Ramdeo dances to RSS tune

Faizabad: The Yoga guru, Baba Ramdeo, instead of confining his activities to popularising the yoga among the masses, has been in fact, propagating the RSS ideology. On Government College ground a Yoga Camp was organised on 19 November. In addition to being a yoga teacher, he is also a seasoned politician. He had an audience of several thousand persons comprising all age groups. The two hour camp was a good demonstration of yoga skills.

After the end of Yoga camp he began lecturing on several issues ranging from drug addiction, bribery, immorality etc. Addressing a press conference he reminded that names of several cities have been changed. He wondered why Faizabad retained its old name and asked people to begin calling it Ayodhya. when asked to speak about the court verdict, he said that Ayodhya is Ram’s janmabhoomi and only a temple should exist there. Just one day earlier he had praised the efforts of Mahant Gyandas of Hanumangarhi temple and Hashim Ansari. Impressed by his gesture, the two attended his camp the very next day. He expressed concern on learing that polishing of stones has come to an end and asked the artisans to continue. He offered his support for the cause. After meting VHP Chairman Ashok singhal he discussed the obstacles in temple construction. Later on he visited other VHP activists. (Syed Manzar Mehdi)
