Vishwa Hindu Parishad convenor Ashok Singhal on Saturday raised the bogey of Hindus becoming minority and India and said it has become "imperative for each Hindu couple to have five children".


Singhal said unless conversions were stopped immediately, the day "would not be far off when Hindus would be reduced to a minority in this country".

The VHP convenor heaped praise on BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi and attacked Congress president Sonia Gandhi over a number of things.

Singhal said the VHP has nothing to do with the BJP but maintained that it would certainly support Modi in the next Lok Sabha elections.

He said the government, which would be formed under the prime ministership of Modi, would not come under pressure from any quarter including the US.

The VHP convenor had last night met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat for over an hour here. Bhagwat is in a four-day visit to the city.
