Ramdev's Revenge Riot

File under: Satscams

Supporters of Hindu health guru Swami Ramdev have struck back. Today they attempted to storm the headquarters of India's Communist Party in New Delhi in protest of party member Brinda Karat's allegations against the Swami and his health product business. Karat sent some of the Swami's impotence medicine for analysis at a Ministry of Health laboratory, and according to the results, the Swami was allegedly adulterating his medicine with human bone and animal testicles.

The brouhaha is becoming a major political battle in India with the other parties running to distance themselves from the Communists in the wake of the scandal. Various politicians have come out in support of the Swami, one going as far to suggest that: "So long as it improves one's health, why should it matter whether it contains human or devil's bones?"

Ramdev's supporters are painting Karat's allegations as "an attempt to destroy the Indian faith in Ayurveda." They claim that Karat adulterated the samples herself as part of a conspiracy against the Swami and his organization.

Political vendetta or protection of the Indian public? We may never know the truth. But let's hope that at least one of the Swami's customers got a rip for his rupees and had a ball with the tantric concoction, whatever ingredients it contained.

My blog Gudia, a Muslim girl and Ramdev ji, a Hindu male !! is on how the society defines the "weak" and who becomes the underdog !

Do you know Gudia ? Gudia is an Indian Muslim girl who died this new years eve. As we sat watching Pranoy Roy hand over the "Best Indian" award to Sonia, the fireworks from Japan to Park avenue and Bihar on advertisements instead of crime alert, Gudia died. Gudia died of multiple organ failure at an Army hospital. [...................] But for lip service none of the pro wife feminists and bleeding heart leftists did anything for Gudia. Neither Brinda Karat, nor Teesta Setalvad, nor Arundhathi Roy or her comrades who bleed for Iraqi children or Kosovo's babies and collateral damage all over the globe, worried about this poor Indian Muslim - Gudia.[...................]

Now to Ramdev. If you notice Ramdev ji, A Hindu Swami, has been hit and plastered all over. Ramdev seems to be from the other unfortunate half i.e. Hindu Male of India Just as muslim women are being tossed about by the powerful, so are Indian Hindu men tossed about.

Be it Kanchi Shakaracharya or Ramdev, or Narayan Murthy or Advani, they are symbols of hope and achievement in their respective spheres. They are symbols of faith and were Ikons of Hinduism. These very men are under attack today.

why Ramdev ?
