Goa Govt to Introduce 'Secular Yoga' in School Curriculum


Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today announced introduction of "secular Yoga" in school curriculum.

"We will introduce secular Yoga in the educational curriculum," Parrikar told the Legislative Assembly.

Parrikar also clarified that he was using the word "secular" to avoid any objection to the move, by the opposition.

"If anyone has objection about the word 'Yoga' then raise it right now. I am repeating, we will have secular yoga in the curriculum," he said.

In a dig at the opposition, the chief minister said, "The comments made by a minister on Hindu nation were first picked up by media and later raised by the opposition benches. You have this habit of reacting next day."

Parrikar was referring to the remarks made by Dipak Dhavlikar, a minister belonging to BJP's ally Maharashtravadi Gomantak Party (MGP).

Dhavlikar had said, "The country will develop into a Hindu nation under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi."
