Ramdev trolled for underwater photo with national flag in hand


Patanjali founder Ramdev on Saturday faced incessant trolling after he posted a photo of himself underwater while holding the national flag of India. According to Ramdev, he had got himself clicked in Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu.


His caption read, “Salute to my mother land, from Rameshwaram, Tamilnadu (sic)” In the photo, Ramdev can be seen neck deep in the ocean while holding a tricolour in one hand.

No sooner had the controversial godman posted the photo, he began to face trolling on Twitter. His photo also became a source of funny social media jokes and memes. Here are some of the hilarious tweets in response to Ramdev’s photo.

Ramdev, a known supporter of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was recently in news for stating that he wasn’t sure who the next prime minister of India will be. This was largely seen as his tacit disapproval of Modi as the prime minister of India after the next Lok Sabha polls.

He had said, “Now the political situation is very difficult. We cannot say who will (be) the next prime minister or who will lead the country, but situation is very interesting…”

Meanwhile, in a first-of-its-kind order, the Uttarakhand High Court has directed a company run by Ramdev to share a percentage of its profits with local farmers and communities. The high court, according to news agency PTI, gave the order while rejecting a petition of Divya Pharmacy against the Uttarakhand Biodiversity Board and upholding the provisions of fair and equitable benefit-sharing as provided under the Biological Diversity Act, 2002.
