‘World’s Largest Family,’ Indian Man, Has Died, Leaving Behind Almost 89 Children

Chana claimed to have the “World’s Largest Family,” although this is impossible to verify, as others, such as Winston Blackmore of Canada, are said to have over 100 children.

On Sunday, an Indian man and the leader of a polygamous religious group died. Ziona Chana is said to have left 39 spouses, 94 children, and 33 grandkids behind. The actual number of his offspring is disputed, with some Indian media sites reporting that he has 89.

According to Aljazeera, Chana hails from the northeastern state of Mizoram and leads the Chana Pawl religious sect, which was formed by his father in 1942. Chana Pawl has around 2,000 people, the majority of them live in Baktawang village in Mizoram.

Mr. Zion-a (76), thought to be the world’s largest family, with 38 women and 89 offspring, was laid to rest with a sad heart in #Mizoram, he said.

“He was transferred to a private hospital in another district, and according to information received, he died away today (Sunday),” Kumar Abhishek, the Serchhip district deputy commissioner, told Anadolu Agency.

According to Aljazeera, Chana married his first wife when he was 17 years old in 1959 and claimed to have married ten wives in a single year. Chana married his final wife, a 25-year-old woman, in 2004.

The religious cult is said to dwell in a pink four-story home known as the “New Generation Home.” The huge family is accommodated in 100 rooms, and the spouses share a dormitory adjoining Chana’s own room.

Despite the fact that polygamy is banned under Indian law, a few tribes in India’s northeast accept it under their customary rules, which are tolerated by state officials.

Chana told Reuters, “I am eager to extend my family and prepared to go to any length to marry.” “I feel fortunate since I have so many people to care for and look after.”
