His use of the crosses has stirred outrage among Christian communities in India. In the video, Ramdev pushes for the use of "swadeshi" products and said: "We have achieved political independence but not economic independence". You can check out the ad here.

"It is shocking that the cross, which is the symbol of Jesus, is shown in the advertisement", said Jerry Paul, who is convener of the Sarva Isai Mahasabha, a Christian organisation said.

The organisation has also urged Ramdev to remove the advertisement and requested him to answer a number of questions.

The EIC is actually mentioned in the video. "East India Company came and looted and destroyed India for 200 years. We have achieved political independence but not economic independence."
