As usual, all traitors, fundamentalists and anti-nationals in India enter the parliament on a Congress ticket. The behaviour of this Christian MP shows he may be on the payroll of the Chinese or the church. In a Western country, this Congress thug would have been arrested on charges of racism. But what will Congress do — even its president is a White Christian! The attitude of this Xian MP from Arunachal shows seeds of Xian separatism in the state. Arunachal is fast turning a Christian state — Buddhists there have to be careful.
Yoga guru Swami Ramdev got a taste of politics on Saturday at his yoga camp in Arunachal Pradesh’s Pasighat. Ramdev, who announced the launch of his political party in June, was allegedly called a “bloody Indian dog” by Congress MP Ninong Ering.
Taking exception to the insult, the yoga guru’s spokesperson S K Tijarawala threatened that Ering wouldn’t be allowed to come to Delhi to attend Parliament.
Ering, who has denied the charge, has been asked by Congress to explain his conduct. He, however, maintained that he protested against Ramdev for hisquestioning the merit of conferring Bharat Ratna on Rajiv Gandhi.
“When he said this, I was very hurt because I’m also his follower. I told him to limit himself to the yoga camp. I’m very proud of being an Indian. I’m a member of the Hindi committee in the state. Why would I say such things?” Ering told TOI.
He claimed that he met Ramdev later and apologised to him for disrupting the yoga camp. “He told me that I’ve a very short temper, and gifted me a rudraksha to control it. He is a great man. He has forgiven me. I’m preparing the explanation that the party has sought,” he added.
Tijarawala said Ering’s vented his ire when when Ramdev was talking about corruption and black money stashed in tax havens abroad. “For a second, Baba got angry and said `how dare somebody call me a bloody Indian in India’. But he soon controlled himself, and urged the crowd not to harm Ering. He reasoned that in a democracy people have other ways of showing their anger. The education minister who was on the stage apologised to Baba immediately. But, we won’t him let him get away so easily,” the spokesman said.
The yoga guru’s followers will hold a buddhi suddhi yoga in front of Ering’s South Avenue residence here on Sunday.
Here is another report.
Hindu Yoga guru Ramdev today alleged that he was called as a ‘bloody Indian’’ by a Christian Congress MP from Arunchal East Parliamentary constituencyof Arunachal Pradesh in public view during a yoga camp in the state, a charge denied by the lawmaker even as the incident drew condemnation from the BJP. This Congress MP, Ninong Ering is a Christian by faith.
“He is calling me bloody Indian…. In India I am being called a bloody Indian… this has happened for the first time,” Ramdev said pointing to Congress MP Ninong Ering, who was standing near the dais where the yoga guru was sitting during the camp at Pasighat in East Siang. This pro Christian MP of Congress party hails from Pashighat and connected with various Evangelical Programmes of North Eastern Hill Church Council.
However, the MP denied saying anything against Ramdev and claimed that he had only objected after the yoga guru leveled allegations of corruption against the Nehru-Gandhi family and the central government.
“This is very unfortunate. I never said anything against him… At the end of the session, he started speaking about politics.. so I said ‘Babaji, I think we should stick to yoga instead of going into politics’. I think he couldn’t hear me…. then his bodyguards came and pushed me,” Ering who represents Eastern Arunachal constituency said.
District Magistrate Onit Panyang said Education Minister Bosiram Siram had intervened and sought an apology from Ering.
The BJP was quick to condemn the alleged remarks made by the lawmaker, saying the MP had no right to sit in Parliament if he did not consider himself an Indian.
“Ering’s comments are utterly irresponsible and seditious. He has abused Baba Ramdev and called him a bloody Indian. We condemn this outburst. Ramdev is a revered figure,” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.
The principal opposition also asked Ering if he considered himself an Indian.
“When he calls somebody a bloody Indian does Ering not recognise Arunachal Pradesh to be a part of India? If he does not consider himself an Indian then he has no right to sit in Parliament,” he said.
BJP demanded that the Congress and the government take “immediate action” against Ering.
The Congress, meanwhile, said that it was looking into the matter.
“Nobody should use uncivilised language in any walk of life,” Congress spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed said but quickly added he would comment only after inquiring into the matter.
“We will inquire into it… We respect Baba Ramdev for his contribution in the field of yoga. We will comment once the concerned general secretary in-charge apprises us,” Ahmed said.
