On Sunday, April 3, yoga guru Baba Ramdev, was addressing a sadhbhavana, peace and understanding rally organised by none less than the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in Haryana. The aim of the event was to bring peace through conducting this rally in context of what happened after the Jat reservation riots.
Baba Ramdev made a hate comment referring to Asaduddin Owaisi “Some person wears a cap and stands up and says that he will not say ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’ even if you decapitate him. Baba Ramdev further added “This country has a law, otherwise let alone one, we can behead lakhs. But we respect this country’s law. If somebody stands up and speaks like this, which gives strength to hooligans. We respect this country’s law and Constitution. Otherwise if anybody disrespects Bharat Mata, we have the capability of beheading not one but thousands and lakhs.”
RSS and BJP are making one of their agendas to impose many minority groups where they must chant ‘Bharat mat ki Jai’ which is also catering to their major vote banks. In 2013, Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi was arrested for hate speech where he said “we (Muslims) are 25 crores, you are 100 crores (Hindus). You are so much more numerous. But just remove the police for 15 minutes and we will show who the brave ones are and who is stronger”?
The hate speech of Baba Ramdev and Akbaruddin Owaisi conveys the same meaning yet no action has been taken.
