Unite to prevent another Ramlila incident: VHP

New Delhi: Flaying the police action against yoga guru Ramdev at the Ramlila Maidan here, VHP leader Ashok Singhal on Thursday asked the Hindu community to get united against such “oppression”.

“The action against Ramdev and his followers was barbaric and cannot be tolerated,” Singhal said addressing VHP workers at a camp here.

Referring to the attacks against other Hindu leaders over the last couple of years, he said “different factions of the Hindu community should unite together so that in future no one from the Hindu community is targeted.”

Delhi Police had justified in the Supreme Court its midnight crackdown on yoga guru Ramdev and his supporters protesting against corruption and black money, saying permission was given only to hold a yoga camp.
