In an exclusive video message, Sonu Nigam has echoed Baba Ramdev's view that Yoga is beyond religion. He also harkens back to his past and speaks about how he was initiated into Yoga. 

That Yoga has been a significant part of Sonu Nigam's life is evident, not only from the experiences that he shares, but also from the fact that he coins a new term -- fana-lunatics (fanatic + lunatic ?) -- to describe those fringe elements who are currently communalising Yoga.
