratheesh Viswanath, the founder of Hindu Seva Kendra said, “as per these statistics, by 2033, the under eighteen population in Kerala will be Muslim majority and by 2042, 51% of Kerala population will be Muslim.”

“A very dangerous trend is taking up and unless the central government brings in Population Control law, there will be very big demographic change and social consequences in Kerala,” he added.

Further elaborating on the reasons behind the rapid demographical change being observed in coastal state, he said, “One reason is increasing production of children amongst the Muslims which has led to higher birth rates the other is age of marriage. While in Hindus a boy typically marries at the age of 30-35 and girls at 25-30, in Muslims it is 20-25 for the boys and 18-20 for the girls. So as you can see there is a major gap.”

“Unless a new law is brought by the Central government or Hindu society creates a new social structure according to the situation, there will be a very big disaster. Already Hindus own only 22% lands, 17% businesses and 14% bank transactions are their, so they are already on the verge of ethnic cleansing and in two or three generations they would be wiped out completely. Today it is happening in Kerala, tomorrow it will happen in all over India,” he added.

According to 2011 Census of India figures, 54.73% of Kerala’s population are Hindus, 26.56% are Muslims, 18.38% are Christians, and the remaining 0.33% follow other religions or have no religion.
