Professor Sadhna Dhanoria, head of the yoga department, said, "Till last year, we had only one or two Muslim students in our department but this time, four have taken admission. All of them perform all aasans as instructed by the faculty.” Yoga course was introduced in the university in 2007. After 2000, Muslim students began to take admission in the course.
The Muslim students are not the only non-Hindu students who are taking up yoga studies. Three Christian students, 30 students from Jain and other faiths have also taken admission in the department.
