In India, the so called seculars and intellectuals don’t leave any chance to demean anything which belongs to our rich heritage, and more so when the origin dates back to the Vedic period. It has become a fashion to demean and insult scientific practices like Yoga and Surya Namaskar. The great literary masterpieces like BhagavadGita, Ramayana, Mahabharata, the Vedas and the Upanishads are insulted by the leftist gang who have a significant hold on academia and media.
In past, unnecessary controversies have been created by the leftists when the government tried to promote Yoga or teaching of Sanskrit. The plan to promote the teachings of Bhagavad Gita was also opposed tooth and nail by the so called intellectual brigade. The reason given in all the three cases was same : imposition of Hindutva agenda. However, the reality is far from the misinformation being spread. In this candid interview, a journalist gets thrashed by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev Ji for calling Yoga as a fake, useless Hindutva imposition. Sadhguru replies, “If Yoga is Hindu, then gravity is Christian. (since phenomena of gravity was discovered by a Christian)”
“If Yoga would have been made compulsory in schools by any other government, people would have had no problem. Only because the current government is promoting Yoga, it is being linked to Hindutva,” was Sadhguru’s reply when asked if Yoga is a Hindutva agenda. Similarly there were many other questions on which the so called “secular” journalist was slapped hard by Sadhguru. Watch this interesting video.
