Haridwar (Uttarakhand) [India], November 15 (ANI): In the wake of Saudi Arabia listing Yoga under 'sports activities', Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev on Wednesday said he was sure that with the help of Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, the Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports (Independent Charge), Yoga would be certified as a sport in India, and would also be included in Olympics.
"I had requested the earlier sports minister to include Yoga as a sport, but I am sure that with the help of Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, we will certify Yoga as a sport in India and will also take it to Olympics," Baba Ramdev told ANI.
"Yoga is a secular practice with lots of scientific benefits," he said.
"I wish this decision was taken in India first. There were some Muslim brothers of ours, who because of their ignorance, had drifted away from Yoga. Now they will also return to the practice," said the Yoga Guru.
