Moradabad, Mar 27 : Moradabad Police today arrested a middle aged man, Iqbal, for sending a letter threatening yoga guru Baba Ramdev with dire consequences.
In the wake of the letter, the district administration has beefed up security arrangements at a camp that is being supervised by Baba Ramdev till March 30.
Iqbal, a resident of the Mugalsarai locality of Muradabad, is being interrogated.
Baba Ramdev reportedly advocated the two-child policy for India, while addressing his followers in Lucknow two days ago.
He said that those who maintain small families should be honoured and suggested imposing a harsh penalty on those who keep relatively large families. "It is high time for Indians to seriously think about the consequences of uncontrolled population growth, which is hampering India's transformation into one of the world's super power," and pledged his support to population control measures initiated by the Government of India.
Ramdev has popularised yoga across the world with claims of the ancient knowledge curing illnesses ranging from cancer to AIDS through breathing exercises and traditional medicines.
