SWAMI RAMDEV MAKES OUTRAGEOUS STATEMENTS IN THE NAME OF MORALITY
Swami Ramdev has emerged as a tall figure in the Indian societal and political scenario owing to his popularity and controversial stance on various issues. The Indian Godman has landed himself yet again on questionable grounds due to some recent statements in which he suggested that there should be blanket ban on cow slaughter and liquor. Earlier he had suggested the snatching away of voting rights and other governmental privileges from the third child in a family so as to curb the problem of overpopulation in the country
Though he tried validating his stance by ratifying it under the ambit of right to speech and the interest of the nation, but aren’t the days of emergency already over? No matter the intentions, the execution has to be conducive and least intrusive to a population of over 1 billion. Though the intention behind these comments is positive but the moral preachment is contrary to the freedom of choice, which is a fundamental right of the citizens of our country.
Swami Ramdev was heard giving China’s example but one cardinal pint of difference between the two countries is that, China is not a democracy like us. The very spirit of democracy is to let the citizens of nation decide the course of their future. Swami Ramdev’s claims are hurtful to this very sentiment of democracy.
Swami Ramdev has openly sided with BJP and its ideology in the past.
