Yoga should not be forced: Mizoram Governor


Mizoram Governor, Lt. Gen. Nirbhay Sharma (retd.) on Thursday suggested that the controversy over yoga should be sorted out by talks and no one should be forced to practice it.

His views came soon after Church bodies asked their members across the Christian—dominated state to refrain from the practice of yoga.

“The argument over yoga should be sorted out through mutual talks and no one should be compelled to practice yoga... it should be practiced willingly,” Sharma told media in the Mizoram capital.— IANS
