Baba Ramdev invites wrath of Indore Gandhians for remarks on Mahatma
Jabalpur/Indore, Self-styled yoga guru Baba Ramdev has courted the
wrath of followers of the father of the nation, Mahamta Gandhi, for his
comment that Gandhi's non-violence alone did not achieve freedom for
Ramdev, hugely popular for propagating the healing of diseases through
yoga, said the country should not ignore the contributions of
revolutionaries in its fight against British colonial rule.
He said this in Jabalpur, where he is imparting yoga training to army
"See! I am a follower of penance, sacrifice, non-violence and truth.
But I am also a follower of revolutionaries. I live a simple life. I
don't do what everyone else does. But I believe that the freedom of our
country is because of the sacrifice of martyrs," Baba Ramdev said.
"If somebody says that the country achieved independence without arms,
without bloodshed, I believe that is an insult to the country's
martyrs," he added.
Gandhi's followers, mainly activists of the Congress Party, were quick
They charged Ramdev with insulting the Father of the Nation. Youth
workers of the Congress burnt posters of Ramdev and shouted slogans
Angry protestors urged Baba Ramdev to concentrate on Yoga only.
"We believe what he (Ramdev) said is not correct. He should just
concentrate on yoga only," said Devendre Singh Yadav, a leader of the
Youth Congress in Indore.
