 People doing yoga will definitely decrease rapes, says Murli Manohar Joshi

Kanpur: If every common people routinely follow yoga into the life, it will help in bringing down incidents of rape in the country, veteran BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said.
In a remark that may spark a controversy, he also said that Muslims do yoga five times in a day and termed "Prophet Mohammad as the greatest yogi".
"I believe if yoga comes into the life of common people, then the daily incidents of rape, I would not say, it would come to a halt, but there will definitely be a decrease in them," Joshi has said.
"It will create a new way of thinking amongst men and women. Changing the way one feels for a human body...that the body is such a machine which nature has given us for some larger work... people's attention will go towards this," he said.

He was speaking during a seminar on the "The Iyengar way - Yoga for the new millennium".
Referring to an experiment done in New York on transcendental medication introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Joshi said that when a vice chancellor of a university reviewed it, it was found that the crime rate in New York had come down while the inmates in jails had undergone change in their behaviour.
"Our Muslim brothers do yoga five times in a day. The postures of 'namaz'...in that two or three postures, even you will be able to tell (which are they).
"That is why I think Mohammad sahab was a great yogi. As this prescription is of praying to god...connecting it to yoga, he could not have done it without practising yoga," he said.
Referring to the government's focus on skill development, Joshi said that that there should be coordinated group between various ministries including Ayush, Education, Health and Skills which would see how yoga can be utilized in ones social and economic life.
Referring to a former Army chief who had advertised yoga in the Army, Joshi suggested that the country's security forces should also be given yoga education.
"My suggestion is that our country's Army and police should be given yoga education and practice. If policemen start doing yoga, they would be able to convince people through talks and there will be a change in their behaviour as well," he said.
Joshi observed that yoga was the greatest option of bringing peace, public order and prosperity in the entire country and said it is very essential to introduce yoga in every wing of education.
He said that yoga brings sharing and caring and programmes on yoga is very important for world peace. India can benefit the world through yoga, ayurveda and Sanskrit language, he said.
