Mumbai, August 13: Amidst the standoff between India and China in the Doklam area of Sikkim, Ramdev said today that China doesn’t believe in peace. Had they done that, Dalai Lama wouldn’t have been here (India). Ramdev said this at the World Peace and Harmony Conclave in Mumbai. The event was attended by Dalai Lama as well.
Ramdev also added that one who does not understands the language of yoga must be answered in language of war. “Follow tit-for-tat. We talk in the language of Yoga but the one who doesn’t get it must be answered in language of war,” he was quoted as saying.
On the other hand, Dalai Lama said, “Fear creates irritation, irritation creates anger, anger creates violence”. The two later shared a light moment at the event.
Earlier, Dalai Lama had said that Doklam standoff can be resolved through the spirit of “Hindi-Chini bhai bhai”. The spiritual leader had said, “I don’t think it (Doklam standoff) is very serious. India and China have to live side by side.” He also spoke about 1962 when the Chinese forces which reached Bomdilla eventually withdrew.
India and China have been locked in a face-off in the Doklam area for the last 50 days after Indian troops stopped the Chinese People’s Liberation Army from building a road in the area.
“We should be ready with any kind of answer they seek. If they don’t understand peace, we should answer them with war,” Ramdev said, reports ANI. He also said that China is an epitome of “promoting war and hatred” in the world, further reiterating his appeal to boycott Chinese goods.
A few days back, Baba Ramdev appealed to the political parties in India to come together on this China issue keeping aside the political rivalry. He told ANI, “China is openly supporting the terrorists of Pakistan. We need to give a befitting reply to Pakistan and for this firstly we have to merge Pakistan Occupied Kashmir ( PoK) with India”.
Baba Ramdev also said that Chinese products should be banned in India. He said, “Every Indian should boycott China made products whether it be mobile, watches, cars, or toys”.
