Ranchi, February 22: Around 600 Muslims are attending his camp, yoga guru Ramdev said today.
"I am happy to find burqa-clad women in my camp now, they are like my mother…I have named the ongoing programme as a yoga science camp. Medicines don’t have religious barriers and yoga is also the same," he said.
Ramdev also threw open this evening’s special session earlier meant only for school teachers.
The move came after the state CPI had filed a PIL in the Jharkhand High Court against the administration’s reported circular to schools inviting teachers today and children tomorrow for special yoga sessions. At five pm today anybody can join the special camp," Ramdev said.
He also said he was not interested in entering politics. "This is my bhisma pratigya (value-based pledge).""What is important is the feeling of nationalism," he said.
Appealing for funds for his Ayurvedic College Hospital and Research Centre in Jharkhand, for which he signed a MOU with the Jharkhand government, he said that the project would be completed within a year. Chief Minister Arjun Munda, Speaker Inder Singh Namdhari, ministers Kamlesh Singh of the Nationalist Congress party and a host of other political leaders were among the participants in the two-and-a-half hour programme.
