SummaryBaba Ramdev says holy men must stay away from women as Hindu scriptures ordain.

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev today said that sages and holy men should avoid being alone with women, including their mothers, daughters and mothers-in-law, as that was the prescription laid down in Hindu scriptures.

"One of the principles of ideal behaviour for saints prescribed by the scriptures is to maintain a distance from women, including their mothers, daughters and mothers-in-law," Ramdev said.

Ramdev's reference was to the recent arrest of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu on charges of sexually assaulting a minor girl.

Without taking any names, Ramdev said that any holyman who violated the said prescription of dignified behaviour was sure to land in trouble.

"Some may be facing allegations today, some may face them tomorrow if this scriptural prescription is violated," Baba Ramdev said.
