Muslim Ban on Yoga

So several Muslim authorities have banned the practice of yoga, by Muslims because of its Hindu or Kaffir origin, see report by The Guardian. I am surprised that other Muslim authorities and propagandists haven't claimed that Yoga is a purely Muslim invention like the zero another ancient Indian invention.

A commenter, xyberia, on one of The Guardian reports on this laughable story calls the MUI, the Indonesian Ulema Council, the Indonesia governmental Muslim "brain trust" as Many Unintelligent Individuals.

UPDATE
Here is an old but relevant story on anti-yoga activities in Malaysia from my friend's blog The Eleventh Hour.
