ASHOK SINGHAL – VHP INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT

“Terming the arrest of Baba Ramdev as humiliation of the entire Sant fraternity of the country, International President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad Ashok Singhal flayed the action in strongest terms. He said that it reminded one of the oppressive policies of the British Raj. Today is June 5, and the action reminded one of June 25, 1975 emergency”
