Amend law to make everybody say `Bharat Mata Ki Jai', says Baba Ramdev
Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Wednesday said that a country-wide ban on cow slaughter is necessary to prevent sectarian clashes and foster communal harmony. He also said that it was necessary to amend the law to make everyone chant `Bharat Mata Ki Jai'.

Baba Ramdev's comments came in wake of the AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi saying that he would never say `Bharat Mata Ki Jai'. Ramdev asserted that the Centre should amend the law to promote the chanting of the slogan `Bharat Mata Ki Jai'.

Ramdev said, "Even though it is not written in the Constitution that one should say `Bharat Mata Ki Jai', there should be no problem in chanting it… Therefore an amendment should be made in the law so that everyone says it."

While talking to reporters at the city airport the yoga guru said, "It is my humble appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enforce a total ban on cow slaughter across the country. I am hopeful to get a positive response from the PM.

"I believe that a country-wide ban would bring harmony between various communities and reduce communal clashes". The Baba also claimed that till the 18th century there was no cow slaughter in India and "even Mughal emperor Aurangzeb had imposed a total ban on it."

He said, "Uttar Pradesh which is highly-sensitive state, has imposed a ban on cow slaughter too."

Ramdev also took the opportunity to slam Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for his comparison of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar, who faces sedition charges with Shaheed Bhagat Singh.

He said, "This is an insult to the martyrs who had laid down their lives fighting for the freedom of our country."
