AYUSH Ministry says RTI on Yoga trainers fabricated

A new RTI reply claims it has exposed the Narendra Modi government’s claims of working towards sabka saath, sabka vikas (inclusive growth).

According to new RTI reply accessed by Milli Gazette, Modi government’s AYUSH Ministry said that the central government policy did not permit them recruiting Muslims.

The RTI request was filed by investigative journalist Pushp Sharma, who had asked about Muslim teachers and trainers recruited by the AYUSH ( Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) Ministry for foreign assignments during the World Yoga Day last year.

In its reply, the ministry said that a total of 711 Muslim yoga trainers had applied for the short-term assignment abroad but none was even called for an interview while 26 trainers were sent abroad on this assignment.

The reply said that the government policy was not to recruit Muslims.

It said, ““As per government policy – No Muslim candidate was invited, selected or sent abroad.”

The reply also revealed that 3841 Muslim candidates applied till October 2015 for the post of Yoga trainer/teacher with the Ministry but none was selected.

Sharma wrote, “It is common knowledge that the ongoing communal agenda of the Modi government is responsible for raising the level of communal hatred in the country to an unprecedented high level even in government corridors though it is difficult to prove it.”

The full article will appear in Milli Gazette’s coming 16-31 March print edition.

The AYUSH minister Sripad Naik told ANI, “It is totally false,I strongly condemn it. Its an attempt to defame us, I will order a probe into this.”

  1. Who the idiot was policy maker to prevent muslims from being Yoga teacher? It was a golden opportunity to spread pluralistic culture within Islam and Muslims.

    • Assuming that this news is even true let me remind people here that Muslim leaders opposed vehemently against Yoga so what if after recruiting those leaders say that Narendra Modi GOvt is trying to do a Ghar Wapsi, besides nothing here says that its a policy!

  2. C’mon…this has got to be a typo or grammar mistake. The RTI reply actually said they do not hire any Muslims? We all know the hidden communal agenda of BJP….but this is brazen open admission,,,i mean they actually have a clause which states ‘do not hire muslims’?! Is this really happening?

  3. Some of us wonders why Muslims do not vote for bjp?

    Fact is

    Muslims do vote every parties except bjp….

    But a section of ppl do not vote any party but bjp

    Fundamental Q is

    ‪#‎WhoIsComunal‬

    and “sabka sath sab ka bikas”

    is GOD FATHER of all JUMALs

    • Common this is against law and Constitution of India, you could not differentiate on the basis of caste or religion. This could be challenged in court easily. I

  4. Assuming that this news is even true let me remind people here that Muslim leaders opposed vehemently against Yoga so what if after recruiting those leaders say that Narendra Modi GOvt is trying to do a Ghar Wapsi, besides nothing here says that its a policy!!

    • Wrong! Their leaders insisted on Yoga. Read DNA news on “Yoga is a clean thing, say Muslim experts” or their own site: https :// islamqa. info/en/101591

  5. There are clear chances that the form of yoga could be defaced.
    Better to avoid the people who are not brought up in Indian traditional way.

    Already all we know…unfortunately Certainly people wouldn’t do surya namakar and other things, Bcoz West Asian tradition don’t have these things.

  6. Muslims oppose yoga tooth and nail but want all possible benefits. How can this be possible. They oppose this ancient Indian science just for the sake of non Indian Islam. In India yoga, since it is Indian should be on a higher pedestal than Islam and Christianity because they are not Indian but foreign.

  7. Why’s there a blank space right after Mr Sharma’s name is mentioned. It is blacked out, both in mention in the Sub, and at end of letter? If that contains his address, does he fear undue attention placed on his home. Or is there something else we dont see there, that Mr Sharma wants to hide. Also how long has been this policy in force, since when?

  8. What the hell is this? All these subjects are not aligned to Islam by principle. So, I should this be called biased? In this way Muslims will be able to focus on Islam and not have to know anything which was contributed by Hindu thoughts.

  9. Yes. No Muslim becomes eligible to act as Yoga teacher because as per their religion since they (Muslims) are not supposed to equate anything on the earth even it were to be a word or ryhm with their Almighty Allah.

    Have you forgotten that what the Muslim clergy said when the Union Government insisted that Yoga should be taught to the school children. “It is against our tenants since Muslims should not chant `OM’ a religious mantra of Hindus while taking deep breath as part of Yoga”, this was the message given by them.

    Thus, being the real secular government, Prime Minister Narendra Damodara Doss Modi’s government accepted their statement on the face value of it.

    Then how could anyone expect, a Muslim to be engaged a trainer of Yoga by the government which weighs the sentiments of people be it Hindus, Muslims or Christians.

  10. What is going on with this country?? Our values speak of plurality, equality, separation of religion and state, state is supposed to treat all equally and not see citizens through the veil of their thoughts and belief system. This government’s policies are destroying all the values this country stands for as stated in our Constitution. It’s shameful and frightening. They need to stop this duplicity and actually do “sabka saath sabka vikas” and not turn this phrase into dead letter by having this narrow religion outlook

  11. Narendra Modi is a Muslim himself and that is the reason he does not speak Indian languages and only uses the Pakistani Islamic origin language Hindi alone. Modi’s goal is Muslimize India by imposing the Pakistani language Hindi across India and converting Indian language speakers into Muslim language Hindi speakers. Aayush purpose is also Muslimization of India that is why they do Music competition in Muslim language Hindi alone and not Indian languages..

  12. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a Muslim himself who does not even speak in Indian languages. In fact AAYUSH operates only in the Pakistani language Hindi and not in Indian languages. THis is one more news which creates Professional Victims of Muslims..
