Pakistan’s Health Minister, Abdul Qadir Patel, has suggested that those who want to have more children should go to countries where Muslims are a minority, to cope with the growing population.

Abdul Qadir Patel was speaking about Pakistan’s population during a program on World Population Day.

Recently, the United Nations, in its ‘World Population Prospects 2022’ report published on population, said that in the month of November this year, the world population will be eight billion.

The same report also said that India will top the list of most populous countries next year, with China coming second. At the same time, Pakistan’s population will exceed 360 million by 2050.
