'Why no Hindu saint?': Ramdev's religious spin to Bharat Ratna

Jan 27, 2019 22:25 IST

Adding a religious spin to the Bharat Ratna award, yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Sunday questioned why no Hindu saint has been awarded the highest honour. He asked if Mother Teressa could be awarded Bharat Ratna, why any Hindu saints? 'If you can give Bharat Ratna to Mother Teresa, sportsperson, actors, then why not give it to the saints. Is Maharishi Dayanand or Vivekananda's contribution any less than theirs? Why any saint has not been conferred with Bharat Ratna so far," said Ramdev.
