Ramdev issues apology for women look good without clothes remark, says his statement has been taken out of context

Days after receiving backlash for his sexist remarks, Baba Ramdev issued an apology and stated that his statements had been taken out of context and that he had also pushed for women’s empowerment throughout his career. The yoga guru recently commented about women and their clothing while he was seated next to Amruta Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, during an event.

Addressing the yoga training event in Maharashtra’s Thane on Friday, Ramdev said women look good in saris, they look great in salwar suits, and they look good even if they don’t wear anything like him. This created an uproar on social media, and people started criticizing him for such remarks.

In an apology letter, the Patanjali owner said that he has always worked towards women’s empowerment so that women get a respectable position in society. He stated that he has always encouraged various policies within the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao initiative of the Central government.
