Mathura: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Wednesday lauded the constructive role played by the Gurukul system of education and expressed his commitment to revive the old system in the country.

He said the British rulers abolished the Gurukul system to inculcate western culture in Indians.

"In order to inculcate western culture in the future generation, during the British regime, Lord Dalhousie replaced Gurukuls with convent schools... We shall open seven lakh Acharyakulams and re-establish Gurukuls," Ramdev said here.
