No, Baba Ramdev didn’t insult OBC community, here is the full video of what he said

Baba Ramdev is very famous for Yoga Guru. Recently, a Congress leader shared a viral video of Baba Ramdev and accused him of being anti-OBC. After this video, controversy arose against Ramdev Baba due to which the trend of boycotting Patanjali’s products started. But the claim made in the video is completely wrong, now the complete video of Baba Ram Dev is going viral on social media.

According to the video of Ramdev Baba that went viral, he is a Brahmin. In a viral clip on a TV channel, he said, “I am an Agnihotri Brahmin. People say that Babaji is an OBC. I am a Vedi Brahmin, Dwivedi Brahmin, Trivedi Brahmin, Chaturvedi Brahmin, I have read the four Vedas.” However, a recently surfaced complete video clip on social media reveals that his original statement had a different context, suggesting a shift in the interpretation of his intentions.

According to the full video, ‘Baba Ramdev is saying that he should not be associated with just one group – he belongs to all castes. Although he belongs to OBC he does not want to associate with anyone. After watching the first viral clip, a trend of boycotting Patanjali started on the social media platform Twitter. And many such controversial posts were also shared.

“Why has fraud Ramdev, who insulted the OBC community, not been arrested yet?”. A social media coordinator of Congress wrote while sharing the viral video. In a post, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi criticized Ramdev for taking a ‘U-turn’ on his ‘OBC statement,’ and called it a statement against Owaisi.

The controversy over Baba Ramdev’s remarks has sparked heated debate on social media platforms. As the full video unfolds, it can be seen that his statement was misunderstood. Despite the clarification, losses caused by the initial misinterpretation led to a boycott of Patanjali products. The incident highlights the influence of social media in shaping public opinion and the challenges of tackling sensitive topics in the digital age. It also underlines the need for careful verification of information before drawing conclusions in the age of viral content and online activism.
