Baba Ramdev says: Ved Pratap Vaidik met Hafiz Saeed to Convince Him

Ask who has come in defence of Journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik, the journalist , who has come under fierce attack for meeting with 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed? He’s no other but the Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev.

Ramdev said that Vaidik met the dreaded terrorist in his capacity as a journalist. and , in eloquent Baba’s own words,

“I am sure VP Vaidik tried to change Hafeez Saeed heart, VP Vaidik is a journalist and he can meet anyone.”

Baba Ramdev seems to have a change of heart, ever since the Modi Government came to power. All through campaigning for BJP, Baba Ramdev couldn’t tolerate even a petty terrorist. Now he’s speaking of an effort to change Hafeez Saeed’s heart — the man who’s believed to be the 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind. But this is not a surprise, just like the price hike, the terrorism can also be differentiated in BJP’s regime. When BJP comes to power, even a Hafeez Saeed becomes a man who can be reformed.

To conclude, BJP can’t distance itself from the Vaidik -Hafeez Saeed meet. If BJP can shout arrest against Writer Arundhati Roy, for she meeting with Hurriyat leaders Syed Ali Shah Geelani and others (2010); and for her speech at a seminar in Kashmir. Remember, we don’t exactly know what was discussed between Vaidik and Saeed. That’s why , the BJP Government can’t sweep aside the Vaidik-Saeed meet as a journalist’s professional right to meet anyone? If it now wants to see the Vaidik issue as Journalistic freedom, then couldn’t the same logic be applied to the Arundhati Roy’s issue, then.
