A Rohtak court on Wednesday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against yoga guru Ramdev for his controversial “beheading” remark made in the city last year. The Court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate of Rohtak (ACJM) Harish Goyal had earlier issued a bailable warrant against Ramdev and summons to him for his remarks “for intentional insult with intent to provoke the breach of peace”.

However, after Ramdev failed to appear on both occasions, the court issued the arrest warrant on Wednesday.

Former Haryana home minister and senior Congress leader Subhash Batra, who is complainant in the matter and was present in the court on Wednesday, said the court had asked Rohtak SP to comply with the orders of non-bailable warrant against Ramdev.

Ramdev was summoned for his remark that he could “behead lakhs of people refusing to chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ if he wasn’t bound by the law”. The comments were allegedly made when he was addressing a large gathering in Rohtak on April 3, 2016.

      Okay but will he be arrested? I guess not. In India, influential people are easily able to bypass non-bailable arrest warrants. The media always highlights that a warrant is issued against so and so, but it never tells what happened of that warrant.

          Some peo-ple ask : What is 'Hindutva' ? How does it differ from the toler-ant, widely-practi-sed 'Hinduism' ? This was well answe-red by 'yoga guru' Ramdev when he talked about "beheadi-ing lakhs of peo-ple". It is only in a Hindutva hothead that such ideas can emerge. And 'yogi' Ramdev is no except-ion : Sometime ago RSS pracharak Kundan Chandrawat offer-ed Rs 1 crore for the head of Kerala CM Vijayan. . . RSS mouthpiece 'PANCHJANYA' publish-ed an arti-cle recently in wh-ich the author claimed : 'In the Vedas it is said,"Kill those who kill the cow". .' Lynch-ings in Alwar, Dadri other vigilante attacks in Una, Latehar, Sonepat etc , too,are the stuff recent history. Even more terrify-ing is Gen Rawat's loud think-ing : The Army sho-uld provoke fear in the minds of common peo-ple, he has said. So, our pracharak PM is succ-ess-fully infect-ing the Indian Army, too, with his viol-ent Hindutva ideo-logy !

              Most of the BJP/RSS leaders, MPs, Ministers, adherents are nasty arrogant commentators. They don't realize the fact that Modiji is also a human being and the power to rule India is given by the people for a specific period and not for ever. Also, they should understand that Modiji is not a celestial, immortal being. In the course of time, he too should hand over the power to someone else.

                Ramdev should be castrated. But then what's the point. A baba who likes to dress in women's clothes probably can't get it up anyway. Still, it will nice to see a d1ckless fraud baba. .

                  Great news for Dawood Ibrahim. He can chant BHARAT MATA KI JAI and save his head. He will be a patriot with these chants.
