Entire country must stand beside Rafia NaazThe young woman teaches Yoga at Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand. She likes it, she loves it and she has learnt it. Now she has been trying to share her knowledge with other people in the locality. She did not speak against anybody, she did not create any controversy. But even then, a group of religious leaders issued a fatwa against her.
But the fatwa was not an end. To prove that these leaders mean business, her house was attacked. Stone-pelting was going on when she was being interviewed by a TV channel. The young woman is now terrified.
Yoga-guru Baba Ramdev has come out in her support. Maulana Saif Abbas, a Shia cleric, has come out in her support. Both of them have advised people not to mix religion with Yoga.
Now the common people of India must express solidarity with the young woman, Ms. Rafia Naaz. Steps must be taken so that she can continue teaching Yoga to her students,
