Married to 39, patriarch of world’s ‘largest family’ dies in Mizoram
AIZAWL: Ziona, known as the patriarch of the “world’s largest family”, died at a hospital near Aizawl on Sunday. He was 76 and is survived by 39 wives and about 200 children and grandchildren who live in ‘Chhuan Thar Run’ or Abode of the New Generation at Chhuan Thar Tlangnuam village in central Mizoram’s Serchhip district.
世界上最大家庭的家长锡安纳，周日在一家医院去世，享年76岁，留下39位妻子和大约200个子女及孙辈，他们住在米佐拉姆邦中部serchchhip地区的Chhuan Thar Tlangnuam，他们的家命名为“新一代的家”
Sources said Ziona, who was the leader of the ‘Chana sect’, was brought to the hospital around 3 pm on Sunday but doctors on duty failed to revive him. He had severe case of hypertension and was a diabetic. Ziona, popularly known as ‘hotupa’ (leader) by members of the sect, was born on July 21, 1944. He married his first wife, Zathiangi, in 1959 when he was 15 and his second wife in 1968 when he was 24. His last marriage was in 2004 to a 25-year-old.
In spite of many of his daughters having left his place after their marriages, Ziona’s four-storey home with its dorm-like rooms has 162 people living in it. Mizoram CM Zoramthanga condoled Ziona’s passing away. “With heavy heart, #Mizoram bids farewell to Mr Zion-a (76), believed to head the world’s largest family. Mizoram and his village at Baktawng Tlangnuam has become a major tourist attraction in the state because of the family. Rest in Peace Sir!” Zoramthanga tweeted.
Ziona was anointed by his father Chana, leader of the re gious sect ‘Chana Pawl’, to lead his people even before he was born. The sect was founded by Khuangtuahthanga and used to be popularly known as ‘Khuangtuaha Pawl’ before it became ‘Chana Pawl’ after the death of the founder as his younger brother took over.
锡安纳的父亲是“查纳派”的领袖，在他出生之前就被父亲钦点为接班人。该教派是由Khuangtuahthanga创立的，过去被普遍称为“Khuangtuaha Pawl”，在其创始人去世后成为“Chana Pawl”，他的弟弟接管了该教派。
Khuangtuahthanga drew the ire of the Hmawngkawn village headman and the British go nment for his unique take on the Bible, resulting in his eviction from the village. Ziona’s son Nunparliana (60) has two wives and 13 children.
The CM is an irresponsible idiot for glorifying this psycho who married a 25 year old young woman as 39th wife at his age of 60
Hypertension ?..any surprise when you're on FarkFest and produced 100s like vermins, Ironically only in India such socially irresponsible and deviant behaviors are celebrated as great achievement
Why the media is glorifying this maniac who married girls the age of his grand daughter
IF HE HAD 39 WIVES OR 200 CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN, HE WAS MANAGING HIS FAMILY WITH HIS OWN RESOURCES, AND EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY HAD A JOB CUT OUT FOR THEM
OMG...he is a HINDU
What about one man one wife law. Is Mizoram not in india? Further instead of glorifying this any responsible newspaper would have raised valid questions and condemned the act.
India must bring population control program urgently
38 other men did not get a wife!
If law of one wife, one child had been enforced in India, this burden on resources of India including on tax payers would not have arisen.
As per reports, he had severe hypertension. One wife is enough to get hypertension and he had 39, so we can understand..

oh dear... dear... should have killed him during his second marriage only...
What is in Name
Is it a news great pride or example of great shame? How come he was not prosecuted as per law?
This is the power of patriarchy.
Surprised, he didn't get AIDS !!

The most lucky man on earth who enjoyed 39 wives simultaneously.. Oh!!! what an zing pleasure.. ha..ha...
Best thing is, he did not leave any family member on road... who sooner or later, unfortunately turn in to anti social elements .... at least he made sure all of his family is taken care of for basic neccesities without being a burnden on go nment and society ...
Shame. In a world of limited resources, we are glorifying one dger
No doubt, the CM is an irresponsible idiot for glorifying this Psycho.
This guy left a BIG legacy but is NO hero.
in THIS DAY AND AGE in a country ridden with people procreating like Rabbits... adding to the population explosion...AND ALL THE PROBLEMS THAT COME WITH IT...
