Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday that “India is not hungry for any post” at any of the international platforms.

Addressing the valedictory session of the international conference on ‘Yoga for Holistic Health’ here, the home minister said India, being the birth place of Yoga, never wanted to become a world leader in propagating Yoga but wanted everyone in the world to live in good health and peace.

“India is not hungry for any post. India has always practiced ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ which says the world is one family,” he said.

Indian sages and saints always looked beyond welfare of the countrymen. They always propagated the idea that the entire world was one family and worked for the welfare of all.

Talking about India and the world observing International Day of Yoga on Sunday, the minister expressed happiness saying that the entire world was in a festive mood.

“There was a festive mood not only in India but all over the world. The entire world has practised Yoga, which doesn’t belong to one religion or caste,” he said, adding that the entire credit for making International Yoga Day a reality goes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Rajnath Singh also observed that Yoga does not separate people from each other as it does not belong to any particular religion.

“There are people who relate it to a particular religion but it is not the case… on International Day of Yoga even Islamic countries participated in functions to observe the day,” Rajnath Singh said.

On the occasion, the minister also launched a scheme for voluntary certification of Yoga professionals, recognising that Quality Council of India (QCI) has expertise in developing such quality framework based on international best practices.

Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Yasso Naik, and AYUSH Secretary Nilanjan Sanyal were among those who attended the programme.
