JAMMU: Minister for Health Choudhary Lal Singh today advised separatists to perform yoga to set their “state of mind.” “I don’t think there is anything Islamic or un-Islamic in performing Yog,” Mr Singh told reporters here this evening at a press conference.
The Minister’s reaction came in the backdrop of separatists’ statement that performing Yoga is “un-Islamic.”
Asserting that the separatists are not in “state of mind”, the Minister said, “they are not even aware of Islam.
They should perform yoga.” He called separatists “big fools.” The Minister said International Yoga Day will be celebrated statewide tomorrow.
The main function will be held here tomorrow at Gulshan Ground at 0600 hrs and the event is being organised by the Heath Department. Mr Singh also said such events will also be held at Srinagar in the coming days.
MoS PMO Dr Jitendra Singh will be attending the Yoga event here tomorrow.
