The world's population is growing at an unprecedented rate, and this rapid growth is posing a significant threat to the environment, the economy, and the overall well-being of humanity. The global population is currently over 7.9 billion people, and it is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. This increasing threat of population explosion demands our attention and immediate action.
To put a halt to this uncontrollable rate, a new welfare initiative has been started by Revered Saint Dr. MSG under the name, ‘BIRTH’. Under this initiative, the volunteers take responsibility for controlling the high population rate.
The world is experiencing a dramatic increase in the population, which is causing problems not only for poor and underdeveloped countries but also for industrialized and developed nations. Overpopulation causes a bundle of problems that have created a difficult situation in front of the entire world.
BIRTH Campaign- A Necessity in this Alarming Situation of Population Explosion
Population explosion occurs when the birth rate exceeds the death rate, and the result is a rapid increase in the number of people in a given area. This increase in population puts tremendous pressure on the environment, resources, and infrastructure, leading to a wide range of issues.
One of the most significant concerns associated with population explosion is the strain it places on the planet's natural resources. As the population grows, the demand for food, water, and energy increases, leading to overconsumption, deforestation, and pollution. This demand for resources has already started to affect the environment, leading to climate change, water scarcity, and land degradation, all of which have a severe impact on the well-being of humans and other living beings.
Another concern associated with population explosion is the impact on the economy. The growth in population leads to an increase in demand for goods and services, which, in turn, leads to an increase in production and consumption. However, this demand is not sustainable, and it puts a significant strain on the economy, leading to inflation, unemployment, and a widening wealth gap.
To address all such issues, the BIRTH initiative is making a positive impact on society. By making people aware of the hazardous impact of the rising population, this initiative is making a wave to keep the situation under control, thereby leading to an impact positively on the whole environment and our planet.

To address the increasing threat of population explosion, it is essential to adopt sustainable practices and policies that ensure the well-being of both people and the planet. For this, with the inspiration of Revered Guruji, the disciples pledge at the time of their marriages for ‘Ek hi Sahi, Do Ke Baad Nahi (One child is enough, a strict no after two).’
More children simply mean you have to avail & arrange for their living, make arrangement for their education and also provide all necessary amenities for their life. The other aspect on the societal level is even more dangerous. More population means lesser employment opportunities and more adverse impacts on the overall environment.
Moreover, there is generally a higher level of crimes being executed, such as murder, drug abuse, and theft that is often caused by the high rates of unemployment. It further puts pressure on infrastructure and resources. More people lead to increased demand for housing, transportation, and utilities, which leads to overburdened infrastructure, traffic congestion, and pollution.
Being concerned about the problems that arise due to the population explosion Revered Guru Ji has invocated their followers to strictly follow this campaign so that the entire universe can be saved from the adverse effects of overpopulation. Guru Ji has raised this issue for making people conscious of the problems of having more children which is a troublesome situation for the whole family.
According to Baba Ram Rahim Ji, a family can up bring one child or a maximum of two children more efficiently rather than bringing up more kids. Also, better education, food, and other facilities can be provided to them. This further includes increasing access to education and healthcare, improving family planning services, promoting sustainable agriculture, and investing in renewable energy and infrastructure.
The increasing threat of population explosion demands our immediate attention and action. We must take measures to address the root causes of this issue and work towards creating a sustainable future for all. Failure to do so will result in a world that is overburdened, and unsustainable. With the inspiration of Guruji, all followers and even every newlywed couple are taking the pledge to accept the BIRTH initiative, thereby making their remarkable contribution to saving the whole universe from the adverse effects of population explosion.
