Surya Namaskar is a complete workout



“Surya Namaskar is a complete workout fr the physical system,a comprehensive exercise form without any need fr equipment. #KaifKeFitnessFunde,” tweeted Mohammed Kaif.

Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif found himself at the centre of a social media controversy after uploading pictures of him doing ‘Surya Namaskar’. Kaif posted four pictures of his workout which included ‘Surya Namaskar’ — a yoga posture. The photographs invited snide remarks from twitter trolls with some accusing him of violating his religious beliefs.


However, the former India batsman, who has played 13 Tests and 125 ODIs hit back at the trolls saying that physical exercise has got nothing to do with religion. “In all 4pics, I had Allah in my heart. Can’t understand what doing any exercise, Surya Namaskar or Gym has to do with religion. It benefits ALL,” he tweeted.



  1. High significance of word “Namaskar ” used very frequently !!!

    “Namaskar” being a Sanskrit word consists of three words by Rule Sandichead, of Sanskrit Grammer & it is = Namah + tai + Aakara = I Bow + to your + Image. Here the word “Image” represents God, as we find the Images of God at all places Of worship like Temples, Churches, Gurdwaras, kashmiri ThakurKuth/God’s room & so on; in the form of Idols, Statues, Sculptures, Photographs & so on.Also it is said that All Human Beings are in the Image of God which means that each one of us has the Goodness/Virtues of God present in us, such as Love, Compassion, Sincerety, Honesty, Foregiveness, sympathy, Forbearance & so on & on.
    As such we use Namaskar by word of mouth &/or by Folded Hands, wnen we meet each other person & when after meeting we depart. All that exercise is a cool reminder to each other person of the virtues of God present in each one of us. Thus the word Namaskar has a very High Significance, & needs awareness.
