Yoga originated in Nepal, not in India: KP Sharma Oli


Kathmandu: Nepal caretaker Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli again stirred controversy and sparked speculation by claiming that Yoga originated in Nepal and not India.

“Yoga originated in Nepal, not in India. At the time when Yoga came into existence, there was no existence of India; it was divided into factions,” caretaker Prime Minister Oli said. Oli made the statement while addressing a programme held at his residence Baluwatar on the occasion of International Yoga Day.

Oli also claimed that Indian experts have been hiding facts about it. “India that exists now wasn’t there in the past. Divided into factions, India at that time was like a continent or sub-continent,” Oli added.

In July last year, Oli had claimed that Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Rama, is in Nepal and Lord Rama was Nepali.
