Baba Ramdev interview on TV
Excerpt published in Muslim Murasu, March 2012
Swamijis are grave threat to politics. Imaginations are set on fire likening them to extremists and terrorists. Qualities of saints are in the open for 120 crore Indians to scrutinize. Service and betrayals will be discussed by the public. Those who taint saints are easily able to take photographs in closeness with chief ministers. Medias release photographs. Politicians who are aloof from the public become desperate. People do not abandon Swamijis.
Black money is in the mix in medicine industry, narcotic sales, election extravaganzas and real estate transactions. Politicians can expose black money. Those who pulverized politics fear saints. They are categorizing saints as those who are cloistered in maths and those who venture out, collect people and expose abominable scandals in the country. There is no question of closeness or relations for saints. Citizens of India are struggling for their life. We have to guard both Yoga Dharma and social Dharma. “Do yoga. Do not interfere in politics”. This is the warning issued. A complete conspiracy is hatched. Let us face the facts.
All political parties accept in principle to bring back black money stashed abroad. Wealth details of bureaucrats, higher rung politicians and dominating businessmen should be revealed. People sitting in power are maintaining abject silence. There is not a single action. Wealth details of Qaddafi were not known until he was in power. His gold and silver reserves were exposed once he was expelled from power. Property of one Qaddafi was mind boggling. There are thousand Qaddafis hidden in India.
No one has to apologize to me. Saints have renounced everything. They don’t harbor fear or favor for anyone. They will forgive mistakes and excesses of everyone. No one has to fall in the feet of Swamiji. Police force was unleashed on those protesting against black money at Ramlila ground. They sinned. Truth cannot be kept in the darkness for long. Politicians, rulers are afraid of truth, reality. They are in mortal fear and distress. Ruling structure is throwing veil and hiding the poverty in the nation.
