India denies role in Ramdev questioning at London

Sep 22 2013, 7:34am CDT | by IANS

New Delhi, Sep 22 (IANS) The external affairs ministry Sunday denied that it had any role in the detention of yoga guru Baba Ramdev at London's Heathrow airport.

New Delhi, Sep 22 — The external affairs ministry Sunday denied that it had any role in the detention of yoga guru Baba Ramdev at London's Heathrow airport.

"No truth whatsoever in such malicious rumours whatsoever," external affairs ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin tweeted in reply to a tweet asking whether the ministry had issued any Red Corner alert against Ramdev.

Ramdev was detained at London's Heathrow airport for eight hours by British immigration and customs officials and then released Saturday.

Ramdev's spokesman S.K. Tejarawala said the yoga guru was neither asked any question nor was his luggage checked.

"Swamiji felt harassment there," Tejarawala said.

Ramdev was reportedly questioned by the immigration officials as he traveled to Britain on a visitor visa instead of a business visa, and he was also questioned by customs about certain medicines he was carrying with him.

"He (Ramdev) asked several times to immigration authorities why he was detained as he had done no crime or illegal thing in his life, but the authorities kept mum and replied nothing," Tejarawala said.

"Swamiji was carrying only four sets of clothes and a diary containing facts and figures related to his agitation and movement, and Ved mantras in Sanskrit and Hindi," he said in a statement.

"This incident is a case of gross insult to the pride and prestige of 125 crore Indians. Swamiji had visited the UK several times in the last seven years and conducted many yoga camps."

Ramdev is visiting London to attend a function organised by the Patanjali Yogpeeth on the 120th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's speech at the World Parilament of Religions in Chicago in 1893.

The Future of Farming and Rise of Biotechnology

Oct 21 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: National Center for Policy Analysis

There is a great deal of controversy over genetically modified crops; some countries have banned their growth entirely, while others have placed strict regulatory restrictions on production. David Weisser, research associate with the National Center for Policy Analysis, argues that biotechnology is necessary. As the world's population continues to grow (it is projected to reach 9.1 billion by 2050), global food production will have to increase by 70 percent in order to meet demand. Scienti ...

A proper use of phone and pen

Oct 13 2014 4:37pm CDT | Source: WND

An over-zealous administration is destroying America’s coal industry and threatens to use executive action to further environmental restrictions on U.S. businesses. All the while, China and India continue to increase CO2 in the atmosphere at an alarming rate. A proper use of the president’s phone and pen would be to place an environmental tax on imported products from China and India until those country’s emissions fall under acceptable (California) levels. Until then, U.S. businesses sho ...
