Yoga guru Swami Ramdev has expressed concern stating that the manner in which religious conversions are taking place in Uttarakhand is a matter of concern.
He also blamed Pakistan for the spread of lumpy skin disease in cattle in India.
Ramdev expressed these views on the sidelines of a religious event he attended at Bhupatwala here on Monday. Ramdev appreciated chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami’s decision regarding a survey of Madarsas in the State. He said that Islam did not have a major presence in Uttarakhand about 30 years ago but now activities like religious conversions have affected Devbhoomi Uttarakhand.
He said that the managers of Madarsas imparting good teaching and knowledge of Islam have nothing to worry about but if any such institution is teaching religious fundamentalism then strong action should be taken against such a Madarsa. Blaming Pakistan for the spread of lumpy skin disease among cattle in India, Ramdev said that an investigation should be conducted to ascertain whether the virus is manmade and if it has been spread as part of some conspiracy.
He said that application of a mixture of aloe vera, turmeric and Multani Mitti is very useful in lumpy virus disease. Regarding the spread of dengue amidst changing weather, he said that Patanjali has conducted research on this subject and found that Giloy, aloe vera, Veda grass, pomegranate and papaya are useful in treating this disease.
