Ramdev's Revenge Rancor
File under: Satscams
Swami Ramdev has thrown himself into a blistering counter-attack against his Communist Party accuser, Brinda Karat. The smart folks are saying it's dumb:
Over 150 scholars, academicians, artists, health practitioners and social activists on Wednesday came out in support of Rajya Sabha member Brinda Karat in her ongoing war of words with yoga guru Ramdev over labour rights and presence of human remains in Ayurvedic preparations made by his Divya Yog Pharmacy (Haridwar)...Rabid Ramdev and his pack of media attack dogs don't really seem all that enlightened about this. What he does appear to be is desperate to throw the controversy before his revenue streams dry up.
In an appeal, the signatories said the modus operandi adopted by Baba Ramdev's supporters has been "a high-pitched and personalised attack targeting Ms. Karat; an attack that has been fostered and encouraged by a sensationalising media." They have urged all concerned to refrain from further sensationalisation of the matter and instead "assert the need to uphold the right to critical and rational debate."
Plus, we hear he's got a couple of tons of human skull powder and animal testicles that he's already paid for.
