Yoga has nothing to do with religion and those who attribute religious connotations to the “ancient science” cause “immense harm” to humanity, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said today.
Stressing on more research in this field, Naidu said yoga was a science of well-being that needed to be studied and practiced just like any other medical system.
“Yoga has nothing to do with religion. Some people unfortunately attribute religious overtones to this ancient scientific system. Those who do this are causing immense harm to humanity,” he said while inaugurating the two-day ‘International Conference on Yoga for Wellness’ here.
