Yoga guru Ramdev today appeared to backtrack from his controversial remark that if not for the law, he would have “beheaded” people for refusing to chant ’Bharat Mata ki Jai’, saying he was merely responding to AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s statement that he won’t raise the slogan even if a knife is put to his throat.

Addressing a press conference here, Ramdev said insulting religions like Islam or Christianity would be as “idiotic” as Owaisi’s remark.

Ramdev said:

“I believe in non-violence, coexistence and oneness. It would be wrong to say that behead me but I won’t respect the Quran or the Bible. I take pride in my religion but that does not give me the licence to insult other faiths. That would be as idiotic as Owaisi.

“He says at the drop of a hat that behead me but I won’t say ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ So I responded in rustic language that I would have done so but I believe in the Constitution.No one needs to be scared of me…’Woh toh baat ki baat thi’

“If someone wants to say ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ then let him, what’s the point in protesting against it.”

The yoga guru said the JNU and NIT-Srinagar incidents were offshoots” of a crisis of ideology, principles and policy in the country.

Asked about Amitabh Bachchan’s name surfacing among the Indians listed in Panama Papers, Ramdev said the Bollywood star appeared to be a “good person” but he needed to come upfront and say that he was ready for a probe into the matter.

Ramdev also said he did not have any role in the political turmoil in Uttarakhand.

On the black money issue, on which he had been vocal, Ramdev said he has left the issue to “Modiji” to handle. “I have my full focus on Yoga.”

Ramdev also praised the anti-pollution measure ‘Odd–Even’ enforced by the AAP government and the liquor ban imposed by the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar, saying other political parties should follow suit.
