But the government's push for "yoga for harmony and peace" met with criticism in the run-up to Sunday, with some religious minorities accusing PM. Modi of pushing a pro-Hindu agenda in officially secular India.

A few Muslim groups have complained that chanting the sacred Hindu sound of "Om" during yoga and certain poses, such as "surya namaskar" or sun salutation, have clear Hindu overtones and were against Islam.

Why we practice YOGA? Is it because it is against Islam? Mmmm... What Next !

Its hard for Muslim women to do Yoga wearing their Burqa. They can't put their legs up in the air while wearing a Burqa & doing Yoga..hence they are protesting.

Guys,

Please keep religion out of discussion here. We don't need to drag the discussion in another direction.

Thanks.

The views expressed were not mine. I got a different web page when I searched and it had the "Quote" in that and I just pasted it to provide a different view and outlook and the comments made upon the Yoga Display conducted by P.M.Modi.

If I offended anyone or any religious minded group, it was not intentional. It was one such remarks made by them that was brought to your attention.

In the first link they made a correction. Here is another reproduction of the same.

http://tribune.com.pk/story/907300/india-bends-it-like-modi-on-first-world-yoga-day/

Many groups practice YOGA and it has caught on as a beneficial exercise routine and praise such activities that provide and maintain flexibility of the body, mind and soul and extend their life span to top it off. Yoga has been different things to different people and all of them do not praise its benefits and virtues. A few will object to its usage and propagation due to its origins and practice.

Different folks, different strokes.

Not being able to maintain such postures for a prolonged period, I took to TAI-CHI and found it to be my testing grounds. But it does not provide nor expand it to the breathing field, that which it lacks.

If on a day, I am unable to flex myself with these easy exercises, I limit my work routines to suit my body movements.

What am objecting to is their interference and criticism about other religions, their dress and food. They should stick to their religion belief and should not poke their nose in their religion. Is that asking too much??
