I believe that this new requirement came after an (auto) update of the app. Just make sure you're using the official WhatsApp app to remove any suspicion that your phone has been hacked.
If you're still worried about your privacy - and that's perfectly understandable - I suggest you try downgrading WhatsApp to a previous version and the permission should no longer be required. Here, you can download previous versions.
I hope that helps.
