[Aizawl] Zoram Nationalist Party Opposes Yoga & Aadhar
Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP) today demanded that the Centre refrain from “imposing” Yoga in educational institutions and Aadhar on the people.
Terming Yoga as part of Hinduism, the ZNP, in a statement said the party did not have any objection to it, but it has reservation on imposition of the exercise in educational institutions.
The party said imposing Yoga in the schools was against the “principles of secularism” and the Congress government in the state should have the “courage to oppose it”.
The ZNP also asked the Centre to issue clarifications on Aadhar number, claiming that people without Aadhar cards were unable to receive some benefits from the government including LPG subsidies.
The Supreme Court on August 11, 2015 ruled that having Aadhar card was an individual’s choice, the party said, adding that the Centre seemed to be imposing Aadhar card on its citizens.

UN Chief Ban Ki-moon said Yoga does not discriminate, brings satisfaction
Emphasising that yoga does not discriminate, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said he discovered the “simple sense of satisfaction” it brings when he tried his first “asana” during his visit to India.
In his message for the first International Day of Yoga to be observed on June 21, Ban recalled that it took him a while to gain his balance when he tried yoga for the first time in New Delhi during his visit in January but soon realised it can be done by anyone.
The UN spokesperson had also tweeted a photo of Ban doing his first yoga asana.
He said Yoga offers a “simple, accessible and inclusive” means to promote physical and spiritual health and well-being.
In proclaiming June 21 as the International Day of Yoga, the UN General Assembly has recognised the “holistic benefits of this timeless practice and its inherent compatibility with the principles and values of the United Nations,”
He Said “Yoga offers a simple, accessible and inclusive means to promote physical and spiritual health and well-being. It promotes respect for one’s fellow human beings and for the planet we share,”
The International Day of Yoga was a brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had mooted the idea in his maiden address to the General Assembly in September last year.Source Agency

Justice Singh also said ‘Asanas’ of yoga cannot be copyrighted by anyone as one cannot claim originality over the ‘Asanas’ due to their extensive presence in India’s literature and traditional knowledge.
Referring to a judgement delivered by him in January 2014, rejecting intellectual property rights in yoga, the judge said the verdict had “a greater impact on the emerging trend of commercialising Yoga and its Asanas”.
“Yoga finds its place in Granthas as well as mythological books like Bhagavad Gita and has always been considered as sourced from India.
“Indian government’s position of celebrating International Yoga Day is one of the ways of connecting people of India with the spiritual practice, though the religious books of India are already prescribing it on day to day basis as a way to attain peace and tranquillity,”
