NEW DELHI: In a bid to win over some sections of Muslim community, the Muslim Rashtriya Manch, an RSS outfit, came out with a book titled ‘Yoga and Islam’. The book was launched by AYUSH Minister Shripad Naik.  The 32-page booklet, which has chapters named as ‘yoga is not un-Islamic’, ‘objective of yoga is not to spread Hindu religion’, ‘namaz is one sort of yoga asana’ and ‘yoga is not unknown to Muslims’, draws parallels between some yoga exercises and namaaz.
