In yet another salvo at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Shiv Sena on Thursday said bringing yoga to the centre stage of the world was a praise-worthy effort, but will practising the ancient form of exercise relieve people of the pain of inflation.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi deserves praise for making 130 countries perform yoga. The world bends if somebody makes it do so. Through yoga, Modi made 130 nations lay on the ground.

"What is now needed is to make Pakistan lie down forever. This can only happen with the help of weapons.

Pakistan deserves a permanent 'Shavaasan' (a yoga position that involves lying down like a corpse)," the Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece 'Saamana'.

It said that while chief ministers of non-BJP states may oppose Modi, yoga is a science that should not be opposed.

"A lot can be achieved through yoga. But, in daily life, can yoga help in relieving the pains of high inflation and corruption? It would be good if a clarification is given on this as well," it said.

The United Nations had last year declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga.
