As the standoff between India and China over Doklam continues, Baba Ramdev today said that China doesn’t believe in peace and understands the language of war.
“China doesn’t believe in peace. Had they done that Dalai Lama wouldn’t be here,” said Baba Ramdev at a world peace and harmony conclave in Mumbai.
Asking for a tit-for-tat approach to China, yoga guru Ramdev said, “We talk in the language of yoga but the one who doesn’t get it must be answered in language of war”.
Dalai Lama, who also attended the conclave, said, “Fear creates irritation, irritation creates anger, and anger creates violence”.
The two later shared a light moment and Baba Ramdev touched the feet of Dalai Lama.

A few days ago, Dalai Lama had said that the spirit of “Hindi-Chini bhai bhai” is the only way forward in resolving the Doklam standoff.
“I don’t think it (Doklam standoff) is very serious. India and China have to live side by side,” the spiritual leader said, adding that in 1962 Chinese forces which reached Bomdilla eventually withdrew.
The face-off began in mid-June after Indian troops stopped the Chinese Army from building a road in the Doklam area, which is near the Sikkim section of the India-China border.
India blamed China for trying to alter the status quo and attempting to move the India-China-Bhutan tri-junction point to the south. Beijing, on the other hand, has slammed New Delhi for what it says is Indian troops transgressing into Chinese territory.
