Demographic characteristics of
varying societies vary from area to
area depending on the ecological patterns of different
societies. The commencement, receipt, and
popularization of the movement of birth control were not
identical all across the world. The idea of birth control
reflects one of the most interesting episodes in the history
of modern ideas. It is widely known as all the methods
used to regulate or prevent the birth of children. It is
deliberate prevention or delaying of births by various
artificial means. Family Planning or Planned
Parenthood is the term generally used to refer more
broadly to policies, programs, and services designed to
assist people in practicing birth control. The present
study claims that all apparently religious doctrines
against family planning are actually the expression of
their local worldview. Accordingly, the people consider
their opposition to the idea of family planning justified in
Islam, though in reality, they derive their feelings from
their socio-economic considerations.
