Congress and Sonia Gandhi behind ‘ink attack’ on Ramdev – Dr Swamy

published on January 16, 2012


The whole nation must condemn the so-called ink attack by a disgruntled person on Baba Ramdev who is campaigning nation wide against corruption.

Baba Ramdev is a sanyasi who has attained spiritual wisdom and has inspired the nation and people abroad with his yoga teachings and medicine cures.  In Hindu tradition, attacking a pious sadhu and is in the service of God and people, is a national humiliation, of Bharat Mata, and not Baba Ramdev.

Hence I demand that the persons behind this attack must be identified and prosecuted.  The ink thrown at Baba Ramdev cannot be tolerated especially prima facie when it seems inspired by a section of the Congress Party.


ANI Report

Ranchi, Jan 16 (ANI): Blaming Congress president Sonia Gandhi for the brazen ‘ink attack’ on yoga guru Baba Ramdev, Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy has said Gandhi had strong ‘anti-saffron’ bias.

On Saturday, a man identified as Kamran Siddiqui suddenly walked up to Ramdev after a news conference in New Delhi and threw black ink at the Yoga Guru, before being apprehended and roughed by people present at the venue.

“Baba Ramdev is carrying out mass awareness against corruption in the country. Sonia Gandhi dislikes him because he wears saffron-coloured clothes. She has always hated people who don saffron and wants to humiliate them. Baba Ramdev’s attacker could have done anything. Fortunately, there were people and Ramdev’s supporters who thrashed the assaulter,” Swamy told media here.

Swamy said that Siddiqui’ had ‘close’ links with the Congress.

“The attacker (Kamran) Siddiqui was a Congress backed candidate in the municipal corporation elections. The Delhi government had donated Rs 2.50 million to his NGO recently. Moreover, he was just released from jail,” said Swamy.

Continuing his scathing attack, Swamy also trained guns at Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh-a fierce critic of Ramdev-saying he needed to undergo treatment at a ‘mental hospital.’

“As Anna Hazare has said, the time has come for Digvijay Singh to go and get admitted in a mental hospital. I have heard that there is a very good hospital in Ranchi too. He should be admitted there. It is always pleasant there. He needs to be forcibly admitted to a mental hospital, otherwise I will have to get such an order from the court,” said Swamy.wamy further said that Digvijay Singh was suffering from ‘brain cancer.’

“He used to be a good man earlier, but lately, he has turned corrupt. I think he has brain cancer,” said Swamy
