Baba Ramdev, in response to the controversy, denied making such statements and clarified, “I have never said anything as such. I was talking about Owaisi. He and his predecessors have always had anti-national thinking. I don’t take him seriously.”

The incident has fueled online protests with the hashtag #boycottpatanjali gaining momentum, as individuals express their dissatisfaction and criticize Ramdev for the alleged insult aimed at the backward community. Concurrently, Asaduddin Owaisi, responding on his X account, shared retweets countering Ramdev’s statements and claiming a distortion of his original remarks. Also, Mohammed Zubair (ALT News) tweeted both videos on X (Twitter).

The controversy raises questions about responsible discourse and the impact of statements made by influential figures on social harmony.
