Nepal's Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli had earlier claimed that the real Ayodhya is in Nepal. Now he has said that Yoga was born in Nepal. He says that yoga was discovered even before India came into existence. Oli made this statement while addressing a program on International Yoga Day.
However, this is not his first claim to claim Indian heritage as his own. Earlier, he has told India's Ayodhya as fake and said that the real Ayodhya is near Birganj. On the occasion of International Yoga Day, Oli said that yoga was first started in Nepal.
Said - Indian experts hiding the facts
Oli said that at the time of the beginning of yoga, India was not made but it was scattered in many pieces. He said that Indian experts are hiding facts related to this. Oli, on the other hand, is facing criticism in Nepal. He is accused of creating controversy with India to hide the shortcomings of his government.
Claimed on Lord Rama
Last year, PM Oli had staked his claim on Lord Ram and Ayodhya. Oli had said that Ayodhya is in Nepal and India has committed cultural encroachment by creating a fake Ayodhya. Prime Minister Oli made this statement at a program organized on the birth anniversary of poet Bhanubhakta Acharya. He had said that Nepal has been culturally oppressed. At the same time, he said that the historical facts related to Nepal have also been tampered with.
Oli said that we still believe that we gave Sita to the Indian prince Ram, but we had married Sita to the prince of Ayodhya located in Nepal, not to the prince of Ayodhya of India. The Nepalese Prime Minister argued on his claim that if India's Ayodhya was real, then why would the princes of that place come so far to Janakpuri to get married?
