Baba Ramdev advises sages to maintain distance from women

Haridwar: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today said that sages and holymen should avoid being alone with women, including their mothers, daughters and mothers-in-law, as that was the prescription laid down in Hindu scriptures.

"One of the principles of ideal behaviour for saints prescribed by the scriptures is to maintain a distance from women, including their mothers, daughters and mothers-in-law," Baba Ramdev said.

His reference was to the recent arrest of self-proclaimed god-man Asaram Bapu on charges of sexually assaulting a minor girl.

Without taking any names, Baba Ramdev said that any holyman who violated the said prescription of dignified behaviour was sure to land in trouble.

"Some may be facing allegations today, some may face them tomorrow if this scriptural prescription is violated," he said.
