Baba Ramdev has done too many things in the past few days to badly sully his reputation. In this process he has let himself down, and worse, created a situation where people can no longer trust his good judgement. He has shown disregard for basic concept of law and order. That is step too far for anyone to take.
He can redeem himself even now, but only if he completely changes his methods. The following steps are suggested:
1) As a first step let him withdraw his fast. This idea is stupid and not necessary. There are many good ways to eliminate corruption. Fasting unto death is not one of them.
2) Let him apologise for his idea of a "sena" and send everyone who has come to him for arms training, away.
3) Then let him remain silent for a while and contemplate his actions. His methods of removing corruption could NEVER have worked. So let him consider more sensible ways, such as those provided in detail in my book, BFN.
4) Let him move into PROPER, ELECTORAL POLITICS. Let him use the polling booth to promote his ideas.
By cooperating with the government to the extent he can, and using CONSTITUTIONAL methods, he will bring calm and order to the situation, and people can then focus on the key issue – of corruption.
Currently, he has himself become the centre of discussion, not the issues he wants to resolve.
