GNNSJ Invite Yogi Swami Ramdev

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

It has come to our attention that Guru Nanak Nishkam Sevak Jatha has invited Swami Ramdev to gurdwara sahib. Swami Ramdev is currently on tour in UK who promotes yoga as a way of curing disease. As we know Sikhi gives no importance to yoga and yoga to a Sikh is nothing more then a physical means of exercise.

Swami Ramdev who has a yoga show on Aastha TV channel which is also associated with RSS, Hindu extremists, and further more has been exposed in the media for use of powder made of human skulls and animal parts in the ayurvedic medicines.

We are very disappointed at GNNSJ decision to allow and then publicise Swami Ramdev’s visit to the Gurdwara sahib.

Its very disappointing that Soho Road Gurdwara Sahib management is patronising this person and helping him make undesirable inroads into Sikh Sangat. I don't think Soho road Bhai Sahib doesn't know about the issues over this Yogi. They are committing a big blunder by introducing him to our sangat.It's a real shame.

We need a moderate dose of all sort of excercises to keep fit and need not go to the funny extremities as demonstrated by these yogis in their shows which they do by charging hefty amounts. We MUST FOLLOW Guru Nanak who condemned these tactics of yogis. Moderate exercises including moderate yoga can be taught by dozens of our own Gursikhs and that too for free. Hope some good sense will prevail in the minds of our managements and they will stay away from these type of people.

Need of the hour is to produce and patronise educated Gursikh preachers who can spread the message of Guru Granth Sahib and do real service to our communities.
