Human justice and national interest is my top priority - Baba Ramdev

I had neither any knowledge of the particular Article nor any comment I made about it. This is the subject of constitutional experts to worry about. My worry is only one and that is any poor should be helped and I do not distinguish poor on the basis of caste and religion, for me all poor people are my brother and they all are equal. May they be of any religion or any caste!
I am a monk and as a monk it is my duty to help any human life and I do not distinguish between humans. For me the question is not of Hindu or Muslim. This is the issue of providing justice to all humans. As far as the question of reservation is, first we believe that the reservation should be on the basis of poverty –whether the poor is a “dalit” (schedule caste) or of higher class. The Constitution of India has provided her every citizen the right of freedom, but if anyone converts them by lure, torcher, entice, or political pressure then it is most unrighteous. That person is not converting people but doing sinful act and there should be a provision in law that such conversions do not happen in India due to fear of torcher and enticements. This alone will automatically prove the goal of rendering social and religious justice.
When I say of providing justice to every poor, backward and weak person of all castes, all religions, all languages, all provinces, and if some people take its advantage for getting wholesale votes and converting their religion in wholesale then there cannot be any worst immoral work than this. They are seeking their selfish interest by exploiting the poverty of masses. I can never support these people. Whether it is a religious conversion of people or changing their political beliefs in their own favor all this work is unrighteous. This is the murder of righteousness, I cannot support them. But I consider it the duty of the government to help needy citizens irrespective of their castes, religions or provinces by providing them specific relief and financial subsidies.
