English language media is reporting that ramdev plans to raise an army. Really?

The facts: He is raising a self defense group. It cannot be called as an army. The media’s language gives an impression that he is raising an “army” with guns and rocket launchers and stuff. This is sure to scare the populace who have not heard and understood ramdev in his own words. The group is being trained to fight using sticks. You heard it – sticks.

Those who do not understand hindi rely on english news media for their information. These english media do not properly translate what he said. Whether they do it intentionally or not-I don’t know.

Congress is going out of its way to paint him in a communal color. To them, anyone who wears saffron is an enemy.

Media coverage of baba ramdev’s protest and UPA’s response indicate one thing: They associate color saffron with hindu extremism.

Hindu’s are peaceful people. We never attacked or invaded any country for centuries. In fact we are so good that we welcomed our enemies (mughals and british). That is an undisputable fact.

So why is the UPA screaming hindu terror and invoking the name of RSS?
The only reason I can think of is that they are trying to spoil the name of ramdev. They can’t stand the color saffron and anything associated with it. To them, saffron=extremism.

The media, which is supposed to be neutral, is taking sides. Articles in english language newspapers have a subtle anti-ramdev bias.

The media has to stop taking sides. They are trying to mislead people.

Baba Ramdev is a hindu spiritual leader who has popularized yoga and is enormously popular among the masses. He speaks out against government corruption, illegal immigration, exploitation of farmers. Yesterday, one of congress’s leaders accused him of illegal transactions and unaccounted money. I find these allegations utterly reprehensible. He runs charitable organizations. Congress’ policy is to attack anyone who wears saffron clothes.
