Yoga instructor Satinath Baral has been arrested by Darrang police in Kolkata on Thursday.

On September 28, during a yoga camp held in Duni in Darrang district of Assam on September 28 this year, Baral said that Srimanta Sankardev wasn’t a saint and there was nothing spiritual about the Namghars in Assam. He had also called the use of mustard oil to light earthen lamps in Namghars “sheer stupidity”.
