Yoga guru wants '100 heads' for each Indian soldier's death

Reacting to the mutilation of two Indian soldiers at the Line of Control (LoC), Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Thursday said India should cut off the heads of 100 Paksitani soldiers for every Indian soldier's killing.

"Do not shy away from beheading 100, if they cut off the head of even one of our soldiers... India should follow Israel's cue," Ramdev said while addressing an annual press conference of his Patanjali brand of consumer goods.

"I have seen the relatives of those soldiers crying and asking why my child's body was mutilated," he added.

India has accused the Pakistani army of Monday's killing and mutilation of two Indian soldiers on the Line of Control.

Continuing in the same vein, he referred to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said "patriotism is in his blood and he won't flinch from following his duty".

On his brand Patanjali, Ramdev said by next year the homegrown label will have a production capacity of Rs 60,000 crore (S$13.1 billion).

Presently, he said, it is Rs 30,000 crore.

He said that Chinese products "must be boycotted", and cited the boycotting of foreign goods called for by Mahatma Gandhi and Chandrashekhar Azad during British rule.

"Even if one is supposed to shell out a few paise more for 'swadeshi' products, he must do so. We require a general will power for the boycotting of Chinese goods.. Foreign companies have always looted India," Ramdev said, and gave the example of the East India Company run by the British during the colonial period as one of 'plunderers'.

He also accused multinational brands like Colgate, Unilever, Proctor and Gamble, of "hoarding capital worth over Rs 50 lakh crore in India".
