Baba Ramdev who is an Indian yoga guru known for his work in Ayurveda, business, politics and agriculture. He also co-founded the Patanjali Ayurveda Ltd.
Baba Ramdev who provided the message ( "योग से निरोग" ) of being healthy through Yoga has been criticised on social media platforms by users for being operated in Germany for knee surgery.
A photograph has been viral on various social media platforms with the caption that read :
" करो योग , रहो निरोग " योग गुरु रामदेव के घुटनो का जर्मनी में सफल ऑपरेशन ! ! " तुम स्वदेशी अपनाओ " ये आदमी ही कहता था ना . . . मूत्र पीने और गोबर खाने से फलां रोग ठीक होता है ढिमका रोग ठीक होता है ? . . . . खुद खाता नहीं दूसरों को खिलाता है ।
"Do yoga, stay healthy" Yoga Guru Ramdev's knees successful operation in Germany! ! "You should adopt indigenous" This man used to say no . .that drinking urine and dung, this disease is cured, that disease is cured ? . . . . Not eating themselves, feeds them to others. ~ Translation
In the picture, Baba Ramdev can be seen in a hospital and surrounded by people who are trying to make him drink something with glass.
After reverse searching the image, we found a news report from Business Line dated June 2011 in which this picture was used. Through the article we got to know that there was no knee operation , it was just Baba Ramdev was on hunger strike and had given up his nine-day fast after being persuaded by Sri Sri Ravishankar and other spiritual leaders.
He had been on a hunger strike since June 4 demanding a tougher anti-corruption law and seeking return of black money stashed away abroad.
It was a fake news , Baba Ramdev was not operated in Germany.
