Addressing  the protestors, District Chief Secretary of CFI Mohammed Imran said that the Union Government Circular making it mandatory to observe Yoga day in every educational institution  is nothing but the Hindutva agenda of Sangha Parivaar and RSS to saffronise and communalise educational institutions.  CBSE and UGC institutions have made Yogasana compulsory with controversial mantras in it, he said  and added that there was a hidden agenda to saffronise the whole nation behind this Yoga Day programme.

CFI has also demanded that there should be no  chanting of  mantras and performing surya namaskara while doing Yogasana.
