CLAIMING YOGA was most likely to offer a cure to AIDS in the coming years, Baba Ramdev has flayed the government’s practice of providing sex education in educational institutions asserting it should be replaced by yoga education.
‘Until the government stops polluting the minds of children through steps like sex education, the society’s morality cannot improve,’ Baba pointed out while speaking to media persons at State Health Minister Ajay Vishnoi’s official residence here on Monday afternoon.
He emphasised yoga practice and meditation could easily rid one’s mind of impure thoughts thus rendering the need of any kind of sex education useless.
Ramdev claimed he would prove to the world that yoga could actually cure AIDS in the coming years. ‘We will prove this through clinical tests in the next few years,’’ he maintained.
Ramdev informed that his Patanjali Yogapeeth would soon be starting a branch in Madhya Pradesh. ‘The Patanjali Yoga Kendra – to be built on an area of about 1000 hectare – would cost nearly Rs 1000 crore and is likely to start functioning in 2007,’’ Ramdev stated.
The institution would provide yoga education based on scientific principles to nearly 20000 persons in the coming years, he added. ‘The institute would teach yoga and ayurveda education to disciples through clinically controlled methods besides carrying out genetic research in several fields,’ Ramdev said.
He said the institution would also manufacture herbal medicines thus providing employment opportunities worth almost Rs 500 crore.
Besides, the institution would attract nearly 50 lakh tourists to the State wishing to learn yoga and ayurveda, Ramdev added.
