No Hindu saint given Bharat Ratna but Mother Teresa given, is it sin to be a Hindu? Asks Ramdev

Ramdev said that Christian Mother Teresa was given Bharat Ratna but no Hindu saint has been considered for the honour

Swami Ramdev has expressed disappointment over no Hindu saint being conferred with Bharat Ratna in the last 70 years despite their immense contribution to the country. Ramdev appreciated the government for honouring former President Pranak Mukherjee, Bhupen Hazarika and Nanaji Deshmukh with the highest civilian honour. But he criticised the government for not considering any Hindu saint for this award.

Ramdev said that contribution of saints like Maharishi Dayananda Saraswati, Swami Vivekananda and Shivakumar Swami, the head of Siddaganga mutt who recently passed away, was never considered by the government as worthy of recognition.

The Yog Guru alleged that Mother Teresa was given the Bharat Ratna because she was a Christian. But the contribution of the Hindu saints has been neglected by the government because they were Hindus. Ramdev questioned the government,”Hindu hona gunaah h iss desh mein? (Is being Hindu a crime in this country?”
