New Delhi- As the Bharatiya Janta Party commemorates a decade under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the digital sphere ignites with an unexpected fervor, catalyzed by a resurfaced tweet advocating for the establishment of an exclusive sperm bank dedicated to the Prime Minister.

The provocative proposal, originally shared by a Twitter user with the handle @meenaxi2k, has sparked polarized reactions across social media platforms and beyond.

As the tweet gained traction and faced widespread criticism, the account owner closed the account, and it is no longer accessible on Twitter.

Amidst the ongoing elections, this contentious tweet captured widespread attention, particularly as it coincides with both Mother's Day and Prime Minister Modi's decade-long tenure. This tweet has sparked considerable debate and controversy within the digital sphere.

In her eight-month-old post, @meenaxi2k voices a desire for the Indian government to contemplate the establishment of a specialized sperm bank solely for the progeny of Prime Minister Modi.

Expressing concern over the absence of biological successors for the incumbent Prime Minister, the tweet suggests that the creation of such a repository would afford every woman the opportunity to bear offspring with Modi's genetic lineage.

" As a Proud Indian woman I'm bothered by the fact that Modiji, the father of modern India won't have any biological successors. Shouldn't centre consider starting a exclusive sperm bank to ensure that every woman gets a chance to bear his offsprings?" , the tweet reads.

Further she tweeted, " Imagine if all Indian men allowed their wives to bear such a child of Modiji, we'd have the most powerful gene pool in the world! Soon, every citizen would have a bit of that superior power, his grace and intelligence in them. just my thought and I think centre considers this."

While the proposal initially appeared as a whimsical musing, it swiftly ignited a firestorm of debate and condemnation. Many individuals have decried the tweet as emblematic of "shameless hero worship" and an affront to the dignity of women.

Critics argue that reducing women to mere vessels for the propagation of political legacies undermines their autonomy and agency, perpetuating archaic notions of patriarchy and subservience.

Comments on Modi Sperm Bank Proposal: From Doubt to Sarcasm

As the proposal for a Modi sperm bank continues to polarize opinions across social media platforms, a myriad of reactions has flooded the digital sphere, ranging from disbelief to biting sarcasm.

One incredulous commenter simply questioned, "Is this for real?" expressing disbelief at the audacity of the suggestion. This sentiment resonated with many who found themselves taken aback by the outlandish nature of the proposition.

Nilesh Salke, Research Assistant Professor at University of Illinois Chicago wrote, " Every time I encounter such posts from bhakts, I think this is the worst it can get, but somehow they always find a way to dig even deeper."

Economist and Former faculty from IIT Jodhpur, Rijo M John reacted in a humerous note , " taking the "Modi ka Parivar" slogan a bit too seriously!"

Others took a more acerbic tone, directing their criticism towards the ruling party itself. One commentator suggested, "BJP should begin from their MP and MLA's wives," implying that if such a venture were to materialize, it should commence within the ranks of the political elite before extending to the broader populace.

Amidst the cacophony of disapproval, one commenter offered a succinct diagnosis: "No cure for this madness."

Following the surge in attention and widespread criticism, The Mooknayak staff managed to verify the post from its original source. However, shortly thereafter, the account was deleted, rendering the tweet inaccessible.

In a conversation with The Mooknayak, Dalit rights activist and author Shalin Maria Lawrence raises doubts about Modi's intelligence, stating, "Modi hasn't demonstrated a strong intellect. He avoids engaging in intellectual discourse or arguments, unlike many other political leaders I've observed. Instead, he relies on teleprompters, pre-planned scripts, and tactics that appeal to emotions, such as urging people to clap or light lamps. I fail to see how Indians perceive him as knowledgeable." She says the person who posted such a tweet could be anyone - a male or female.

Shalin further asserts, " The RSS has long been associated with caste supremacy and the notion of a superior race, drawing parallels to Hitler's ideologies. They are perceived to favor an alliance between upper-class Brahmins and German whites, fostering a dangerous concept of racial superiority."

Renowned women's rights activist and Supreme Court lawyer Bindu Ammini strongly condemns the incident. Speaking to The Mooknayak, she emphasizes the need to reject the Sangh Parivar's agendas that demean womanhood and motherhood.

Ammini urges immediate action to arrest the individual responsible for such proposal encouraging women to bear "Modi babies," describing it as a crime against womanhood. She advocates for the rejection of interventions that degrade and insult women.

Meanwhile some believe that such posts should not be taken seriously as they are just an exaggerated expression of respect for the Prime Minister. "I am a BJP supporter and greatly appreciate Modi ji's leadership and political skills. I am also impressed by the progress India has seen in the past decade. However, I find the idea of a sperm bank weird," says Sneha Chaudhary, a visiting faculty member at Udaipur's Sukhadia University.

She believes that such posts on social media should not be taken seriously, as they may simply be an exaggerated expression of admiration for the leader, rather than a serious proposal.

The Mooknayak attempted to contact several BJP leaders for their input on the matter. However, they declined to provide any comment or opinion on the issue.
