In the December issue of the last year, he had said that all kinds of birth control steps are counter to God’s will. The letter had further said families which are adopting and going for bew programmes and technologies of the modern world are also suffering consequences.

“Permanent and temporary birth control measures are leading to anxiety and frustration in families,” the letter said further . It also added that even as there were no modern facilities our forefathers used to welcome newborns without looking at quantity or quality.

“Materialistic achievements and luxuries have started reducing the belief in God. Parents who get rid of babies fearing children will be a hurdle for their lifestyle are now suffering,” the letter added. The Bishop highlights that many quarters are trying to propagate that population and population density are dangerous. “Couples who should be participating happily in the divine process of creation are now trying to upturn this divine process,” the letter said.
